Michel Maila Presentation at OITC

On Tuesday 13 May, Michel Maila presented to an audience of Canadian and international representatives from the financial services industry at the Ontario Trade and Investment Centre.

Michel spoke about GRI’s growth since its inception in 2011, including our new members from the financial services industry in Quebec and Ontario, and our plans to become both pan-Canadian and international in our scope. He also discussed the development of our research and education activities, including the Canadian and global “firsts” that have characterized our work in 2014 – Canada’s first post-graduate Diploma in Risk and Regulation (with Queens’ University), and at a global level, the world’s first Systemic Risk Hub and the world’s first Board Risk Oversight and Insight Program.

Michel also announced that GRI and the Rotman Business School at the University of Toronto would be bringing the world’s pre-eminent conference for Financial Econometrics, SoFiE, to Canada for the first time between 11 and 13 June 2014. This conference, which has previously been held in New York, London, Oxford, Cambridge and Paris, brings together some of the world’s most renowned experts in statistics and economics as they relate to finance. This year’s conference will consider econometrics in the context of systemic risk.
