Financial econometrics: a session in honour of Ramo Gencay
Canadian Economic Association 53rd Annual Conference

May 31-June 2, Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, Banff, Alberta, Canada

RCEA has organized a session: Financial econometrics: a session in honour of Ramo Gençay, at the Canadian Economic Association Conference in Banff, Alberta, May 31-June 2, 2019.

Ramo died tragically in Colombia in December. He was a Senior Fellow and member of the RCEA Scientific Committee from the outset. His contributions were fundamental to the RCEA’s launch and its subsequent success. Ramo organized and managed the RCEA financial study group. He was an agent of continuous inspiration, commitment and enthusiasm. He understood and personified RCEA’s spirit of intellectual independence and informal, but earnest scholarship.

Istanbul Bilgi University organized a conference in honor of Ramo. He was appointed as the head of a finance institute at Bilgi University and he had many friends and collaborators there.

Ramo will be greatly missed and will remain an inspiration to the colleagues and students who had the good fortune of meeting him.
