The European Finance Association is a non-profit association with scientific and pedagogical objectives. Therefore, all annual meetings including the EFA 2017 Annual Meeting in Mannheim, Germany, are heavily funded by external organizations. Without the financial support of these entities, it would not be possible to complete a successful meeting.

We wish to give special thanks to our partners for the forthcoming EFA 2017 Annual Meeting. We also like to thank the University of Mannheim, the Business School, the Finance Department, and the European Finance Association for their continuous support.

We would also like to seize this opportunity to extend our deepest thanks to the Universita della Svizzera italiana in Lugano, Switzerland, for developing this website.
