Nobel Prize winner Myron Scholes speaks at Bond University

In a major coup for Bond University, Nobel Prize winner Professor Myron S. Scholes, co-author of the highly respected Black-Scholes financial model, delivered a public seminar on campus today.

In his one and only public address during his current visit to Australia, Professor Scholes spoke on risk transfer, liquidity, and the role of hedge funds to a gathering of over 300 people.

Bond University staff and students, together with guests from around Australia, listened keenly as he provided his outlook for the global financial markets and the role derivatives have played in recent market developments.

Recipient of the 1997 Nobel Memorial Prize in economics for "a new method to determine the value of derivatives", Professor Myron S. Scholes is a world expert on derivatives with all binomial options models evolving from his original concept.

His model (the Black-Scholes model) is the standard in financial markets globally, providing the fundamental conceptual framework for valuing options, such as calls or puts. Trillions of dollars of options trades are executed each year using this model and derivations thereof.

Professor Myron Schole’s presentation can be heard online on Boardroom Radio.
