Dr Attilio Meucci, CFA

The most advanced statistical and optimization techniques are introduced and thoroughly discussed by means of live MATLAB simulations, intuitive geometrical representations, figures and plenty of examples.

The workshop is based on Dr. Meucci’s bestseller Risk and Asset Allocation (Springer Finance, 2005). Participants will receive a complimentary copy of the book and all the code used in the demos.


AUDIENCE

Buy-side practitioners (portfolio managers and risk managers with solid quantitative background) will deepen and broaden their understanding of the recipes they implement everyday and will learn the most cutting-edge techniques.

Academics and sell-side practitioners (traders, financial engineers, quantitative analysts, research teams) will understand the big-picture and the details of buy-side finance in a concise, quantitative language to them familiar.
