Financial market structure analyzes the functioning of financial markets, including the determinants of market quality (market efficiency, liquidity, and price discovery), the incentives underlying various trading strategies, and why markets are organized differently for stocks, corporate bonds, and foreign exchange. The Finance Section at Stockholm Business School is home to cluster of researchers in this field. For more information about our research in the field, click here.
