This course provides an introduction to research on the intersection between insurance and financial economics. Starting from what modern insurance companies do and their role in the broader economy, we develop a unifying framework to study the pricing and design of insurance contracts, reinsurance decisions, and asset allocation strategies in equilibrium.

WU Research Institute for Capital Markets (ISK) will organize the second Vienna Symposium on Foreign Exchange Markets, in Vienna at Palais Coburg, August 19-20, 2019.

TOPIC
Research on risk premia, factors, and predictive regressions has traditionally focused on equity markets, while research on foreign exchange has been lagging despite its huge potential. Currently, the low yield environment, large international portfolio flows and unconventional monetary policy have made it crucial for asset managers to incorporate FX strategies and risk management. We therefore welcome papers on FX risk premia, FX strategies, FX valuation, FX and monetary policy, Emerging Market currencies, currency pegs, etc.

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS
Deadline for submission is March 31, 2019. You can submit your paper on our website: https://www.wu.ac.at/en/isk/conferences/vsfx-2019/.
Authors of accepted papers will be notified by April 30, 2019.
