TopQuants – the networking organisation for quants by quants, cordially invites you to its physical Spring (in summer) Event on

Bank runs and liquidity squeezes – what is happening in the market?

We are happy to announce our next TopQuants Spring (in summer) Event on “Bank runs and liquidity squeezes – what is happening in the market?” which will be held on the 6th of July 2023, and is kindly hosted by Rabobank at their head quarters in Utrecht.

As in previous Spring events, there will be a plenary program with different speakers and a panel discussion. Our main speaker Paul van der Westhuizen from Rabobank will share his view on recent developments in the market.

In addition, we will bring a variety of speakers to share different perspectives in a “rapid fire” format. Eduard Garé, also Rabobank, will share his perspective on the impact on trading of recent market events. Rik Klerkx, Cardano, will focus on rising interest rates, their role in the recent UK LDI crisis, the risk of spill-over to the Netherlands, and signs of instability in the Dutch pension sector. Finally, Catalin Cantia, ING, will share his views on how recent events have impacted the work of quants, and focus on modelling aspects.

The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion during which you are welcome to ask questions. As usual, we will conclude the event with an informal networking session, drinks & bites.

Looking forward to see you all there on the 6th of July!

The TopQuants team.
