EDHEC Professor Jakša Cvitanić to be a guest speaker at a number of European institutions in the coming months

Jakša Cvitanić, Professor of Finance at EDHEC Business School, and Member of EDHEC-Risk Institute, has been invited to deliver a number of presentations throughout Europe in the next few months.

On January 25, 2013, Professor Cvitanić will be conducting a research seminar entitled "Competition in Portfolio Management: Theory and Experiment" at the National Bank of Serbia in Belgrade, where he will be presenting a recent paper on the subject, co-authored with Elena Asparouhova, Peter Bossaerts, Jernej Copic, Brad Cornell and Debrah Meloso. Based on a large-scale experiment involving approximately 100 subjects over multiple weeks, the paper develops a new theory of delegated investment whereby managers compete in terms of composition of the portfolios they promise to acquire, and studies the resulting asset pricing in the inter-manager market.

On February 7, 2013, Jakša Cvitanić will be present at the Luxembourg School of Finance, on February 11 he will be in Sophia-Antipolis for a presentation hosted by INRIA, a public research body dedicated to computational sciences, and on February 19, 2013 he will be a plenary speaker at a conference held in honour of Rose-Anne Dana at Paris-Dauphine University. Professor Cvitanić will also be delivering a presentation organised by the Department of Banking and Finance at the University of Zurich on February 22, 2013 and on March 8, 2013, he will be participating in a graduate seminar at the Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris. On April 4, 2013, Jakša Cvitanić will be in Paris as an invited speaker at a Natixis Foundation event on quantitative finance at the Pierre and Marie Curie University Jussieu campus.

On 4-7 June, 2013, Professor Cvitanić will be addressing the "Frontiers in Financial Mathematics 2013" conference organised at the Institute of Bankers in Dublin as a plenary speaker.
