MFSA, Triq l-Imdina, Zone 1 Central Business District, Birkirkara CBD 1010
The MFSA is once again joining forces with FinTech-ho-2020, to host a second workshop on Wednesday 20th November 2019 between 0900hrs and 1700hrs.
Following the first workshop which tackled the measurement of the risks associated with peer-to-peer lending, this second workshop will focus on the measurement of market risks and other risks related to robot advisory algorithmic trading, with the aim of improving their sustainability. FinTech-ho-2020 are developing social network models, which are AI-explainable and can capture the networking component arising from the large number of financial assets being traded and invested together, hence improving the predictive performance and reducing market portfolio risks for the users.
The objectives of this workshop are to:
- explore the interrelation between AI, Market Risk and Robo Advisory;
- present and discuss the underpinnings of a use case and the ways that such models can be used in the increasingly technology-driven financial market landscape.
FinTechs, traders, traditional financial industry players, academics and other parties interested in leveraging on such predictive research efforts, ideally with a background in statistics, econometrics, finance and/or AI, are invited to attend this workshop.
