Emerging markets have experienced rapid economic growth over the past several decades and constitute half of the world's GDP. However, relative to the fast economic growth, capital markets in most of these countries have developed slowly. Furthermore, emerging markets are often dominated by individual investors who are frequently affected by speculative episodes. Institutional investors including hedge funds and mutual funds have become increasingly important in emerging markets and have an impact on capital markets as well as the real economy. Emerging markets thus constitute a challenge to existing asset pricing theory. As a result, there has been a growing research interest in using the unique institutional settings and rich data sources in China and other emerging markets to study a wide range of fundamental and interesting questions in assets pricing.

This special issue aims to improve our understanding on asset pricing in emerging markets. We encourage thoughtful analyses that spur insightful reflections on any topics of assets pricing in China and other emerging markets. We are also looking for new insights, creative solutions, as well as innovative ideas that takes us in new directions. Topics for the special issue can include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Behavioral finance
  • Investor behavior
  • Stock return patterns
  • Mutual fund
  • Hedge fund
  • Analysts
  • Fintech
  • Home finance
