Robert Rice, CEO, Occam Financial Technology

Training Course: Advanced Risk

Robert Rice is Chief Executive of OCCAM Financial Technology, a firm he founded in 1993, with the aim of demystifying investment technology, and making it available to a wider financial audience. OCCAM’s range of software, particularly their newest products, POW! Risk and POW! Empirical, provide a set of tools for analysing, understanding and presenting risk and return in a simple but powerful manner, whether the investments are bonds, equities, derivatives, funds or other assets. Robert’s belief in the virtues of simple explanations – first advocated by William of Occam in the 14th century - and in the need to make quant practical, springs from his four years as Director of Investment Technology
at Quantec, and, prior to that, his many years with the Baring group, first in corporate finance, then at a central bank in the Middle East, and finally as Managing Director of Baring Quantitative Management. Robert is a graduate of Oxford
University and has a particular interest in forging links between the academic and the so-called real world’s. He is a member of the council of INQUIRE UK, a not-for-profit organisation which through grants and seminars sponsors academic research of practical value, delegate to its sister organisation INQUIRE Europe, and former chairman of its programme committee.
