The Centre of Asset Pricing and Corporate Governance Studies is a collaborative research group that consists of academics from the University of Newcastle and internationally-recognised academics at other Australian and overseas institutions.

Researchers within the Centre undertake industry-relevant research into funds management and financial asset behaviour. The research into corporate governance primarily examines continuous disclosure and reporting integrity, and its relevance to firm performance.

The Centre is funded from both industry and university sources – including competitive funding obtained from Platypus Asset Management.

In addition to the graduation of three recent PhD students, there are currently over 20 PhD students being supervised by members of the Centre.
