Description

Jack D. Schwager, Paul Wilmott, Kent Osband, Aaron Brown and Patrick S. Hagan debate the question, Is Finance the sickness or the cure? Physicians live by the motto, "First, do no harm." Can the finance community on balance make the same claim?

  • Has finance theory and practice helped solve problems or has it done more harm than good?
  • Can hedge funds provide any true alpha?

This video, one of six from the Wiley WILMOTT Summit on Risk and Quantitative Modeling in Finance, held on the 11th December 2012 at Columbia University, New York feature the presentations from thought leaders and industry experts aiming to draw together some of the lessons of the last decade in order to restate the discipline’s fundamental role in driving the future success of the global market economy.

This is the time to define what quantitative finance really means beyond the fallout of the global financial crisis and to identify the technology and techniques that will power innovation and growth.
