Hidden Edge Club: Capital Markets Dinner

Hidden Edge Club: Capital Markets Dinner

  • Location:London, United Kingdon
  • Venue:Andaz Hotel
  • Length:06:30 pm – 09:30 pm

Any financial institution will know the importance of being able to calculate risk. It is a major factor in the success or failure in capital markets.

McLaren’s Formula 1 team have turned to high performance data analytics to seek a competitive edge. They found that using new systems that could process data from previous races they were able to accurately predict when a car or driver would be running into difficulty and could preemptively address the issue.

Leading capital market companies are looking to tread the same path when it comes to risk. For example, the United Overseas Bank reduced their risk forecasting time from 18 hours to 15 minutes.

We are delighted to announce that Jon Tomlinson—Lotus F1 chief aerodynamicist, formerly of Williams F1—will be chairing our next Hidden Edge Club discussion, sharing his experience of data analytics in the sport and how this new technology is crucial in any high-powered environment. The Club is coming together once more on the 18th of November at the Andaz Hotel in Liverpool Street to discuss the future of risk forecasting. The evening will consist of networking drinks, a round-table discussion and finally a sumptuous three-course meal.

Time-efficient risk analysis. 
New technologies are processing risk within minutes, not days. This gives teams accurate and immediate data, which is conducive to better decision-making and makes them more agile.
Reducing capital buffers. 
Financial regulations have decreed that a capital buffer is needed to allow for discrepancies between estimated and actual figures. A reduction of this could save big banks hundreds of millions.
Manageable analytics.
Visual analytics has progressed in leaps and bounds over the years, and now some systems have markedly improved the way capital is managed.
