Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The seminar provides an overview of the implications of climate risk on financial markets as well as the overall economy. Market reactions as well as market failures are addressed including policy options of financial markets (and monetary policy) to stimulate substitution to sustainable economic models of production and consumption.

1. Intergenerational Efficiency

2. Sustainable Finance (“Green Finance”)

3. Markets: Climate Risk and Asset Prices

4. Regulation and Monetary Policy
a. Climate stress tests
b. Systemic risk
c. Green collateral assets

Participants contribute to an overall debate at the final meeting by preparing a specific paper on a subtopic. The exchange of ideas and final discussion is the focal point of the seminar with the idea to summarize the current state of research on this topic as well as to identify open issues for further work.

Seminar thesis (50%)

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

This is an advanced master-level seminar. It also serves as a potential basis for the preparation of a master thesis or other advanced work. Therefore, having passed successfully the course "Basics of Finance" is a requirement, as well as having successfully passed the course "Asset Pricing I".

Grading is based on three elements:

1.The worked out seminar paper (40 points).
Each candidate has to submit a single-authored paper not exceeding 12 pages.
The seminar draft has to be submitted one week prior to the presentation in electronic form. This version is distributed to seminar participants in order to allow them preparation. After the presentation the paper can still be improved.
Final submission for all papers is January 31, 2019. Thereafter no corrections are possibly anymore.

2. Presentation of the seminar paper (30 points)
Presentations can be shared, but each candidate will be assessed on his/her own part.

3. Course participation (30 points)
Active preparation and participation are required as well as active reception and discussion of the work and presentations of peers. A seminar requires two-way communication, i.e. both a sender and a receiver. Accordingly, both roles will be relevant for grading.
