Welcome to Dr.Attaullah Shah's Personal Website

This website has been designed with an objective to facilitate students and researchers in Pakistan in their endeavors of
dissemination and creation of knowledge. Predominated by my field of specialization, the website is more inclined towards subjects of finance. However, it is equally appealing to students and researchers of allied fields such as economics, accounting, and others in terms of data and research help. Looking forward to positive feedback on how to improve its contents and access.
