Riccardo Rebonato speaking on smart beta fixed income at 14th Quantitative Finance Conference

Written on 10 September 2018.


Riccardo Rebonato, Professor of Finance, EDHEC Business School and Member, EDHEC-Risk Institute, will be speaking on fixed-income smart beta at the 14th Quantitative Finance Conference in Nice on 27 September, 2018.

The summit will bring together global quantitative experts from banks, buy-side, regulators, Silicon Valley and academia to discuss and debate quant tech developments including machine learning, big data, data science, HPC and blockchain applications, regulatory implementation, innovations in modelling and pricing, algorithmic and electronic trading, quantitative buy-side developments, computational and numerical efficiency, CCR, collateral and central clearing, risk management techniques, XVAs and FX and commodity derivatives.

Riccardo Rebonato will be speaking at the event on the theme "Value and Other Rewarded Factors for Smart Beta in Fixed Income". The session will examine the following issues:

  • “Where there is a risk there is a reward” – is this true?
  • Defining the value factor for fixed income
  • Extracting value using an economically justifiable proxy
  • Are risks other than duration rewarded in the yield curve?
  • Extracting compensation for slope risk using conditional strategies
  • Creating diversified smart-beta portfolio with exposure to value, level and slope factors
