The Austrian Working Group on Banking and Finance held its 34th workshop on November 22 and 23, 2019. For the first time, this workshop took place outside of Austria, albeit in its immediate neighborhood: in Vaduz, Liechtenstein. This long-established working group traditionally brings together members of the community of banking and finance researchers from all over Austria for a workshop in late November of every years.

This year's workshop saw a strong showing of FiRe researchers, with Lisa-Maria Kampl, Stefan Palan and Ines Wöckl attending despite the fact that they had the longest commute. Stefan presented his joint work with Josef Fink and Erik Theissen, titled "Earnings Autocorrelation and the Post-Earnings-Announcement Drift", and Ines presented her joint work with Edwin Fischer and Lisa-Maria Kampl, titled "On the Valuation and Analysis of Risky Debt: A Theoretical Approach Using a Multivariate Extension of the Merton Model".
