    In collaboration with the Duisenberg School of Finance and the University of Toulouse, the London School of Economics is hosting the fourth year of this summer doctoral programme in finance. The aim of the summer school is to teach cutting edge methodology in modelling the causes and outcomes of dysfunctional financial markets, both from a theoretical and an empirical perspective. Instructors are chosen from amongst top researchers actively working in these areas. The summer school is aimed at offering tools to understand determinants of mispricing and excess risk creation, to incorporate them into valuation and risk choices, and ultimately to inform the debate on financial regulatory reform. Over the four days there will be 6 lectures each of three hours in length, details as follow: Wednesday 5 June: Bank regulation - Enrico Perotti (University of Amsterdam): Liquidity transformation and shadow banking. - Jean-Charles Rochet (University of Zurich): Bank capital regulation and credit fluctuations. Thursday 6 June: Financial intermediaries and asset prices I - Wei Xiong (Princeton University): Financial frictions and the financialization of commodities. Friday 7 June: Rents in the financial sector -Bruno Biais (University of Toulouse): The (ir)resistible rise of rents in the financial sector. Saturday 8 June: Financial intermediaries and asset prices II - Dimitri Vayanos (London School of Economics): Intermediation, fund flows and return predictability: Theory. - Christopher Polk (London School of Economics): Intermediation, fund flows and return predictability: Empirics. Students are also invited to the sixth annual conference of the Paul Woolley Centre, which is scheduled to take place on Thursday and Friday 6-7 June. The lectures on Thursday and Friday will be scheduled to minimise any overlap with the conference.
