Each year, the ICF hosts our annual Yale Junior Finance Conference, organized by the Yale SOM junior finance faculty. This year, Professors Cameron LaPoint, and Paul Fontanier organized the conference that took place on September 15th and invited 13 stellar junior finance faculty members from various business schools to participate.
The junior finance faculty spent the day presenting some of their latest research and receiving peer feedback. The intimate classroom setting and small group better allows for questions to be asked and honest feedback to be given. The junior faculty are then able to take that constructive feedback and make revisions to their papers that they will later present at other seminars and conferences.
