Themes

Behavioural Finance Theme

Behavioral Finance

Representing a novel research domain and led by Dr Cormac O Keeffe, the focus under this theme is on examining the influence of psychology on the behaviour of individuals, firms, and financial markets. Professor William Forbes of Queen Mary University of London, a distinguished academic on this topic is a Visiting Professor to the Centre and research collaborator of the theme’s leader, Dr Cormac O Keeffe. The School of Business is also the very first to offer Behavioural Finance as a module for undergraduate students.


Current research projects under this theme include:

Title: “Pricing of New Offers in IPO Clusters”,

PhD candidate: Oksana Doherty,

Supervisors: Dr Cormac O Keeffe and Professor William Forbes.

 

Title: “An Investigation into Analysts’ Conflicts of Interest Pre and Post the Financial Crisis: the impact of European Union’s Market Abuse Directive 2003/EC 6 (MAD)”,

PhD candidate, Nora Gordon,

Supervisors: Dr Cormac O Keeffe and Dr Sheila O Donohoe

 

Title: “Investing in the low carbon agenda: perspectives from Germany, Ireland and the UK”,

PhD candidate: Norah Storey,

Supervisors: Dr Sheila O Donohoe and Dr Tom Egan.


Completed research projects under this theme include:

Title: “Momentum in the UK Stock Market: Cause and Effect and the Role of Brokers and Analysts”,

PhD graduate, Dr Aine Murphy,

Supervisors: Dr Cormac O Keeffe and Professor William Forbes


Research overview:

This study sought to determine if momentum was present in the UK stock market between the years 1995 and 2013. Momentum refers to the tendency for stocks that have previously performed well to continue to do so. Employing the model developed in the seminal paper of momentum by Jegadeesh and Titman (1993) the level of momentum in the UK stock market will be determined, additionally the key causes of the phenomenon will be discussed, specifically what role brokers and analysts play in exacerbating momentum in the market. Furthermore, by examining the recommendations and forecasts of analysts, two things will be evaluated; 1) analyst behaviour during times of financial crisis and 2) the over-inference of analysts’ recommendations in the context of the law of small numbers theory.

    Small Firm Finance Theme

    Small Firm Finance Theme

    Supervisor: Dr Sheila O Donohoe

    This research has been presented in a number of national and international conferences including the 2013 Doctoral Consortium of the American Accounting Association with the first output published in the Journal of Corporate Finance in April 2017.

     

    Title: An Investigation of Inefficiencies in Enterprise Supports: A Study of the Irish Enterprise Support System

    PhD Candidate: Dr Dave Pasley

    Supervisor: Dr Sheila O Donohoe

    This thesis evaluated aspects of the effectiveness of financial support issued by agencies Enterprise Ireland (EI) and The City and County Enterprise Boards (CEBs) adopting a holistic view and devised a novel framework to explain the potential relationships between the different concepts, for their simultaneous measurement. The findings suggest that deadweight is present in the Irish enterprise support system, but is less prolific than outlined by previous research. Furthermore, deadweight is shown to be perpetuated by selection biases on the part of support agencies and the enterprise’s potential to substitute private finance with public funds. Yet evidence of additionality has the potential to mitigate for some of these inefficiencies.
