Brock professor explores Canadian hybrid mutual funds

Performance evaluation of Canadian hybrid mutual funds has received little attention in finance literature despite the growing importance of this group. One Goodman researcher is addressing this gap by examining whether this economically important group of funds has any timing ability.

Professor Mohamed Ayadi.

On Friday, Nov. 29, Professor of Finance Mohamed Ayadi will deliver a presentation about his research titled “Robust Market Timing Tests of Canadian Hybrid Mutual Funds” as part of the Goodman School of Business Luncheon Speaker Series.

Prior to joining Brock University, he taught at Concordia University and the University of Quebec. In 2009, Ayadi received the Faculty of Business Award for Excellence in Teaching and was the recipient of the 2018 Departmental Researcher of the Year Award. He has published papers for the Journal of Banking and Finance, Journal of Futures Markets, International Review of Finance, Journal of Financial Services Research, and the European Journal of Operations Research, among others.

The Goodman Speaker Series provides an informal opportunity to listen and discuss recent advances in research, teaching and practices with international business colleagues.

His talk will run from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in the Goodman School of Business Room 310. Goodman faculty, staff and students are invited to attend. Brock community members interested in attending are encouraged to email Jennifer Brisson at to reserve a seat.
