The FTG Spring 2023 Meeting will be held at Michigan Ross on May 5-6, 2023. The regular meeting will be on Saturday, May 6. On Friday, May 5, there will be informal short presentation sessions and small group dinners. If there is excess demand for presentation slots in the informal sessions, we will allocate slots randomly. The meeting will be held in-person only, subject to any unforeseen circumstances. The meeting is organized by Andrey Malenko, Nadya Malenko, and Uday Rajan, and is sponsored by the Mitsui Life Financial Research Center at Michigan Ross.
