Description: Race inequality is well-documented in literature—certain groups, for example, African-Americans, often do not enjoy the same access to opportunities as their counterparts. Prior studies document that African-Americans are less likely to receive funding opportunities than whites and pay higher interest rates because of statistical discrimination and taste-based discrimination. However, less is known about race inequality in corporate leadership.

Professor Seyhun and his collaborators investigate racial differences in insider trading behavior by corporate leaders of S&P 1500 companies. Investigating race differences in the profitability of insider trades of these companies enables us to evaluate whether African-American corporate executives have equal access to networks that generate valuable insider information as their counterparts in similar positions.  
The Center on Finance, Law & Policy’s “blue bag lunches” aim to foster interdisciplinary collaborations and showcase the work being done at the University of Michigan on issues related to finance, law, and policy. Faculty and graduate students are welcome to present research related to finance, law, and policy at any stage at these monthly events – from general questions and ideas, to works-in-progress, to published work.

Blue Bag Lunches are generally held on the first Thursday of each month from Noon – 1:00 p.m. For the fall semester, these will take place in the Law School's Jeffries Hall, Room 1060.
