The next Business School Seminar will be hosted by the Finance Group from Liverpool University Management School at their splendid facilities in Finsbury Square, London on Friday November 30th. We are delighted to welcome Liverpool as Seminar partners.

The conference will see researchers from Liverpool and other top institutions share some of their latest thinking about asset pricing with a focus on valuation, predictability and financial technology (FinTech). In particular we will have presentations on:

The presentations will be complemented by a panel discussion on The Future of Asset Management, giving us the opportunity to discuss with academics how artificial intelligence, machine learning, robo-advising, and blockchain might alter the competitive landscape and techniques in asset management.
