SWUFE & CDAR 2018

The SWUFE-CDAR Symposium, presented in partnership with the Chengdu Municipal Bureau of Financial Work and State Street Corporation, will convene on November 2-4, 2018, at the Waldorf Astoria in Chengdu, China.

Located in Chengdu, Sichuan province of China, Southwestern University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE) is one of China’s leading universities for the study of finance and economics. The Consortium for Data Analytics in Risk (CDAR) supports research into innovation in data science and its applications to portfolio management and investment risk. Based in the Economics and Statistics Departments at UC Berkeley, CDAR was co-founded with State Street, Stanford, Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS), and SWUFE. This year, CDAR welcomes a new founding member, Swiss Re based in Switzerland, and a new industry partner, AXA Rosenberg.
