Within the course "Introduction to computational finance" we are pleased to welcome two established actors from the financial place of Geneva. Each of them will spend an hour telling us about their rich experiences and introduce us with the obstacles and challenges they face on their day-to-day job. The idea of that special course is to give the lectures a different perspective to the students but is also very much open to anyone else interested to get to know these finance professionals.
