Brattle Associate Shastri Sandy will present at the Midwest Finance Association’s (MFA) 66th Annual Conference taking place March 1-4, 2017 in Chicago, IL.

The event provides a forum for academics and finance industry professionals dedicated to sharing information about recent advances in financial theory and practice.

Dr. Sandy will present his paper, “A First Glimpse into the Short Side of Hedge Funds,” which was co-authored with University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Professor of Finance Neil D. Pearson, and Assistant Professor of Finance Jaewon Choi. The paper provides evidence about the profitability of hedge fund short trades in equities, and identifies the opening and closing of equity short sales by hedge funds and other institutional investors.
