Andrea Vedolin

It's not all Alpha and Beta...liquidity matters! Professor Vedolin's research confirms the predictions that less liquid stocks outperform more liquid names...globally and within countries. Results of several strategies achieve significant abnormal returns, above and beyond simple beta-betting approaches.
