More Information

LAWRENCE — A pre-eminent financial scholar will present cutting-edge industry research to executives in the Wichita area next month.

Robert DeYoung, finance professor at the University of Kansas School of Business and Capitol Federal Professor in Financial Markets and Institutions, will present “How Big Should Your Bank Be?” at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 6, at the Wichita Country Club in Wichita.

In his talk, DeYoung will report what researchers have recently found—and what common sense suggests—about scale economies at banks.

DeYoung is a former official at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation in Washington, D.C., and a former senior economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.

He is president of the Southern Finance Association and serves on the faculty of the Barcelona School of Banking.

DeYoung has a doctorate in economics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

His research efforts focus on an interdisciplinary analysis of financial institutions – bringing together academic research, government policy making and financial practice.

He speaks regularly at conferences in the U.S. and internationally, and his research and writings have appeared in The Journal of Finance, the American Banker and The Wall Street Journal, among others.

DeYoung is co-editor of the Journal of Credit, Money and Banking.

The presentation is free. Media are invited to attend.

The University of Kansas is a major comprehensive research and teaching university. University Relations is the central public relations office for KU's Lawrence campus.
