The panel discussion (John Hull, Claudio Albanese, JG, Antoon Pelsser and me, overseen by Ton Vorst) was great fun. My favourite bit was John Hull trying to persuade the audience of the value of an MBA above more mathematical programmes. Now JH is a lovely man, but even he couldn't convince this audience! (Do you really get more interpersonal and business skills on an MBA than you should have picked up naturally by the age of six? I don't think so.)
JH had been talking about CDOs and CDO^2s, mentioning that he knew of some CDO^3s that had been done. Exp(CDO) anyone?
The photo above is of the gift I was given by the organizers. All of the speakers were given their own personalized cartoon...as JG said "of a lot of bald guys."
