About the Project

The recent financial crises led to new risks, measures of risk and asset classes coming into the spotlight; the degree of interconnectedness of financial institutions is also now given its due attention. The seminar series provides an overview of this new financial reality, with sessions on new risks, new asset classes, as well as new measures of risk and risk transmission mechanisms.

The series also establishes links between academia and the financial industry. This is of particular importance since, while innovation in the modelling of financial activity and risks takes place in academia, product innovation is always led by the practice. The seminar series helps create a forum where academics can benefit from learning about the latest developments in the markets and practitioners can become accustomed with the state of art in financial modelling.
