Theme: Empirical modelling: distributional assumptions/efficiency – 2008 crisis
This seminar is an ESRC research seminar. Find out about our other research seminars.
This is the second seminar in a four seminar series.
The series will involve leading experts presenting papers on two key themes which are absolutely central in financial modelling: distributional assumptions and efficiency. The conference series will tie these two key themes to the events of the 2008 financial crisis. It will attempt to shed light on how financial modelling can possibly be re-interpreted in light of the 2008 crisis.
The seminar is being organised by Professor Wilson (co-investigator) at University of St Andrews.
