Canada Research Chair to speak on retail trading

Guest speaker Andriy Shkilko, Canada Research Chair in Financial Markets, will discuss how retail investors are impacted by the use of wholesalers at the Goodman School of Business’ Luncheon Speaker Series Friday, Sept. 15.

The Professor of Finance at the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics at Wilfrid Laurier University will share his research, which uses a multi-year U.S. dataset to show that wholesalers do not abuse market power, in the talk “The retail execution quality landscape.”

Shkilko studies algorithmic and high-frequency trading, information dissemination, market innovation, and institutional, retail and insider trading. His research explores whether the securities markets function optimally for the benefit of society and has received awards from the American Association of Individual Investors, Eastern Finance Association, Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada, Nasdaq and SIX Swiss Exchange among others.

The talk will run from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in GSB 310. The event is open to everyone and anyone interesting in attending can RSVP to Jennifer Smith at to reserve a seat.

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