Gambar Thalesian dari peristiwa Thalesians dari seluruh dunia selama 6 tahun terakhir The Thalesians adalah kelompok pemikir profesional yang berdedikasi dengan minat terhadap keuangan kuantitatif, ekonomi, matematika, fisika dan ilmu komputer, bukan Tentu dalam urutan itu. Blog Lihat buku blog Thalesians baru kami Beli buku baru kami. Perdagangan Thalesians - Apa yang dapat diajarkan dunia kuno tentang perdagangan hari ini (Palgrave Macmillan) oleh pendiri Thalesians, Saeed Amen amp pendahuluan oleh pendiri, Paul Bilokon Founding Kelompok ini didirikan pada bulan Sep 2008, oleh Paul Bilokon (seorang analis kuantitatif Di Lehman Brothers yang mengkhususkan diri dalam valuta asing, dan seorang peneliti paruh waktu di Imperial College), dan dua teman dan koleganya: Matthew Dixon (seorang analis kuantitatif di Deutsche Bank) dan Saeed Amen (kemudian seorang ahli strategi kuantitatif di Lehman Brothers) . Pembukaan Level39 pada tahun 2013 oleh Walikota Boris Johnson The Thalesians juga sekarang menjadi anggota akselerator teknologi Level39 - Europes terbesar untuk perusahaan teknologi keuangan, ritel, cyber-security dan masa depan di kota Events Research Consulting Events Thalesians awalnya berbasis di London, Inggris. . Pada bulan Januari 2011, organisasi tersebut menjadi benar-benar global ketika Matthew Dixon membawanya ke Amerika Serikat di mana dia menjalankan seminar NYC Thalesians dengan Pemimpin New York Harvey Stein. Attila Agod adalah Pemimpin Budapest untuk seminar Budapest Thalesians kami. Saat ini kami sedang dalam proses memperluas seminar kami ke Praha dan menjalankan lebih banyak lokakarya. Penelitian Pada akhir tahun 2013, kami mulai menerbitkan catatan strategi ground breaking quant. Upaya kami dipimpin oleh Saeed Amen, menggunakan hampir satu dekade pengalamannya menciptakan dan kemudian memperdagangkan model perdagangan sistematis di FX di bank investasi utama. Kunjungi Penelitian lebih lanjut. Konsultasi Pada tahun 2014, kami mulai menawarkan layanan konsultasi kuantitatif yang dipesan lebih dahulu di pasar, mendaftarkan klien pertama kami, hedge fund utama AS dan RavenPack, vendor data berita utama. Layanan kami mencakup pembuatan model perdagangan sistematis yang dipesan lebih dahulu dan analisis pasar keuangan lainnya, seperti hedging mata uang dan analisis biaya transaksi FX (TCA). Kunjungi Konsultasi lebih banyak. Filosofi Kami Kami dinamai Thales dari Miletus (), seorang filsuf Yunani pra-Sokrates yang tinggal di ca. 624 SM-ca. 546 SM. Thales adalah seorang matematikawan dan akrab bagi banyak siswa sekolah menengah atas salah satu teorema teorinya. Tapi yang lebih relevan dengan kami, dia adalah salah satu pengguna pilihan pertama: Thales, begitulah ceritanya, karena kemiskinannya diejek dengan ketidaksopanan filsafat tapi dari pengetahuan astronomi yang dia amati saat masih musim dingin di sana. Akan menghasilkan banyak buah zaitun, jadi dia mengumpulkan sejumlah kecil uang dan membayar simpanan bulat untuk keseluruhan tekanan zaitun di Miletus dan Chios, yang dia sewa dengan harga sewa rendah karena tidak ada yang mencabutnya dan kapan Musim tiba, tiba-tiba ada permintaan untuk sejumlah tekanan pada saat yang bersamaan, dan dengan membiarkan mereka mengetahui hal-hal yang dia sukai, dia menyadari sejumlah besar uang, jadi membuktikan bahwa mudah bagi filsuf untuk menjadi kaya jika mereka Pilih, tapi ini bukan yang mereka pedulikan. Aristoteles, Politik, 1259a. Semangat anekdot ini adalah bahwa mudah bagi filsuf untuk menjadi kaya jika mereka memilih Milesian yang terkenal pergi ke depan dan membuktikannya. Kami, Thalesians. Mengagumi dia untuk itu Tapi kita juga berbagi banyak nilai-nilainya, misalnya keyakinan intinya bahwa orang yang bahagia didefinisikan sebagai satu,, (siapa yang sehat dalam tubuh, kaya akan jiwa dan sifat yang mudah diajarkan). Wiki ini diciptakan untuk menjadi sumber informasi mengenai keuangan kuantitatif, untuk mengumpulkan referensi ke berbagai sumber terkait, dan berfungsi sebagai titik konvergensi untuk Thalesians. Rekan kerja dan kolaborator kami. Ini berkembang dari wiki keuangan Paul Bilokons, yang dimulai pada bulan Februari 2007. Kami percaya bahwa kerahasiaan dan kesetiaan penting di dunia keuangan. Tapi kami juga mengakui kekuatan berbagi informasi di masyarakat terbuka. Biarkan logika bisnis Anda tetap menjadi rahasia yang dijaga ketat. Tapi lepaskan semuanya ke domain publik. Apa yang terjadi di sekitar, datang sekitar ini pada akhirnya akan cadangan Anda menciptakan kembali roda.

Telah diketahui dengan baik bahwa faktor penyumbang terbesar terhadap pergerakan harga adalah ketidakseimbangan tawaran dan permintaan terbaik. Kami menyelidiki data dari tingkat-1 buku pesanan batas sekeranjang saham dan mempelajari bukti numerik drift, korelasi, volatilitas dan ketergantungan mereka pada ketidakseimbangan. Berdasarkan penemuan numerik, kami mengembangkan model diskrit nonparametrik untuk dinamika tawaran dan permintaan terbaik. Model ini dapat didekati dengan model bentuk tereduksi dengan tractability analisis yang sesuai dengan data empiris korelasi, volatilitas dan probabilitas pergerakan harga secara bersamaan.

Ruang 914, Pusat Kimmel, 60 Washington Square South, NY 10012, NY Pendaftaran Sinyal Alpha untuk strategi arbitrase statistik seringkali didorong oleh faktor laten. Makalah ini menganalisis bagaimana melakukan perdagangan dengan faktor laten yang menyebabkan harga melonjak dan menyebar. Selain itu, kami memperhitungkan efek dari tindakan pedagang pada harga yang dikutip dan harga yang mereka terima dari perdagangan. Dengan asumsi yang cukup umum, kami mendemonstrasikan bagaimana trader dapat mempelajari distribusi posterior di atas negara-negara laten, dan secara eksplisit memecahkan masalah perdagangan laten yang optimal secara online. Selanjutnya, kami mengembangkan algoritma maju ke belakang berdasarkan ekspektasi ekspektasi untuk mengkalibrasi model lompatan murni ke data historis, menggambarkan keefektifan strategi optimal melalui simulasi, dan dibandingkan dengan strategi yang mengabaikan pembelajaran dalam faktor laten.

Acara Terbaru Seminar IAQF-Thalesians (New York) 8212 Dr. Alan Moreira 8212 Volatilitas yang Dikelola Portofolio Rabu, 15 Februari 2017: Pusat Kimmel NYU. Kamar 914, Pusat Kimmel, 60 Washington Square South, NY 10012, NY Pendaftaran Dikelola portofolio yang mengambil risiko lebih kecil saat volatilitas menghasilkan alpha besar, meningkatkan rasio Sharpe, dan menghasilkan keuntungan utilitas yang besar untuk investor varians rata-rata. Kami mendokumentasikan ini untuk pasar, nilai, momentum, profitabilitas, return on equity, dan faktor investasi, serta mata uang yang melakukan perdagangan. Fluktuasi waktu meningkatkan rasio Sharpe karena perubahan volatilitas tidak diimbangi oleh perubahan proporsional dalam imbal hasil yang diharapkan. Strategi kami bertentangan dengan kebijaksanaan konvensional karena mengambil risiko yang relatif lebih kecil dalam resesi namun masih mendapatkan tingkat pengembalian rata-rata yang tinggi. Ini mengesampingkan penjelasan berbasis risiko yang khas dan merupakan tantangan bagi model struktural dari berbagai hasil yang diharapkan pada waktu. Alan Moreira adalah Asisten Profesor Keuangan di Sekolah Manajemen Universitas Yale. Berasal dari Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, ia menerima gelar sarjana dari Universitas Federal Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) dan gelar PhD di bidang Ekonomi Keuangan dari University of Chicago.

Thalesians Seminar (London) 8212 Oskar Mencer 8212 Perhitungan Resiko Aliran Data Multiscale pada Tanggal dan Waktu Hybrid Cloud 7:30 p.m. Pada hari Rabu 25 Januari 2017 Pendaftaran Volatilitas seketika pengembalian logaritmik dalam model SABR fraksional lognormal didorong oleh eksponensiasi gerakan Brownional pecahan yang berkorelasi. Karena sifat campuran mengemudi gerakan Brownian dan fraksional Brown, kepadatan probabilitas untuk model semacam itu kurang dikenal dalam literatur. Kami hadir dalam pembicaraan ini sebagai representasi jembatan untuk kerapatan sendi model SABR fraksional lognormal di ruang Fourier. Mengevaluasi representasi jembatan sepanjang jalur deterministik yang dipilih dengan tepat menghasilkan gaya ekspansi Edgeworth terhadap kepadatan probabilitas untuk model SABR fraksional. Sebuah generalisasi langsung representasi ke kerapatan sendi pada beberapa kali mengarah pada derivasi heuristik dari prinsip penyimpangan besar untuk kerapatan sendi dalam waktu kecil. Perkiraan volatilitas tersirat mudah diperoleh dengan menerapkan formula asimtotik Laplace pada panggilan atau menempatkan harga dan membandingkan koefisien. Presentasi ini didasarkan pada kerja sama dengan Jiro Akahori dan Xiaoming Song. Tai-Ho Wang memegang jabatan profesor matematika di Baruch College, City University of New York sejak tahun 2012. Penelitiannya di bidang keuangan kuantitatif mencakup ketidakstabilan volatilitas seketika dalam waktu kecil, batas bebas arbitrase bebas pada opsi keranjang, likuidasi dan pelaksanaan optimal dalam model dampak pasar , Dan baru-baru ini dinamika informasi di pasar keuangan.

Seminar IAEA-Thalesians (New York) 8212 Dr. Hongzhong Zhang 8212 Pembuatan Pasar Intraday dengan Biaya Persediaan dalam semalam Kamis, 14 Desember 2016: NYU Kimmel Center. Ruang 914, Pusat Kimmel, 60 Washington Square South, NY 10012, NY Pendaftaran Pangsa pembuatan pasar yang dilakukan oleh perusahaan dengan frekuensi tinggi (HFT) terus meningkat. Fitur yang membedakan dari HFT adalah bahwa mereka melakukan perdagangan intraday, mengakhiri hari dengan datar. Untuk menjelaskan ekonomi HFTs, dan dalam penyesalan dari teori pembuatan pasar yang ada, kami membuat model HFT yang memiliki akses ke intraday tanpa batas, namun harus mendanai inventaris akhir hari dengan biaya yang ditentukan secara eksogen. Meskipun biaya persediaan hanya terjadi pada akhir hari, namun dampaknya terhadap harga intraday dan dinamika likuiditas. Hal ini menimbulkan mekanisme dampak harga endogen intraday. Seiring waktu mendekati akhir hari perdagangan, kepekaan harga terhadap tingkat persediaan meningkat, membuat dampak harga lebih kuat dan memperlebar spread bid-ask. Selain itu, ketidakseimbangan pesanan beli dan jual dapat mengkatalisis kenaikan dan penurunan harga, bahkan di bawah fungsi penawaran dan permintaan tetap. Secara empiris, kami menunjukkan bahwa prediksi ini ditanggung di pasar Treasury A.S., di mana spread bid-ask dan dampak harga cenderung meningkat menjelang akhir hari. Selanjutnya, pergerakan harga berkorelasi negatif dengan perubahan tingkat persediaan yang diukur dengan volume perdagangan bersih kumulatif. (Kerja sama dengan Tobias Adrian, Agostino Capponi, dan Erik Vogt) Hongzhong Zhang adalah asisten profesor di Universitas Columbia.

Pada hari Senin 12 Desember 2016 Ruang Jahe, diikuti oleh minuman amp canapes di GampTea Bar, Hotel Marriott, Canary Wharf, London, Inggris, Meetup Pada bulan Mei 2016 tercatat, di hadirat QampA setelah presentasi oleh pembicara, bahwa GBPUSD risk reversals Menunjukkan perilaku yang sangat tidak biasa - yaitu, condong ekstrim dengan tenor bertanggal pendek namun senyumnya relatif datar setelahnya. Ini adalah tanda tangan volatilitas yang paling tidak biasa dan hubungannya dengan pemungutan suara referendum Brexit segera dilakukan. Pembicara, sebagai masalah urgensi mengingat sifat topikal pasar pra-Brexit, melakukan analisis dengan rekan penulisnya mengenai distribusi tersirat untuk ekspektasi pasar GBPUSD sekitar tanggal referendum (23 Juni 2016), dengan prediksi untuk spot kemudian. Makalah tersebut diupload ke SSRN (ssrnabstract2794888) pada tanggal 13 Juni, di mana kami mengidentifikasi bukti empiris dalam ketidakstabilan condong untuk penurunan GBPUSD dari 1,4390 ke kisaran 1,10 menjadi 1,30 pada saat voting Biarkan - pergerakan turun 0,14 ke 0,34. Analisis tersebut, yang luar biasa untuk penelitian kuantitatif, mendapat liputan di FT dan Sunday Telegraph dan prediksi kami dipastikan saat hasil referendum diumumkan dan sterling turun dari 1,50 menjadi 1,33 - pergerakan turun 0,17 - dalam hitungan jam. Setelah analisis ini, kami menerapkan metode serupa pada peso Meksiko yang dikutip versus dolar AS (USDMXN) segera sebelum pemilihan AS 2016 dan kami dapat memprediksi devaluasi peso ke dalam kisaran 20-24 peso per dolar jika terjadi Kemenangan Trump, yang ditanggung oleh kejadian selanjutnya. Dalam pembicaraan ini saya akan membahas analisis informasi yang tertanam dalam ketidakstabilan dan dasar analisis prediktif kami. Iain J.

Thalesians Seminar (London) 8212 Vlasios Voudouris 8212 Pembelajaran mesin fleksibel untuk keuangan Tanggal dan Waktu 7:30 malam Pada hari Rabu tanggal 23 November 2016 Ginger Room, Marriott Hotel, Canary Wharf, London, Inggris. Meetup Dengan perubahan teknologi komputasi yang pesat dan usia data yang besar, bidang ilmu data terus ditantang. Data ilmuwan pekerjaan adalah untuk memahami sejumlah besar data: untuk mengekstrak pola dan tren penting, dan memahami apa kata data. Tantangan dalam belajar dari data telah menghasilkan sebuah revolusi dalam teknik pembelajaran mesin. Serangkaian perangkat GAMLSS dalam upaya kami untuk belajar dari data keuangan. GAMLSS sekarang banyak digunakan untuk analisis prediktif dan kuantifikasi risiko (misalnya kerugian yang diberikan pada standar). Karena fleksibilitas model GAMLSS, kita dapat menangkap karakteristik data berikut: Karakteristik berekor ekor atau ekor ringan dari distribusi data. Ini berarti bahwa probabilitas kejadian langka (misalnya nilai outlier) terjadi dengan probabilitas yang lebih tinggi atau lebih rendah dibandingkan dengan distribusi normal. Selanjutnya, probabilitas terjadinya nilai outlier bisa berubah sebagai fungsi dari nilai penjelas. Skewness dari variabel respon, yang mungkin berubah sebagai fungsi dari variabel penjelas. Hubungan nonlinier atau kelancaran antara variabel target dan variabel explanatorypredictor. Berdasarkan buku Fleksibel Regresi dan Penghapusan: Menggunakan GAMLSS di R, ceramah tersebut mencakup sejumlah besar contoh praktis (misalnya prediksi dan kuantifikasi risiko) yang mencerminkan berbagai masalah yang ditangani oleh model GAMLSS. Ini juga berarti bahwa contoh tersebut memberikan ilustrasi praktis tentang proses penggunaan model GAMLSS untuk pembelajaran mesin. Vlasios Voudouris adalah Ilmu Data yang memiliki keahlian dalam analisis prediksi berbasis data dan kuantifikasi risiko pasar keuangan. Fokus penelitian utamanya adalah pada model pembelajaran mesin semi-parametrik ii) proses pemilihan model yang inovatif dan iii) diagnostik yang kuat untuk perdagangan sistematis dan kuantifikasi risiko. Dia adalah co-author dari buku Flexible Regression and Smoothing: Menggunakan GAMLSS di R dan perangkat lunak terkait di R dan Java. GAMLSS (Model Generalized Additive untuk Skala Lokasi dan Bentuk) adalah tentang belajar dari data yang menggunakan algoritma pembelajaran mesin semi-parametrik yang diawasi. Selanjutnya, Vlasios mengembangkan model berbasis agen berbasis data untuk skenario pengujian stres (dengan penekanan pada pasar komoditas). Model dan alatnya digunakan oleh berbagai organisasi. Dengan dua contoh spesifik: 1) IMF menggunakan GAMLSS untuk menguji stres Sistem Keuangan A.S. 2) Vlasios dan rekan-rekannya menunjukkan serangkaian model GAMLSS untuk Bank of England (BoE). Dengan menggunakan GAMLSS, Vlasios mengembangkan model perdagangan sistematis untuk WTI Crude Oil (NYMEX). Vlasios meraih gelar Ph.D. Dari Kota, Universitas London. Seminar IAQF-Thalesians (New York) 8212 Dr. Michael Imerman 8212 Wawasan dari Analisis Risiko Volatilitas Berbasis Data Kamis, 17 November 2016: NYU Kimmel Center. Ruang 914, Pusat Kimmel, 60 Washington Square South, NY 10012, NY Pendaftaran Sebagian besar pembicaraan ini akan datang dari kerja sama yang saya lakukan dengan Fan Jianqing di Princeton dan Wei Dai sekarang di Dimensional Fund Advisors. Kami menetapkan untuk menyediakan analisis premium volatilitas risiko murni, menggunakan alat dari analisis frekuensi tinggi dan analisis Big Data. Kami berpendapat bahwa premi risiko volatilitas, yang didefinisikan secara longgar sebagai perbedaan antara volatilitas terwujud dan tersirat, paling baik dipahami bila dipandang sebagai bias harga secara sistematis. Kami pertama kali menggunakan data transaksi frekuensi ultra tinggi pada SPDR dan pendekatan baru untuk memperkirakan volatilitas terpadu pada domain frekuensi untuk menghitung volatilitas yang terealisasi. Dari situ kita mengurangi VIX harian, ukuran volatilitas tersirat kita, untuk membangun rangkaian risiko premi volatilitas. Untuk mengidentifikasi faktor-faktor di balik risiko volatilitas premium sebagai bias harga, kita menguraikannya menjadi besar dan tajam. Kami menemukan bukti kuat bahwa besarnya deviasi volatilitas yang terealisasi dari volatilitas tersirat merupakan ketidakseimbangan penawaran dan permintaan di pasar untuk melindungi risiko ekor lindung nilai. Sulit untuk secara meyakinkan menerima hipotesis bahwa arah atau tanda dari premi risiko volatilitas mencerminkan harapan tentang tingkat volatilitas di masa depan. Namun, bukti mendukung hipotesis bahwa tanda premi risiko volatilitas menunjukkan keuntungan atau kerugian pada portofolio delta-hedging yang sesuai dengan Bakshi dan Kapadia (2003). Sebagai seseorang yang berasal dari latar belakang pemodelan keuangan, namun telah mengembangkan kecenderungan ilmu pengetahuan dan analisis data, saya akan meluangkan waktu di akhir ceramah saya mengenai pemikiran saya tentang bagaimana ilmu data dipeluk (dalam beberapa hal, dan dihindari Pada orang lain) oleh komunitas keuangan kuantitatif.

Untuk mengukur varians istilah premium, kami memperkirakan model struktur-dinamik dinamis yang harganya bervariasi di seluruh AS, Inggris, Eropa, dan Jepang. Model tersebut menguraikan kurva swap varians menjadi struktur risiko premia dan jumlah risiko yang diharapkan. Secara empiris, kami mendokumentasikan struktur faktor kuat dalam tingkat swap varians global dan menemukan bahwa varians premia berkorelasi negatif dengan kekayaan sektor perantara keuangan. Hasil kami mendukung hipotesis bahwa perantara keuangan adalah investor marjinal di pasar swap varians.

IAQF-Thalesians Seminar (New York) 8212 Dr. Tobias Adrian 8212 Nonlinearity and Flight-to-Safety in the Risk-Return Tradeoff for Stocks and Bonds Thursday, June 16, 2015: NYU Kimmel Center. Room 905907, Kimmel Center, 60 Washington Square South, NY 10012, NY Registration We document a highly significant, strongly nonlinear dependence of stock and bond returns on past equity-market volatility as measured by the VIX. We propose a new estimator for the shape of the nonlinear forecasting relationship that exploits additional variation in the cross section of returns. The nonlinearities are mirror images for stocks and bonds, revealing flight to safety: Expected returns increase for stocks when volatility increases from moderate to high levels, while they decline for Treasuries. We further demonstrate that these findings are evidence of dynamic asset pricing theories where the time variation of the price of risk is a function of the level of the VIX. Tobias Adrian is a Senior Vice President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the Associate Director of Research and Statistics Group. His research covers asset pricing, financial intermediation, and macroeconomics, with a focus on the aggregate implications of capital market developments.

ThalesiansQuant Finance Group Germany (Frankfurt) 8212 Thomas Wiecki 8212 Predicting out-of-sample performance and building multi-strategy portfolios using Random Forests Date and Time 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday 11th May 2016 PPI AG Office, Wilhelm-Leuschner-Strae 79, Frankfurt Am Main Meetup FREE event, kindly hosted by PPI Thanks for Jochen Papenbrock and Adrian Zymolka for organising and for PPI for hosting. The question of how predictive a backtest is of out-of-sample performance is at the heart of algorithmic trading. Using a unique dataset of 888 algorithmic trading strategies developed and backtested on the Quantopian platform with at least 6 months of out-of-sample performance, we study the prevalence and impact of backtest overfitting. Specifically, we find that commonly reported backtest evaluation metrics like the Sharpe ratio offer little value in predicting out of sample performance (R lt 0.025). However, we show that by training a Random Forest regressor on a variety of features that describe backtest behavior, out-of-sample performance can be predicted at a much higher accuracy (R 0.17) on hold-out data compared to using linear, univariate features. We then show that we can construct a multi-strategy portfolio based on predictions by the Random Forest which performed significantly better out-of-sample than other alternatives. Thomas Wiecki is the Data Science Lead at Quantopian focusing Bayesian models to evaluate trading algorithms. Previously, he was a Quantitative Researcher at Quantopian developing an open-source trading simulator as well as optimization methods for trading algorithms.

Glosten 8212 Strategic Foundation for the Tail Expectation in Limit Order Book Markets Thursday, April 14, 2015: NYU Kimmel Center. Room 914, Kimmel Center, 60 Washington Square South, NY 10012, NY Registration We analyze the strategic interactions of liquidity suppliers quoting on a limit order book. In an environment with noise traders and informed traders trading on news we show that there is an equilibrium that feature quoters using mixed strategies each offering the same quantity of shares at random prices (and, of course, random bid prices). These random prices with the associated quantities form the market quotes and the depth of book, or price schedule. There are equilibria with a smaller number of quoters quoting a larger number of shares and equilibria with a larger number of quoters quoting a smaller number of shares. Considering a sequence of equilibria with the number of quoters getting large, we establish that the stochastic equilibrium price schedule converges to the zero profit deterministic competitive price schedule. An offer (or bid) is characterized as the expectation of the future value conditional on the offer being picked off by a larger buy (or sell) order. Lawrence R. Glosten is the S. Sloan Colt Professor of Banking and International Finance at Columbia Business School. He is also co-director (with Merritt Fox and Ed Greene) of the Program in the Law and Economics of Capital Markets at Columbia Law School and Columbia Business School and is an adjunct faculty member at the Law School.

Thalesians Seminar (London) 8212 Robin Hanson 8212 Economics when robots rule the Earth (Book) Date and Time 7:30 p.m. on Monday, 21 March, 2016 Level39, One Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London, E14, UK Meetup FREE event - kindly sponsored by the Level39 - fintech accelerator - level39.co Full title: The Age of Em: Work, Love and Life when Robots Rule the Earth (Amazon pre-order book here ) Robots may one day rule the world, but what is a robot-ruled Earth like Many think the first truly smart robots will be brain emulations or ems. Scan a human brain, then run a model with the same connections on a fast computer, and you have a robot brain, but recognizably human. Train an em to do some job and copy it a million times: an army of workers is at your disposal. When they can be made cheaply, within perhaps a century, ems will displace humans in most jobs. In this new economic era, the world economy may double in size every few weeks. Some say we cant know the future, especially following such a disruptive new technology, but Professor Robin Hanson sets out to prove them wrong. Applying decades of expertise in physics, computer science, and economics, he uses standard theories to paint a detailed picture of a world dominated by ems. While human lives dont change greatly in the em era, em lives are as different from ours as our lives are from those of our farmer and forager ancestors. Ems make us question common assumptions of moral progress, because they reject many of the values we hold dear. Read about em mind speeds, body sizes, job training and career paths, energy use and cooling infrastructure, virtual reality, aging and retirement, death and immortality, security, wealth inequality, religion, teleportation, identity, cities, politics, law, war, status, friendship and love. This book shows you just how strange your descendants may be, though ems are no stranger than we would appear to our ancestors. To most ems, it seems good to be an em. Robin Dale Hanson is an associate professor of economics at George Mason University and a research associate at the Future of Humanity Institute of Oxford University. He is known as an expert on idea futures and markets, and he was involved in the creation of the Foresight Exchange and DARPAs FutureMAP project.

Room 914, Kimmel Center, 60 Washington Square South, NY 10012, NY Registration A modern version of Monetary Circuit Theory with a particular emphasis on stochastic underpinning mechanisms is developed. It is explained how money is created by the banking system as a whole and by individual banks. The role of central banks as system stabilizers and liquidity providers is elucidated. Both the Chicago Plan and the Free Banking Proposal are discussed. It is shown how in the process of money creation, banks become naturally interconnected. A novel Extended Structural Default Model describing the stability of the Interconnected Banking Network is proposed. The purpose of bank capital and liquidity is explained. A multi-period constrained optimization problem for a banks balance sheet is formulated and solved in a simple case. Both theoretical and practical aspects are covered.

Thalesians Seminar (London) 8212 Nick Firoozye 8212 Managing Uncertainty, Mitigating Risk (Book) Date and Time 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, 20 January, 2016 Ginger Room, Marriott Hotel, Canary Wharf, London, UK. Meetup Financial risk management started in a period when academic finance was wedded to probability. Risk and its transferability was the focus and uncertainty was sidelined. After the recent financial crisis, uncertainty and its consequences have become a major concern for many prominent academics, yet practitioners are constrained by probability-based tools and regulatory mandates. Managing Uncertainty, Mitigating Risk offers a liberated perspective on uncertainty in banking and finance. The book stresses that uncertainty must be confronted by using a broader range of inputs, employing methods outside conventional probability. More often than not, systemic risks are not completely unforeseeable and a range of likely risk scenarios can be fleshed out, quantified and largely mitigated. We can accomplish this only if we widen our knowledgebase to include qualitative data and judgment. Probability and historical data alone cannot sufficiently model game-changing and catastrophic one-off situations such as Eurozone exit and breakup, US debt ceiling, and Brexit. This book presents a robust foundation and a novel and practical method for incorporating uncertainty into existing risk frameworks. It takes the reader beyond the realms of probability in modern finance, into imprecise probability the mathematics of uncertainty. We introduce uncertain value-at-risk (UVaR), a measure which takes the VaR engine and enhances it using credal nets, an imprecise extension of Bayesian nets. Unlike the unjustified precision of probability-based models, UVaR helps to assesses uncertainty by incorporating expert insight through priors, with more extensive datasets. By combining a solid quantitative method with an implementation framework and cases, this book allows the reader to not only understand the solution for managing uncertain one-offs, but also to see the end-product. This is a starting point for risk practitioners to go beyond regulatory-initiated tools in order to employ their own approaches towards recognizing and managing uncertainty. Nick Firoozye is a Managing Director at Nomura International and heads a global team in cross-product derivatives research. He has many years of experience in a variety of research and trading roles in both buy-side and sell-side firms including Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Citadel, Sanford Bernstein and Lehman Brothers. Known for his work in Quantitative Strategy, Nicks area of expertise ranges from asset allocation models and macro-financial forecasting to systematic and RV trading. Previously, he was Head of European Rates Strategy, and covered the Eurozone crisis, rescue packages and possible break-up, working closely with the risk management and legal teams. Dr Firoozye was an Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois, and holds a PhD in Applied Mathematics from Courant Institute, New York University. He speaks and writes frequently on financial markets and economics issues. His team was recently awarded Global Capitals Derivatives Research House of 2015, and he was co-author of one of five papers shortlisted for the 2012 Wolfson Economics Prize on the breakup of the Eurozone. IAQF-Thalesians Seminar (New York) 8212 Dr. Nick Costanzino 8212 Pricing and Hedging Recovery Risk with Structural and Reduced Form Models Tuesday, January 12, 2015: NYU Kimmel Center. Room 914, Kimmel Center, 60 Washington Square South, NY 10012, NY Registration The fixed-income literature attempts to explain credit spreads though a decomposition into different risk premia. The most commonly analyzed risk premia are default and liquidity risk. Recovery risk has not received much attention most likely because of the pervasive practice of assuming constant recovery in most credit models. However, assuming a constant recovery has two major effects. The first is we have inconsistent pricing (if recovery is a known constant, what is the price of a recovery swap) and the second is over- or underpricing the default risk portion of the credit spread. In this talk I will present recent work on isolating the recovery risk premium in corporate bond and CDS spreads using both structural and hazard rate models. This allows us to isolate the recovery risk premium from the default risk premium, as well as provide a consistent pricing framework for all recovery linked products including bonds, CDS and recovery swaps. Finally, we discuss some trading opportunities that can be exploited using framework. Nick Costanzino received his PhD in Applied Mathematics in 2006 from Brown University in Providence R.I. His thesis combined tools from pseudodifferential operators and dynamical systems to prove multidimensional stability of certain nonlinear wave structures in fluids. He later moved to the Penn State University Math Department as a Chowla Assistant Professor where he was introduced to quantitative finance and helped developed their Mathematical Finance program. After a brief tenure at Wilfrid Laurier University in Canada he then moved to the finance industry working in various credit roles including risk manager for the CDS and corporate bond trading desk at Scotiabank. He is interested in all areas of quantitative finance, but particularly those which lead to improvements in understanding the credit and equity markets. Nick is currently in the Investment Analytics group at AIG in New York and is a member of RiskLab at the University of Toronto.

External (London) 8212 International Conference on Computational Finance (ICCF2015) University of Greenwich Date and Time Registration We present a liquidity factor IML, the return on illiquid-minus-liquid stock portfolios. The IML, adjusted for the common risk factors, measures the illiquidity premium whose annual alpha is about 4 over the period 1950-2012. I then test whether the systematic risk () of IML is priced in a multi-factor CAPM. The model allows for a conditional of IML that rises with observable funding illiquidity and adverse market conditions. The conditional IML is positively and significantly priced, and remains so after controlling for the beta of illiquidity shocks.

Some financial firms are beginning to apply these techniques to market data and other information important for trading and investing. But training DNNs (that is, setting them to work to develop models) is extremely compute intensive. In this talk, Matthew will describe a DNN model for predicting price movements from time series data, then explain techniques that enable this model to exploit the parallel computing capacity of the Intel Xeon Phi processor in conjunction with multi-core CPUs. Matthew Dixon is a Managing Director and Head of Americas at Thalesians Ltd. He is also an Assistant Professor of Finance in the Stuart Business School at the Illinois Institute of Technology. His research focuses on the application of advanced computational techniques to financial modeling and data analysis especially where high performance and scalability are critical for practical application. Matthews research is currently funded by Intel Corporation. He has contributed to the R package repository and published around twenty peer-reviewed technical articles. He has taught financial econometrics, derivatives, machine learning and text mining at the University of San Francisco and held visiting appointments in CSMath at Stanford University and UC Davis. Prior to joining academia, he has held industry appointments as a quant at banks such as Lehman Brothers, the Bank for International Settlements and Barclays Capital. He chairs the workshop on computational finance at the annual SuperComputing conference and serves on the program committee of HPC and on the editorial board of the Journal of Financial Innovation.

Thalesians Panel (London) 8212 CudmoreBurroughs amp more 8212 Global macro panel Registration The structural default model of Lipton and Sepp, 2009 is generalized for a set of banks with mutual interbank liabilities whose assets are driven by correlated Levy processes with idiosyncratic and common components. The multi-dimensional problem is made tractable via a novel computational method, which generalizes the one-dimensional fractional partial differential equation method of Itkin, 2014 to the two- and three-dimensional cases. This method is unconditionally stable and of the second order of approximation in space and time in addition, for many popular Levy models it has linear complexity in each dimension. Marginal and joint survival probabilities for two and three banks with mutual liabilities are computed. The effects of mutual liabilities are discussed, and numerical examples are given to illustrate these effects. Dr. Andrey Itkin is an Adjunct Professor at NYU, Department of Risk and Financial Engineering and Director, Senior Research Associate at Bank of America. He received his PhD in physics of liquids, gases and plasma, and degree of Doctor of Science in computational molecular physics. During his academic carrier he published few books and multiple papers on chemical and theoretical physics and astrophysics, and later on computational and mathematical finance. Andrey occupied various research and managerial positions in financial industry and also is a member of multiple professional associations in finance and physics.

Thalesians Seminar (London) 8212 Robert Carver 8212 Lessons from Systematic Trading Date and Time 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, 21 October, 2015 Ginger Room, Marriott Hotel, Canary Wharf, London, UK. Meetup Its my belief that successful systematic trading is not about finding some deep hidden source of alpha, but about avoiding stupid mistakes. In this talk I share some of the mistakes Ive made, and seen others make, whilst designing and managing systematic trading systems for both a multi billion hedge fund and a retail trading account. This is a wide ranging talk which provocatively questions many commonly held beliefs about the business of managing money systematically. Robert Carver is an independent systematic trader, and writer. He trades his own capital with a fully automated system of 40 futures markets, using a proprietary system written in python. Robert is the author of Systematic Trading, a forthcoming book to be published by Harriman House in October 2015. He regularly blogs on the subject of trading, finance and investment. Robert, who has bachelors and masters degrees in Economics, began his city career trading exotic derivative products for Barclays Capital. He then worked as a portfolio manager for AHL. one of the worlds largest systematic hedge funds before, during and after the global financial meltdown of 2008. Robert was responsible for the creation of AHLs fundamental cross asset global macro strategy, and then managed the funds multi billion dollar fixed income portfolio. He retired from the industry in 2013. IAQF-Thalesians Seminar (New York) 8212 Dr. Dan Pirjol 8212 Can one price Eurodollar futures in the Black-Derman-Toy model Wednesday, October 14, 2015: NYU Kimmel Center. Room 914, Kimmel Center, 60 Washington Square South, NY 10012, NY Registration Interest rates models with log-normally distributed rates in continuous time are known to display singular behavior. For example, Eurodollar futures prices are infinite in the Dothan and Black-Karasinski models, as shown in 1998 by Hogan and Weintraub. These singularities are usually assumed to disappear when the models are simulated in discrete time. Using a precise simulation of the BDT model, we demonstrate that this is true only for sufficiently low volatilities. Eurodollar futures prices explode for volatilities above a critical value. The explosion is due to contributions from a region in state space which corresponds to very large interest rates and is truncated off in usual simulation methods such as trees and finite difference methods. In the limit of a very small simulation time step the explosion appears for any volatility, and reproduces the Hogan-Weintraub singularity of the continuous time model. Dan Pirjol works in the Model Risk Group at JP Morgan, covering valuation models in commodities. Previously he was with Markit and Merrill Lynch in various roles in modeling and model risk, after doing research in theoretical high energy physics. He is interested in applications of methods from mathematical physics and probability to problems in mathematical finance.

IAQF-Thalesians Seminar (New York) 8212 Dr. Agostino Capponi 8212 Arbitrage-Free Pricing of XVA Monday, September 21, 2015: NYU Kimmel Center. Room 914, Kimmel Center, 60 Washington Square South, NY 10012, NY Registration The recent financial crisis has highlighted the importance to account for counterparty risk and funding costs in the valuation of over-the-counter portfolios of derivatives. When managing their portfolios, traders face costs for maintaining the hedge of the position, posting collateral resources, and servicing their collateral requests. Due to the interdependencies between these operations, such costs cannot be separated and attributed to different business units (CVA, DVA and FVA desks). In this talk, we introduce a unified framework for computing the total costs, referred to as XVA, of an European style derivative transaction traded between two risky counterparties. We use no-arbitrage arguments to derive the nonlinear backward stochastic differential equations (BSDEs) associated with the portfolios which replicate long and short positions in the claim. This leads to defining buyers and sellers XVAs which in turn identify a no-arbitrage band. When borrowing and lending rates coincide, our framework recovers a generalized version of Piterbargs model. In this case, we provide a fully explicit expression for the uniquely determined price of XVA. When they differ, we derive the semi-linear partial differential equations (PDEs) associated with the non-linear BSDEs and show that they admit a unique classical solution. We use these solutions to conduct a numerical analysis showing high sensitivity of the no-arbitrage band and replicating strategies to funding spreads and collateral levels. Agostino Capponi is an assistant professor in the IEOR Department at Columbia University, where he is also a member of the Institute for Data Science and Engineering. Agostino received his Master and Ph.D. Degree in Computer Science and Applied and Computational Mathematics from the California Institute of Technology, respectively in 2006 and 2009. His main research interests are in the area of networks, with a special focus on systemic risk, contagion, and control. In the context of financial networks, the outcome of his research contributes to a better understanding of risk management practices, and to assess the impact of regulatory policies aimed at controlling financial markets. He has been awarded a grant from the Institute for New Economic Thinking for his research on dynamic contagion mechanisms. His work on systemic risk dynamics under central clearing done in collaboration with the Department of Treasury has obtained press coverage from major organizations such as Bloomberg and Reuters. His research has been published in top-tier journals of Financial Mathematics, Operations Research, and Engineering. His work has also been published in leading practitioner journals and invited book chapters. Agostino holds a world patent for a target tracking methodology in military networks.
