Theme:Portfolio approach’s application in real option theory and other relevant theoretical perspectives

Time:2020-01-13 10:00

Address:Room 1008, Mingde Business Building




Portfolio approach is increasingly used in real option theory research as well as in relevant research. It is found that switching option is less effective if the investment portfolio is characterized with subadditivity. The growth option value is mitigated if firms fail to align its investment, both at overall and at individual level, to the external conditions. The recent research also reveals that firms are likely to enter the country if the new host country enhances the operational flexibility in the portfolio, which is also contingent on several portfolio characteristics. This talk will also take a look at some possible areas where portfolio approach can be applied.
