Nobel Laureate and NYU Stern Professor Robert Engle spoke to MS in Risk Management students and alumni on his research and future global collaborations with the NYU Stern Volatility Institute.
Professor Engle spoke about recent market volatility, the results of European banking stress tests and volatility in the Chinese economy. He noted that the Volatility Institute is in the process of opening a second location in China. “The idea is to create a global research community,” he said, through technology platforms such as the V-Lab.
Professor Engle also stated that having an “impact on application to firms and regulators is a measure of success.”
