International Symposium on Finance and Energy Issues (ISEFI-2013)

International Symposium on Finance and Energy Issues

09:00am – 19:00pm | March 1, 2013
IPAG Business School
184, Boulevard Saint-Germain, 75006 Paris

As liberalization advances and new environmental and energy markets grow and develop, the interaction between energy and finance is becoming of crucial importance. For instance, in the deregulated electricity and gas markets risk management is highly complex and challenging. This phenomenon is amplified by the trading opportunities in carbon markets. More generally, energy commodities are becoming closer to financial commodities. In this context, effective market supervision and monitoring competencies will need to be developed by the regulatory institutions.

This conference, jointly organized by ECONOMIX-UNIVERSITE PARIS OUEST NANTERRE LA DEFENSE and CNRS, and IPAG BUSINESS SCHOOL, will shed lights on these issues, by bringing together researchers in economics, finance and econometrics.

Compulsory registration before February 25th: jocelyne.barre@u-paris10.frNo inscription fee.
