Corporate Financial Architecture

Main objectives: 

Project "Corporate financial architecture" (CFA) continues the empirical research on a topics, outlined in 2019:

  • Specifics of the ownership structure of innovative companies,
  • The role and activity of different types of institutional investors in them;
  • Specifics of corporate governance mechanisms and the activities of boards of directors in different types (patterns) of corporate financial architecture of innovative companies.

In 2020 we introduce a behavioral argument into the analysis of CFA. New stram of research encompasses the role of personal and behavioral characteristics of CEOs and their effect on the innovation and investment activities of companies. Taking into the account the likeliness of negative consequences of CEOs' behavioral anomalies, we investigate the role of boards of directors in countering and reducing these consequences.

We also focus on the impact of digitalization and transformation of business [by introducing 'smart contracts'] on corporate governance mechanisms, functions and roles of board of directors.

Foci of research of the team members (in 2019):
