The New York University Alumni Association in conjunction with the Mathematics in Finance Masters Program at NYU's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences proudly present:

Global Financial Stability and Long-Run Risks

Join Nobel prize-winning economist Robert Engle for a conversation on the causes of the recent financial crisis and the engleregulatory reforms that are being proposed for its solution.  He will investigate the concept of risk in financial markets, how it is measured with volatility models, and how it looks today.  In conclusion, he will address the long-run risks facing our society and the world: financial instability, war and terrorism, and global economic over-heating.

Robert Engle, the Michael Armellino Professor of Finance at New York University’s Stern School of Business, was awarded the 2003 Nobel Prize in Economics.  He is an expert in time series analysis, with a long-standing interest in financial markets.  Professor Engle is the Director of the NYU Stern Volatility Institute, the Co-Founding President of the Society for Financial Econometrics, and a member of the Courant Institute Mathematical Finance Advisory Board.
