Overview

SQA Seminar, featuring Harry Mamaysky

This event will explore the issues of compensation and talent management from the firm perspective. Companies need to understand how to recruit and retain the best talent, especially in an increasingly tight job market with outside industries such as Tech competing for people once destined for Finance. Owners also need to understand how important company culture, diversity, and inclusion is to the mandate of institutional investors.

Join us for an evening with Professor Mamaysky who will discuss how to use Natural Language Processing techniques to forecast currency and stock returns
