Humanity in the Digital Era | Человек в цифровую эпоху
Interview inspired by the following questions:
  • What role do the arts and humanities play in the acceleration of individual and community-led economic empowerment?
  • Can the ownership of our digital lives truly become our own autonomous private and protected identities that begin to benefit us as participants rather than passive consumers in the digital economy?
  • Can Art as a process and method of rigorous inquiry and practice enable us to form new models of interaction and self-reflection that enhance our daily lives rather than distract us from authentic living?

Life and death of market (in)efficiency | Жизнь и смерть (не)эффективности рынка
After the global financial crisis, most active strategies cannot beat the market. Over the past 5 years, a record number of hedge funds in the world was closed. At the same time, industry of ETF funds significantly grown supported by the growth of market indices. The current trend in asset management is that fraction of passive management is increasing and would be 50% of all investments to 2021. Where do market inefficiencies go? Is this new reality of efficient markets or consequences of zero interest rates and monetary policy of developed countries? We are trying to understand such changes in market inefficiencies.

Risk Finance Workshop | Семинар по риск-финансам
Risk retention and transfer decision making is a delicate balance between individual and group risk appetite and financial tolerance.
I’ll give a short history of insurance and it’s position as 10% of global GDP and the societal and commercial benefits insurance provides, but also why it needs to modernise for a new world.
I would then elaborate a little on my professional work process when designing and implementing a global risk finance strategy with a practical workshop how for example a large multinational organises it’s risk management and risk finance dept and it’s interaction with the sub-sector of insurance called the ‘captive market’ and a little introduction and how these vehicles optimise the risk finance value chain. I can provide a practical schematic on various structured products and securitisation, but not too much. Main aim is to pass on knowledge.
Plus drawing on briefly past, presence and future of insurance comments - because I love to do that.

Fundamental factors affecting the MOEX Russia Index: structural break detection in a long-term time series | Фундаментальные факторы, влияющие на индекс ММВБ: определение структурного сдвига в длинных временных рядах
This presentation studies how the influence of the fundamental factors on the Russian stock market changes retrospectively. We empirically test the impact of daily values of fundamental factors (indexes of foreign stock markets, oil price, exchange rate and interest rates in Russia and the USA) on the MOEX Russia Index over long time interval from 2003 to 2018. The analysis of the ARIMA-GARCH (1,1) model with a rolling window reveals the changes in the power and direction of the influence of the fundamental factors which are probably caused by the structural instability revealed earlier in Russia and other stock markets. The Quandt-Andrews breakpoint test and Bai-Perron test identify the number and likely location of the structural breaks. We find multiple breaks probably associated with dramatic falls in the stock market index, for example with the significant falls of the then MICEX index in the spring of 2006 and the global financial crisis of 2008-2009. The results of the regression models over the different regimes, defined by the structural breaks, can vary markedly over time.

Is crowdfunding worth it? An evolutionary change in the global market for venture capital | Краудфандинг: стоит ли игра свеч? Эволюционные изменения глобального рынка венчурного капитала
Crowdfunding is the result of evolutionary institutional change in the global venture capital market. The crowdfunding institution has lower transaction costs and allocates risks more evenly in comparison with the two alternative institutions - business angels and venture funds. Regression analysis shows that globally crowdfunding is more effective mechanism for organizing venture fundraising. It significantly expands the audience of investors and projects that attract investments in the early stages

System for checking contractors "Insider" | Система проверки контрагентов "Инсайдер"
The system «Insider» is a functionally independent complex designed for predicting bankruptcy and industry identification of enterprises with high accuracy.
The industry identification makes possible conflict data processing and review of supplier and contractors for identification their main type of economic activity in order to exclude the risk of contracting with an unreliable company. It is very important when choosing a supplier or contractor, and also when banks or credit unions make decisions about the issuance of loans. Other application is financial analysis with taking in to account industry or sector specific in order to make adequate opinions about financial sustainability statement of company or vice versa.
This fact can significantly reduce risks:
1) Conclusion of contracts with companies that do not have the necessary production capacity and staff qualifications, as well as those in pre-bankruptcy;
2) Financial support for companies in projects that are not characteristic of the industry in which the company carries out real economic activity;
3) Distortions of statistical data, which are often used by authorities, enterprises and organizations, as well as scientific communities to develop the necessary managerial decisions, which reduces their effectiveness.

Healthcare intermediaries | Посредники в здравоохранении
The presentation begins with describing various factors — both legal and economic — that affect the quality of medical care under the mco framework. The discussion singles out a serious economic anomaly that the law of medical malpractice aggravates instead of rectifying. This anomaly is the virtual absence of incentives on the part of mcos and their doctors to compete with each other over the quality of medical care. It offers a semi-regulatory law reform proposal that would unlock that competition.
