BITA Risk grows research team

BITA Risk Solutions, a division of COR-FS, has further enhanced the intellectual strength of its team by appointing Professor Stephen Satchell as Head of Risk Research. Professor Satchell, an acclaimed Quantitative Academic, will lead the pioneering research projects that BITA Risk undertakes, and actively work with BITA Risk clients to develop and further the use of quantitative and risk management techniques - continuing the development of the BITA Risk product range.

Professor Satchell is the Academic Advisor to many financial institutions in the broad field of quantitative finance, a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, the Reader in Financial Econometrics at Cambridge University, a visiting Professor at Birkbeck College and CASS Business School, an adjunct Professor at the University of Technology, Sydney and a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries (FIA). Professor Satchell will continue his academic responsibilities whilst working with BITA Risk.

Having specialised in Econometrics and Finance, Professor Satchell has published over 140 articles in refereed journals. He has PhDs from Cambridge University and the LSE and is editor of the Journal of Asset Management and Derivatives, Use, Trading, and Regulation.

His appointment takes the total PhD count within the BITA Risk team to six, which combined with the BITA Risk Advisory Board (comprising leading industry and academic figures) ensures that the BITA Risk product range maintains its position at the forefront of risk analysis.

“I am delighted to continue working with and strengthening my on-going research role with the BITA Risk team. I look forward to helping build industry leading quant products in conjunction with the team and their clients”. Professor Stephen Satchell.

“We pride ourselves upon the high quality intellectual pool that we have within the team. Advanced optimisation and risk analysis requires continual research and development as markets develop and requirements change. Professor Satchell is already a valuable member of our team and we are delighted to have him on board in this new role”. Daryl Roxburgh, Head of BITA Risk Solutions.
