HEC Paris – A ‘finance fiction’ study – What Would Be the Consequences of Banning Derivatives from the Asset Management Industry?

Finyear.com, 15 October 2013

Christophe Pérignon, HEC Paris Finance Professor, has conducted a finance-fiction study into the consequences of banning derivatives from the asset management industry. Undertaken in partnership with Alessandro Beber, Professor of Finance at Cass Business School, the what-if analysis looks at the potential consequences for asset managers and their customers if such a ban were to be enforced. The study describes what an economy without derivatives would look like, with particular regard for the asset management industry as it makes use of derivative instruments for hedging and investment purposes.
