SME Stock Markets efficiency and their dynamic impacts on macroeconomic development: Evidence from tropical economies

Trang Nguyen is a PhD Researcher in the field of financial economics with a major focus on the second-tier stock market for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). Her research centers around the second-tier stock market efficiency and its dynamic impacts (direct and indirect) on economic development with case studies in the tropical economies. Specifically, she investigates the topics related to the evolution of market efficiency, the dual long-memory component in return and asymmetric volatility, the dynamic transmissions between stock markets under several impact factors, and the dynamic impacts of stock market and innovation on macroeconomic indicators. To conduct such investigations, she adopts time series analysis, financial econometric models, Kaleckian-Post-Keynesian macroeconomic models, and other relevant estimation techniques. Accordingly, her research has many important implications for policymakers, investors, and portfolio managers.
