The JOIM Conference Series (founded in 2006) is an extension of the Journal Of Investment Management (JOIM) publication in bridging the theory and practice of investment management. Whereas the JOIM journal provides a rigorous published format, the JOIM Conference showcases high quality presentations and a platform for interactive discussions of current topics in the investment management arena. Prevalent throughout both activities is the highest quality material suitable for academics and practitioners.
September 24- 26, 2017 / Cambridge, MA
FinTech and Big Data
This conference explores the intersection of Finance, Technology, and Big Data. FinTech comprises many new areas of development such as consumer finance, text analytics, systemic risk, financial forecasting, cybersecurity, fraud detection, payment systems, high frequency trading, and cryptocurrencies.
