Goodman talk to look at financial derivatives as business tool

New research is revealing how financial derivatives can be used not only as a tool for investors but also for business management decisions.

The use of derivatives — contracts in finance that hold value based on agreed-upon assets such as bonds — in organizational decision-making will be at the centre of the next Goodman Luncheon Speaker Series event Friday, Oct. 30.

John Campbell, Accounting Professor, PhD Program Director and EY Faculty Fellow at the J.M. Tull School of Accounting at the University of Georgia, will discuss how derivatives are used, also touching on potential implications.

His presentation, “Derivatives use and its consequences for management earnings forecasts,” will also explore his current research progress and the academic peer-review process to get a paper published in an academic journal.

Campbell is the editor of Contemporary Accounting Research, as well as an editorial board member of The Accounting Review; Journal of Business, Finance, and Accounting; and Journal of Contemporary Management.

The online talk will take place from noon to 2:30 p.m. via Lifesize.

The Goodman School of Business Luncheon Speaker Series provides Goodman faculty, staff and students with an informal opportunity to listen to and discuss recent advances in research, teaching and practices with international business colleagues.
