The Consortium for Data Analytics in Risk (CDAR) supports research into innovation in data science and its applications to portfolio management and investment risk. Based in the Economics and Statistics Departments at UC Berkeley, CDAR was co-founded with State Street, Stanford, Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS), and Southwestern University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE). This year, CDAR welcomes a new founding member, Swiss Re based in Switzerland, and a new industry partner, AXA Rosenberg. CDAR organizes conferences, workshops, and research programs, bringing together academic researchers from the physical and social sciences, and industry researchers from financial management firms and technology development companies large and small.
