Seminar: “Regulating Shorts: Disclosure, Restrictions, or Neither”

Advertisement: Charles Jones, Columbia University – Even though the academic research finds that short sellers seem to provide liquidity and improve price discovery, short sellers continue to be a particular concern to regulators and policymakers. In the past decade, policymakers have imposed short-selling restrictions and bans of varying degrees, but recently regulatory practice is moving towards changing the disclosure requirements. To provide an academic view on the related discussions, in his new study, Professor Charles Jones explores the implications of higher disclosure of large short positions in the markets – a new rule now being implemented in European markets.
