A panel of four Wall Street veterans, who have made careers analyzing risk, shared their views on market liquidity, the effectiveness of regulations and the imperfections of modeling during a discussion hosted by the Rutgers Master of Quantitative Finance program.
Bloomberg’s Adam Litke moderated the high-level discussion among panelists: Mike Khorrami, chief operating officer of Tricadia Capital Management; Sasha Rozenberg, the former risk officer of CME Group; Bennett Golub, chief risk officer and co-head of Black Rock’s risk and quantitative analysis group; and author Nassim Nicholas Taleb, who spent 21 years as a risk taker.
The quant summit has become a tradition of the highly-ranked Rutgers MQF program, showcasing its thought leadership, its strong ties to Wall Street and its ability to connect students with alumni and other working professionals in the field.
For the fifth annual quant summit, MQF students chose to host a thought-provoking talk about the new world of market structure. The event took place at the Broad Street Ballroom, just a short distance from the New York Stock Exchange.
Ronnee Ades, director of the MQF Office of Career Management and an instructor, since the financial crisis of 2008 and the regulations that followed, market structure changes have impacted jobs in research, portfolio management, sales and trading, risk management, pricing and more.
"We wanted to provide a discussion on something not only contemporary in financial markets, but one that would cross many functions – to our students that means job opportunities – in the investment workplace,” Ades said.
