BACKGROUND

The Evolving Landscape of Financial Markets:

Change is the most unchanging paradigm. Shortening of the Technology Cycle and disruptive technologies impact the Financial Markets. Then Financial Markets are the most alluring ‘Gambling Joints’ of this world. Markets in multiple geographies attract the community of avid ‘Gamblers’, namely, the Traders.In this conference we address some of the innovations and technologies which affect the many participants of the Financial Markets.

1. DATA SCIENCE and AI have brought new challenges to the Analysts and Fund Managers.
2. Mathematical Models of Options and Derivatives were harnessed in the innovation of ‘VIX’, also known as the ‘Fear Index’.
3. The ECNs and complex event processing engines have culminated in a multitude of Trading Platforms.

This conference is built around three themes:

  • Alternative Data: Where are we Heading
  • VIX story: Then and Now
  • Trading Platforms: Why and What

Volatility is an inevitable part of financial markets. But over the past six decades, volatility has come to dominate risk-management models across the finance industry. At the same time, a motley crew of academics and investment bankers have turned volatility itself into something that can be sliced and diced, bought and sold, just like any bond, stock or barrel of oil. This has arguably made the global financial system more fragile in the process. Here is the story of how volatility became a virus that infected the entire finance industry.

Harnessing non-traditional data sources to generate alpha, analyze markets, and forecast risk is a subject of intense interest for financial professionals. A growing number of regularly-held conferences on alternative data are being established, complemented by an upsurge in new papers on the subject. Alternative data is starting to be steadily incorporated by conventional institutional investors and risk managers throughout the financial world. Methodologies to analyze and extract value from alternative data, guidance on how to source data and integrate data flows within existing systems is currently not treated in literature. Filling this significant gap in knowledge, The Book of Alternative Data is the first and only book to offer a coherent, systematic treatment of the subject.
