MCFAM Summer Symposium - Predictive Modeling in Quantitative Finance and Actuarial Risk Management


 Second Annual MCFAM Summer Symposium
July 25 - 27, 2014

Predictive analytics, modeling and "big data" are having an immense impact on the financial industry. The second annual MCFAM Summer Symposium, Predictive Modeling in Quantitative Finance and Actuarial Risk Management, will explore the current state of predictive modeling today and how it is used across a variety of insurance and quant finance areas. We will also review new frontiers and research in statistics and high dimensional data. The Symposium will additionally examine data privacy law and regulation related to predictive modeling; and industry experts will participate in a panel discussing the real-world challenges and opportunities related to predictive modeling. 

"Information is the Oil of the 21st Century, and analytics is the combustion engine."
