In addition to sponsoring of academic research Inquire Europe organizes bi-annual seminars for its members. The spring seminar 2023 will be organized in Malta: 26 – 28 March 2023. A major part of the seminar will be devoted to:
“Quant investing in the recent crises”
Shortly after Covid hit the world, Europe again experiences war. Labor markets are tight, inflation rates rocketed and the fiscal and monetary policies change dramatically with huge budget deficits and increasing interest rates. Rate spreads between European countries are increasing again. Climate concerns and regulations on ESG investing get ever more prominent. We welcome quant papers that address how to structure your portfolio facing these new challenges, covering topics such inflation hedging, the impact of monetary and fiscal policy changes on the returns of asset classes as well as the impact of these changes from brown to green investing on optimal investing and performance.
Authors, both academics and from the financial industry, are invited to submit papers for presentation at the seminar. Papers should have a quantitative background, with empirical testing of models, or other practical relevance and applications. We also encourage submissions of papers also on subtopics in the broad area of Institutional Investing and Asset Management that do not fit the main topic for the seminar. The audience of the Inquire seminar consists of financial professionals, mostly asset managers, all with experience in quantitative analysis of financial markets. A typical presentation will last approx. 30 minutes, plus 30 minutes discussion with the audience. Papers for presentation will be selected by the Program Committee of Inquire Europe.
Inquire Europe Prize
INQUIRE will pay the travel (economy class) and lodging expenses for the speakers at the meeting. There is a prize of € 4.000 available for the best paper presented at the meeting. The paper will be selected by the Prize Committee of INQUIRE Europe.
