Assoc. Prof. Michalis Doumpos, Technical University of Crete, Greece
Assoc. Prof. Hatem Masri, University of Bahrain, Kingdom of Bahrain
This special issue seeks to present the contributions of decision support methodologies in the fields of finance and insurance. Such methodologies originate from areas such as operations research, management science, and machine learning, providing the required analytical tools for strategic and operational decision-making at all levels of financial and insurance institutions. The special issue is particularly interested in approaches that adopt a multidimensional perspective that takes into consideration the multi-faceted nature of the financial and insurance environment. Submissions presenting new methodological developments, empirical results, computational analyses, and cases studies are welcome.
The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at of the 7th International Conference on Multidimensional Finance, Insurance and Investment (ICMFII'2018) but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited, to the following:
- Algorithmic trading
- Bank performance and efficiency
- Behavioural decision models
- Capital budgeting and financial planning
- Decision support models in portfolio management
- Financial decision-making under uncertainty and fuzziness
- Fund management and performance appraisal
- Intelligent financial decision support systems
- Multiple-objective and multicriteria models in finance and insurance
