The academicians touched some new topical issues of modern economics, such as digitalization and as well as the ongoing debate on the diversity of the board of directors. Researchers presented new topics such as: the emergence of a new phenomenon in institutional ownership - the Stewardship, the construction of mental models of management, the impact of co-option directors during mergers and acquisitions, professionalism in the family business and much more. The participants from the Higher School of Economics university, which presented three articles prepared in the Corporate Finance Center, stood out among the new, brightly voiced topics. Presentations were made by Karnoukhova Elena, a 2nd year SCF master student, with an article about institutional investors in the ownership structure of US innovative companies, and Anilov Artem, a postgraduate PhD student about the influence of the board of directors on CEO behavior and a decision making process on dividend payout policy. But this year the article on a comparative analysis of the financial architecture of Russian and UK companies, conducted using the cluster analysis, was marked by a special attention. This article written under the supervision of Stepanova Anastasia and Ivashkovskaya Irina in collaboration with Makhoni Vladislav received the nomination “Best paper award”.
The quote of the permanent participant of the conference over the past 10 years and the head of the School of Finance Ivashkovskaya Irina:
“We are again in Brussels at the Corporate Governance Workshop. It’s damn nice that our research on the financial architecture of companies impressed our colleagues from different countries again, just like 10 years ago, when we won here and received the prize in the Journal of Management and Governance (Springer supported). Over the years, new ideas have certainly been added to our past ideas, we have made financial architecture patterns, and new members of our team have been added to this field, our young interns. It’s great that there are already reliable heads and hands which catch up and develop ideas embedded in them.”
