Asset Pricing: Missing Data and the Quality of Signals – talk with Michael Weber and Volker Flögel
What are the most common pitfalls that practitioners face when dealing with missing data? And is it possible to extend the history of data by backfilling datasets, for example with ESG data where there is not so much reliable historical data? Find out in this insightful discussion with Michael Weber, Associate Professor at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, and Volker Flögel, CIO at Quoniam. Together they discuss how to deal with missing data in asset pricing and investment – also in light of the current market environment – and give an outlook on upcoming research in this area.
