Paris, March 18 & 19, 2024

The Institut Louis Bachelier, in cooperation with the Fondation du Risque, the Europlace Institute of Finance and the Louis Bachelier “Finance and Sustainable Growth” Laboratory, is pleased to invite you to the 17th Financial Risks International Forum.

This year’s forum will focus on the theme: “Big Data and Algorithmic Finance”

The last 40 years have seen huge innovations in computing technology and data availability. Data derived from millions of administrative records or using new methods of data generation such as text mining are now widespread. Banks, insurance and investors are using an increasing amount of data to understand consumers’ or firms’ behavior, and design investment or trading strategies. Algorithms start to be major players in many areas, and regulations, which were mostly designed for humans, need to adapt to this new environment.

This upcoming 17th Financial Risks International Forum aims to discuss the challenges posed by the use of big data and algorithmic finance.

2024 Guest Speakers are:

  • Christine A. Parlour, Sylvan C. Coleman Chair at the Haas School, UC Berkeley and co-director of the Berkeley Center for Responsible Decentralized Intelligence
  • Rama Cont, Chair of Mathematical Finance, University of Oxford
  • Thierry Foucault, Professor of Finance, HEC Paris
