Full Summary: QCF SEMINAR :: Analytics of Optimal Execution

In my talk, I will discuss the formulation of optimal execution as a mathematical optimization problem that represents a trade-off between return, transaction cost and execution risk in the presence of trader-specific constraints. I will present some results of our research on the modeling of transaction costs using execution and market data and compare the characteristics of optimal trading strategies that result from the application of the model to the trade scheduling problem.
