IÉSEG creates new research center dedicated to quantitative finance (iℚuant)
The School is pleased to announce the creation of a new research center dedicated to the field of quantitative finance (iℚuant). Led by Yann BRAOUEZEC, Professor of Finance at IÉSEG, the aim of iℚuant is to carry out and disseminate cutting-edge research activities in quantitative finance, which refers to use of different mathematical and statistical methods and techniques to analyze financial instruments.
A team of 8 international researchers are using such techniques to take forward their research activities in a wide range of areas including financial regulation, market liquidity, monetary policy, commodity markets or asset pricing.
Professor BRAOUEZEC explains: “The center will support these research activities but also support the dissemination of findings to different stakeholders.” Within the framework of iℚuant’s activities, researchers will organize research seminars for an academic audience and conferences to contribute to the dissemination of their work to different stakeholders (including professionals and policymakers).
“Iℚuant is dedicated to organizing events on important topical issues in quantitative finance”, adds Professor BRAOUEZEC. On the 22nd March on the Paris- La Défense campus. IℚUANT has therefore welcomed the Director of Research from the Banque de France in the framework of a conference on the macroeconomic impacts of climate change.
