Financial Risk, Insurance, Econometrics and Stochastic Finance
This theme has a research program that encompasses a range of theoretical, methodological and applied problems encountered in financial risk, insurance, economics and finance. Each topic is covered from a statistical and stochastic process perspective. Examples of active areas include topics ranging from Solvency II, Basel III, non-life insurance, re-insurance, catastrophe bonds and insurance linked securities, Operational Risk, commodity modelling, econometrics, limit order book modelling, high frequency trading and execution algorithms and currency carry.
