Department of Mathematics brings FIPS 2018 to King's

Posted on 25/09/2018

The eighth Workshop on Finance, Insurance, Probability and Statistics (FIPS 2018) was held in the Department of Mathematics in September, bringing together a global cast of leading academic experts, practitioners and junior researchers. Attendees shared research that underscored the contributions of probability and statistics to the development of quantitative models, methods, techniques and technologies in the fields of finance and insurance.

The two-day workshop had three primary goals:

  • To highlight the role of statistics and data analysis in modeling and understanding transaction and event driven issues in finance and insurance.
  • To extend the discussion of application areas to include the insurance industry and the practice of risk management.
  • To sharpen the focus on areas that align with the interests of practitioners and to incorporate the contributions of research done by practitioners.

The event hosted some of the world’s foremost mathematicians in the areas of finance and insurance to unify the theoretical underpinnings of the two industries. It also saw significant new developments on risk management, statistical modelling and optimization in illiquid financial markets.

Organised by a cross-institutional team from King’s, Imperial College London, London School of Economics, Columbia University and CUHK, the workshop boasted speakers from institutions including: Ecole Polytechnique, UC Berkeley, Chennai Mathematical Institute, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Imperial College London and the University of Oxford.
