The idea of this meetup is to get everyone up to speed on the topic and show some applications from practice to inspire new ideas and discussions. We are very happy that our guest speakers Martin Stefanik and Antonello Cirulli are both alumni from our program:

He is a graduate of our quant finance program and previously studied financial mathematics at Charles University in Prague. Martin formerly worked in different areas of quantitative risk management at UBS and Erste, as well as an analyst in a long-short equity hedge fund, Petrus Advisers.
Antonello Cirulli - Research Analyst (OLZ & Partners) Topic: "Continuous versus Discrete Returns" Bio: Antonello is currently doing research on portfolio opimization and working on product development at OLZ & Partners.
