Conference

News and Finance Conference 2017

March 8 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

2nd Annual News and Finance Conference

Hosted by Columbia University and Global Risk Institute

Financial economists have long been interested in how markets incorporate information. In the last decade, the confluence of improved computational tools and data availability for text analysis have led to new research methods and many important insights into how markets respond to the news media. But how does information become news in the first place? How do choices made by journalists shape the news to which markets react?

Organized by the News and Finance Initiative of Columbia Business School’s Program for Financial Studies and its faculty directors Paul Glasserman, Harry Mamaysky, and Paul Tetlock around their current research, this major conference will bring together an unprecedented group of interdisciplinary leaders from across academia, business, government, and the media to explore new frontiers in the study of the dissemination of news and its influence on markets. The event is expected to draw 200 leaders from across these sectors, building upon the successful inaugural News and Finance conference of March 2016.
