Location Royal Statistical Society, 12 Errol Street, London EC1Y 8LX

This meeting has been arranged to explore and develop a proposal for a RSS finance and economics special interest group (SIG), to promote the use of statistics in these areas. This was floated in the Autumn of 2017 and a small working group has been taking this forward, including with the support of the Royal Economic Society (RES) and UK Finance.
Denise Osborn, Secretary-General of the RES, will chair informal discussion to map out the possible scope of a SIG. Some of this, in very broad terms, was suggested in the initial call.
Everyone with an interest in statistics in economics and/or finance is welcome!
Please come prepared to say a few words about this and on the topics that could be taken forward by a SIG – and do please encourage as many other people as possible. The meeting will only work if people contribute ideas and suggestions. We would like to capture the extent, and the diversity, of areas in which statistics are being used in innovative or established ways in finance or economics.
If we agree that there are plenty of things in scope, then the aim of the meeting will be to firm up the case for a SIG, along with practical arrangements. This means gaining the commitment of sufficient people to act as a steering group/committee, along with specific proposals for speakers and topics for future meetings, or other events envisaged as appropriate for the SIG. So far, we have lined up Andrew Dilnot and Paul Johnson as potential future speakers.
