QuantCon 2016 Keynote Speaker Announced: Dr. Emanuel Derman

We are thrilled to announce Dr. Emanuel Derman will be our keynote speaker for QuantCon 2016!

Dr. Emanuel Derman, author of "My Life As A Quant" and "Models.Behaving.Badly: Why Confusing Illusion with Reality Can Lead to Disasters, On Wall Street and in Life" will present "Financial Engineering and Its Discontents" for our morning keynote. He will explore neoclassical finance and how its methods have become somewhat uncritically ingrained in the minds of quants. From mean-variance optimization to options theory to behavioral finance, Dr. Derman will discuss which of these ideas work better, and which don’t.

QuantCon will focus on innovative trading strategies, unique data sets, machine learning, and data science. The objective of the day is to give you all the support you need to craft outperforming strategies. To see the rest of our expert lineup, please click here.
