Research Interests

Professor Takeshi Yamada's research field covers empirical research in financial markets. Some of his research projects examine the relation between size premium and the preference of institutional investors, value premium and the behavior of individual investors. Other interests include institutional short selling, mutual fund behaviour, and how public information affect the investor trades.

Takeshi is also interested in how government institutions affect private firms and financial markets. One of his research projects examines the incentives of the government to maintain control in privatized state-owned companies in China.
