14th FINANCIAL RISKS INTERNATIONAL FORUM
Online event, March 25 & 26, 2021
The Institut Louis Bachelier, in cooperation with the Fondation du Risque, the Europlace Institute of Finance and the Louis Bachelier "Finance and Sustainable Growth" Laboratory, is pleased to invite you to the 14th Financial Risks International Forum.
This upcoming 14th edition of the conference will enjoy a special format !
In these circumstances marked by the Covid-19 crisis, the Financial Risks International Forum will exceptionally be held in a virtual format. In the current context, this year's forum will focus on two themes :
« Fintechs » & « Covid-19, Learning from a Pandemic Crisis? »
Digitalization is reshaping economic and financial activities. Start-ups and technology firms are disrupting conventional banks and insurance companies by introducing new forms of payment (mobile, peer-to-peer), money (crypto and digital currencies), lending (peer-to-peer, crowdfunding) and advice (digital and robo). Advances in computing have enabled the use of new datasets (such as online consumer transactions, social networks or satellite images) and forecasting techniques, with extensive use of machine/deep learning techniques. These technological changes can deliver significant benefits to financial services. Network platforms simplify business and clients’ interactions, but they also modify the competitive landscape, give rise to new risks for borrowers, consumers and investors, and potentially challenge financial stability.
« Covid-19, Learning from a Pandemic Crisis? » :
Hundreds of papers on the analysis of pandemic risk and its effects on the economy or the finance and insurance sector, have been published in 2020 in paper series such as COVIDECON, or in special issues of economic, financial and statistical journals. What can we learn from this literature to improve the standard behavioral, predictive, and pricing models used in finance, default analysis, or for the design of insurance contracts?
