Clinical Assistant Professor of Finance
University at Buffalo School of Management
Corporate finance; mergers and acquisitions; shareholder activism; corporate governance; investment management
Jennifer Wu can discuss corporate finance, primarily mergers and acquisitions, shareholder activism, corporate governance and corporate innovation.
For example, a recent study she published found activist hedge funds play a critical role in the market for corporate control. They improve the efficiency of firms’ M&A activities through interventions. Her research added to the ongoing debate — whether hedge fund activism creates long-term value to shareholders or seeks a quick buck.
Wu can respond to interviews in English and Chinese (Mandarin).
