EDHEC-Risk Institute, KAIST, Princeton and Tsinghua Universities have joined forces to host an international series of conferences on financial technologies as a forum to facilitate discussion among all interested parties (academics, practitioners and regulators) around the world.
After successful events organised in Princeton in 2017 and Seoul in 2018, EDHEC-Risk Institute is pleased to be hosting the "Advances in Financial Technologies and Applications to Investment Solutions for Individuals" conference, which will be held in Paris on 2 April 2019 at the Palais Brongniart – a flagship monument on Paris' historic landscape as it was the home of the French Stock Exchange for nearly two centuries. Attendees will have the opportunity to have informal discussions in the Espace Corbeille, which is harks back to the ambience of the original Stock Exchange. This new space, managed by our endorsing partner La Place, is the recently-launched Fintech meeting point for companies and organisations involved in the fields of banking, finance, insurance and technology. The conference also receives the endorsement of Fintech France and the Louis Bachelier Institute.
Leading experts from the US, Asia and Europe will be featured at the conference, including, Lionel Martellini (Director of EDHEC-Risk Institute), Changle Lin (Adjunct Professor, Tsinghua University), John Mulvey (Professor and founding member of the Bendheim Centre for Finance at Princeton University), Laurent Calvet (Professor at EDHEC Business School) and Woo Chang Kim (Associate Professor at KAIST).
The conference sessions will include presentations on the following themes:
The conference will also include two workshops in parallel sessions, conducted by official partners Samsung Asset Management and Amundi.
The conference will close with a roundtable session entitled "The Rise of Robo-Advisors: A Threat or an Opportunity for the Wealth Management Industry?", moderated by Yuri Bender from the Financial Times.
