This year in Berlin I have the greatest of pleasure to announce the keynote speaker and a new "Legends in Quant Finance" slot with Oldřich Alfons Vašíček introduced by Jesper Andreasen.
The Fixed Income Conference is now in its 12th year and in 2016 we are heading back to Germany and the wonderful, exciting and dynamic city of Berlin. The pre-conference workshop day now boasts four options, and as usual on Thursday evening all delegates will be invited to our traditional gala dinner.
Our three streamed main conference format remains a firm favourite as the longer sessions allow presenters to develop their quants ideas and present detailed analysis. Delegates can enjoy longer breaks in our informal environment, which is ideal for networking opportunities.
Managing Director, WBS Training
