Description

A FINANCIAL ENGINEERING PRATITIONERS SEMINAR



Join Nobel Laureate Robert Engle for a talk on Sustainable Investing

In this 1-hour seminar we will look at what environmentally conscious investments exist and how they are performing relative to the market. Professor Engle will introduce new research that allows for an improved estimate of the discount rate using modern finance tools.

This work examines publicly traded environmental portfolios to help investors hedge against climate change risk.


Robert Engle, the Michael Armellino Professor of Finance at New York University Stern School of Business, was awarded the 2003 Nobel Prize in Economics for his research on the concept of autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity (ARCH). Professor Engle is the Director of the NYU Stern Volatility Institute and a co-founding president of the Society for Financial Econometrics (SoFiE), a global non-profit organization housed at NYU. Before joining NYU Stern in 2000, he was Chancellor's Associates Professor and Economics Department Chair at the University of California, San Diego and Associate Professor of Economics at MIT. He is a member of the National Academy of Science.

He received his Bachelor of Science from Williams College and his MS in Physics and PhD in Economics from Cornell University. He grew up in Media, Pennsylvania, spent 25 years in San Diego and now lives in New York City.
