Advances for Exchange Rates, Interest Rates and Asset Management

Forecasting Financial Markets is an International Conference on Quantitative Finance which has been held in May/June every year since 1994. Since its inception, the Conference has grown in scope and stature to become, after sixteen years of continued success, a key international meeting point for those interested in Quantitative Finance, with the participation of quantitative market professionals and of prestigious academic and private research institutions from all over the world including major central banks and quantitative fund managers.

The FFM Scientific Committee is composed of both academics and quantitative market professionals to ensure the methodological soundness of the selected contributions and also retain the practitioner’s perspective at the same time. Over the years, the Committee has ensured that the presentations were original, high quality and practical.

Conference Venue

The Conference takes place at the "New Leibniz House" ("Neues Leibnizhaus"), Holzmarkt 4 - 6, 30159 Hannover, Germany which belongs to the Leibniz University of Hannover.

The New Leibniz House has been reconstructed between 1977 and 1981 for about 11 million Euro with a renaissance façade from sandstone true to original (appearance from 1652). 

German universal genius Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646 - 1716) lived in the Original Leibniz House from 1698 on till his death. In 1943 it has been totally destroyed - together with great parts of Hannover's Old Town.

Nowadays it is a conference center for Hannover's university and guest house for visiting scientists.
