Peaqs is a high level learning game platform that combines a project development project process with a virtual stock market engine for real-time valuation and peer feedback. Peaqs starts off with students forming groups and developing ideas for a viable business, product or service. This output is then presented on a stock market simulation platform where the same students act as individual investors who buy, sell and manage portfolios of the products listed. This provides instant market feedback and motivates the groups to develop their ideas to even greater refinement.

Investors need to ask themselves if they could have invested in penicillin knowing the impact it was going to have last century would they have dived in Investors are facing a similar scenario with PLM. This is perhaps the biggest antiviral discovery of the century which amounts to a functional cure for COVID and possibly other viruses. Will investors stay on the sideline because some grumpy shareholder is selling not allowing immediate price discovery or will they step up to secure their place in history Time will tell, but what is certain is that PLM will save an immeasurable amount of lives and take away untold suffering if it can navigate its way to regulatory approval. But while BIXT may be curing Covid, there is still only one cure for FOMO. Investors would do well to stop waiting on the sidelines to enter or affirm their positions before this game-changing anti-viral goes viral.
An essential and yet understudied reality is that the quest for luck is driving success among buyers and sellers in some industries in Nigeria. One good example is the Nigerian sports betting industry.
Selected Working papers: Switching Costs, Deposit Insurance and Deposit Withdrawals from Distressed Banks. M. Brown, B. Guin and S. Morkötter, Working Paper on Finance No. 2013/9, University of St.Gallen, November 2013. We study deposit withdrawals by retail customers of two large Swiss banks after these banks incurred substantial losses in the wake of the U.S. subprime crisis. We find that households are 16 percentage points more likely to withdraw deposits from the two large Swiss banks than from any other Swiss bank. The propensity to withdraw deposits is substantially reduced by household-level switching costs: Households which rely on a single deposit account, which do not live close to any other bank, or which maintain a credit relationship the large Swiss banks, are significantly less likely to withdraw deposits. Financing Asset Sales and Business Cycles. M. Arnold, D. Hackbarth and T. Puhan, Working Paper on Finance No 13/20 University of St.Gallen, November 2013. We analyze the decision of firms to sell assets to fund investments (financing asset sales). We document empirical patterns of financing asset sales that cannot be explained with traditional motives for selling assets, such as financial distress or financing constraints. Using a structural model, we show that financing asset sales attenuate the debt overhang problem, because they imply lower wealth transfers from equity to debt than identical but equity financed investments. This motive to reduce the wealth transfer problem can explain how financing asset sales empirically relate to firm characteristics, and to business cycles. Understanding FX Liquidity. N. Karnaukh, A. Ranaldo and P. Söderlind, Working Paper on Finance No 13/15 University of St.Gallen, September 2013. Previous studies of liquidity in the foreign exchange (FX) market span short time periods or focus on specific measures of liquidity. In contrast, we provide a comprehensive study of FX liquidity and commonality over more than two decades and a cross-section of forty exchange rates. After identifying the most accurate liquidity proxies based on low-frequency and readily available data, we show that commonality in FX liquidities is stronger for developed currencies and in highly volatile markets. We also show that FX liquidity deteriorates with risk in stock, bond and FX markets, and that riskier currencies are more exposed to liquidity drops. Conference presentations: 59ce067264
