Dr Mardy Chiah

Senior Lecturer in Finance
PhD in Finance, Monash University, Australia; Bachelor of Commerce (Honours), Monash University, Australia


I completed Ph.D. in Finance from Monash University. My core research area is in the empirical asset pricing of stocks. This research examines multifactor asset pricing models, stock market anomalies, and whether observed patterns in stock prices have behavioural or risk-based explanations. My research interests also include investments, behavioural finance, funds management & performance evaluation, default risk analysis, socially responsible investments, market reaction to corporate actions, retail and institutional trading behaviours, banking & regulations, and capital market research.

I have published articles in more than ten reputable finance journals that are ABDC A/A* ranked. They include Journal of Banking and Finance (A*), Critical Finance Review (A*), Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization (A*), International Review of Finance (A)Pacific-Basin Finance Journal (A), Economics Letters (A), and Finance Research Letters (A).

My research has been cited by a number of news media and practitioner journals such as The Age, CFA Institute Journal Review, Motley's Fool, AusBiz as well as radio channels. For example, my research discusses the retail trading frenzy on ASX since the COVID-19 pandemic. I am available for media commentary on issues and events related to the Australian and international stock and financial markets.
