Quantitative finance is an interdisciplinary research area related to finance, mathematics, and statistics, and is relevant to both the private and public financial sectors. Two areas of finance require advanced quantitative techniques: a) asset pricing, and b) risk and portfolio management. To make further progress in these two areas, our program will focus on the following three themes:
  • Stochastic control in asset pricing and risk/portfolio management
  • Econometrics for stock return and volatility
  • Pricing and risk management for fixed-income products

  • Workshop 1: Stochastic Control in Finance, 22-26 July 2019
  • Workshop 2: Fintech and Machine Learning, 5-9 August 2019
  • Workshop 3: Asset Pricing and Risk Management, 26-30 August 2019
