Swiss Society for Financial Market Research (SGF)

  • Description
  • The Swiss Soci­ety for Finan­cial Mar­ket Research (Schweiz­erische Gesellschaft für Finanz­mark­t­forschung, SGF) was founded by Dr. Werner Rein and a group of Swiss econ­o­mists in 1986. The main pur­pose of the soci­ety was to pro­mote mod­ern finance and to enhance the com­mu­ni­ca­tion between aca­d­e­mics and prac­ti­tion­ers in this new and grow­ing field, at this time.

    To achieve this, the quar­terly jour­nal “Finanz­markt und Port­fo­lio Man­age­ment” (Finan­cial Mar­kets and Port­fo­lio Man­age­ment) was launched. Its Edi­tors were Dr. Mar­tin Jet­zer and Prof. Dr. Wal­ter Wasser­fallen and Prof. Dr. Heinz Zim­mer­mann. Since April 2004 the edi­tor is Prof. Dr. Manuel Ammann. Among the other activ­i­ties of the soci­ety are irreg­u­lar press talks on recent finance issues pub­lished in the jour­nal and the annual conference.

    Finan­cial Mar­kets and Port­fo­lio Man­age­ment (FMPM)

    The jour­nal Finan­cial Mar­kets and Port­fo­lio Man­age­ment invites sub­mis­sions of orig­i­nal research arti­cles in all areas of finance, includ­ing finan­cial mar­kets, port­fo­lio choice and wealth man­age­ment, asset pric­ing, cor­po­rate finance, cor­po­rate gov­er­nance, alter­na­tive invest­ments, risk man­age­ment, and reg­u­la­tion. Its prin­ci­pal objec­tive is to pub­lish high-​quality arti­cles of inno­v­a­tive research and prac­ti­cal appli­ca­tion. The read­ers of Finan­cial Mar­kets and Port­fo­lio Man­age­ment are aca­d­e­mics and pro­fes­sion­als in finance and eco­nom­ics, espe­cially in the areas of asset management.

    The jour­nal is the offi­cial pub­li­ca­tion of the Swiss Finan­cial Ana­lysts Asso­ci­a­tion (SFAA). Since 2005, FMPM has been pub­lished entirely in Eng­lish by Springer. FMPM is indexed in EBSCO, ECO­NIS, Econ­Lit, E-​JEL, JEL on CD, Jour­nal of Eco­nomic Lit­er­a­ture, Research Papers in Eco­nom­ics (RePEc), and SCOPUS.
