about this book

deutsch | english

The book focuses on two central issues in the area of empirical asset pricing, especially in the German context. On the one hand, with the question whether it is advantageous to invest in German stock mutual funds, and on the other hand, whether the Capital Asset Pricing Model is able to explain the returns of German stocks. The results of the research projects are of great importance for long-term investors, in particular for old-age provision considerations, finance managers, regulation authorities, the legislator and the administration of justice.
