Liquidity Risk & Tick Size

The discussions about liquidity risk per se and/or the price impact of the tick size, show that the liquidity issue is at the heart of today’s preoccupations. The liquidity issue will be taken up by the presentation of four recent academic papers on this theme and discussed during the panel session that will follow.

This event is organized by the QMI/Quantvalley Research Project and Imperial College London Business School, with the support of NYSE Euronext.
