Research activities at the Institute for Finance & Banking concentrate on current issues on Corporate Finance and Banking. Our research activities are generally quantitatively or emprirically oriented.
Our current research mainly deals with questions regarding default risks, optimal capital structures and the systematic risk of German companies. Let me draw your attention to the Working Paper Data Base of the LMU which also quotes our working papers. The data sources available to the Institute for Empiric Research also accesible for students will be found under Data Base.
