The world economy is experiencing big challenges and is exposed to great uncertainties as growth continues to slow down and interest rates are expected to remain at all-time lows. The future challenge for investors is to generate sufficient returns from their investments in this low growth and low interest rates environment, forcing them to consider switching their investments from defensive assets, such as cash and fixed income securities, into higher yielding assets with consequent changes in asset allocations and risks in their portfolios. However, the effects of these global challenges, uncertainties and opportunities to financial and investment management are unknown.

This special issue of Studies in Economics and Finance will focus on issues surrounding the effect of global challenges, uncertainties, and opportunities through the lens of financial and investment management.

We welcome submissions to this special issue. Topics covered include (but are not limited to):

  • Portfolio/fund management including various related topics on mutual funds, Exchange Traded Funds, active funds, etc.
  • Recent challenges to financial management and financial decision making
  • Opportunities and uncertainties raised by Fintech
  • Effects of climate change
  • Green finance
  • Banking in low interest rate environment
  • New developments in venture capital and alternative finance.
