Quantitative and Empirical Finance
Each year, the Department of Banking and Finance at Monash University and the Q Group (an association of Australian practitioners and researchers in quantitative finance) come together to explore the latest tools, techniques and results in finance and investment. For 2014, the Australian Centre for Financial Studies (ACFS) will once again join in support of the Colloquium contributing to the exchange of ideas between academia and industry.
The idea is to provide information which is both useful to practitioners, and thought provoking to academics.
This year’s colloquium has an eclectic blend of presentations, covering a wide gamut of quantitative and empirical finance. From the intriguingly titled ‘Zero Intelligence Analysis of Financial Markets’ to Big Data, the ‘Silk Road to Alpha’, further insights on momentum; practical information on Risk Systems and much more.
However, this Colloquium is not all about sitting and listening. The breaks throughout the day allow for maximal interaction and networking opportunities, promising a fruitful intermingling between finance academics and practitioners. In fact, our strongest prior feedback has not just been on the quality of the presentations, but importantly also on the networks and relationships which were formed.
Registration is now open.
The closing date for registration is 4 June 2014.
