The 8th Financial Risk Day brought together experts from industry, academia and regulators to analyse and discuss recent developments in financial research. This year's theme was “Investment and Risk in the Low Interest Rate Environment” (conference organizers: Jeffrey Sheen, Pavel Shevchenko and Stefan Trueck).
