Investors’ Behaviors in Equity-Crowdfunding
Abstract: Despite its rapid development in many European economies and the new opportunities it brings in financing early stage companies, equity crowdfunding is still confidential. Then, equity-crowdfunders can be considered as marginal investors. Within the theoretical framework of behavioral finance, the aim of this seminar is to discuss whether the choice of participating in equity-crowdfunding platforms from a buy-side perspective could be a consequence of uncommon attitudes towards risk.

Mini-bonds and SMEs funding
Abstract: In Europe, disintermediation is a strong trend since the global financial crisis in 2008. For firms, this movement has been accompanied by the emergence of new means of financing and an increase of capital markets’ financing. The access to debt capital markets has developed for unlisted companies and SMEs. Then, market-based debt in Europe became a focus of attention from 2009, as well as other alternatives to fund enterprises, mainly SMEs, to allow them to innovate and grow. Within the framework of capital structure literature, the aim of this seminar is to discuss the firms’choice of debt sources with an emphasize on the Italian Mini-bonds market.
