The Saga of VaR

July 27, 2017 at 01:00:00 PM · Central Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

Next day shipping is great for Amazon Prime, but next-day just isn’t good enough when it comes to having a really good understanding of your portfolio’s risk. Three years ago, the Molecule team started work on our real-time Value at Risk (VaR). Several iterations later, it's finally ready for use by Molecule customers.

Join Dr. Ehud Ronn from the University of Texas and Sameer Soleja, Founder and CEO of Molecule Software to learn more about:

* Why it was so difficult for us to build, and to get right
* What a "right" VaR even means
* How we validated our approach, and how you can validate yours
* When Ehud will be able to actually predict the future (Molecule Release #10,317)
