Information asymmetry, conflicts of interest, and securities regulation

The efforts to integrate capital markets in the European Union (EU) led to the adoption of securities regulation to enhance competitiveness of capital markets, reduce market abuse, and increase transparency. The goal of this project is to study the impact of EU securities regulation on firms’ information asymmetry and how it affects managerial practices and outcomes around announcements of corporate events.
