Finance professor's insider trading research featured on NPR

Tuesday, April 9, 2013


KU finance professor Paul Koch’s research on insider trading is receiving national attention.

His study, which has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Finance, was highlighted in an April 9 story by National Public Radio. Koch, along with researchers at the University of Auckland and the University of Sydney, discovered a new way to spot insider trading.

As the story explains, the researchers tracked half a million stock market accounts over a 15-year period between 1995 and 2010. Their findings yielded unusual results.

To Find Insider Trading, Follow the Kid’s Money is available online.
