6th Annual Energy Day

The theme of the 6th annual HEC Paris Energy Day conference is about innovative technologies that will support a cleaner energy. The Energy and Utilities sectors are affected by pressing concerns including volatile commodity prices, increased competition, and significant capital costs. Additionally, today’s global energy demand puts considerable pressure on natural resources and environment, and we must reinvent the ways in which energy is produced, supplied, stored, and consumed. The value chains are increasingly becoming “digital” through technological innovations such as smart fields, smart metering, smart grids, or smart homes. Green energies have never been so competitive, but old actors are similarly innovating to improve existing technologies. So, who will guide this technological revolution, and how?

    ▪ Financing & Financers
    Aligning of the stars? Will the fall of prices of oil, gas, coal, electricity, as well as interest rates lead to an economic disaster for some players of the energy industry? What is the right forward? Should we have a Top-Down or a Bottom-Up approach? Re-involve private finance? Is the involvement of private investors a key for the success of financing future energies? Can we still count on public finance, expecting countries to finance the energy transition despite their high debt level? How can governments adjust policies and regulation to stimulate private investments?
    New technologies or improvement of old technologies? What are these technologies and what is their impact? … In which sector? Who will support these new offers? Oil & gas / Electricity / Coal / Nuclear players? Will gas innovate, acting as a bridge to reinforce clean energy/storage? Will new actors survive, or will traditional players dominate?…In which segment? Deployment strategy: where to start? Upstream? Midstream? Downstream? Final demand management? How impactful
    should these technologies be on volumes (demand management/decrease
    of primary or final energy), or on lifestyle?

Behavioural Finance in the age of Big Data

The HEC Paris UK office is delighted to invite you to a Masterclass with Professor Augustin Landier, professor at HEC Paris, PhD graduate from ENS and MIT, and Best Young Economis of France 2014.

  • evene

    During the masterclass, Prof. Landier will draw from his latest research to explain how the use of big data is profoundly changing the investment industry and giving new material for practitioners eager to predict future performance, and academics keen on understanding market participants’ behaviour. Here are a few examples:

    Valuation – To estimate the fundamental value of companies, models can now make use of data such as Glassdoor or Linkedin which can help evaluate the organizational capital of a company, its ability to attract and retain talent etc.

    Behavioral Finance – Investor sentiment and dispersion in beliefs can be directly evaluated using social media or survey data. Such measures can be useful in predicting risk and returns.

    Forensic finance – The existence of fraud can be assessed by combining large market data with statistical analysis in a manner that is much more extensive than in the past

    Impact investing and ESG – access to new data is reviving the possibility to invest in companies that reflect values that investors might ant to express in their portfolio.

    Prof. Landier explains: “The proliferation of new datasets has drastically important implications for the financial industry: Whether you are an asset manager, a prime-broker or a regulator, Big data is raising new critical questions and opportunities for new business models.
