Revolution Sponsors Rutgers Center of Excellence For Financial Statistics and Risk Management
Financial institutions increasingly rely on sophisticated statistical methods to process massive amounts of data quickly and extract useful information from it. Statistical methods are used to explore arbitrage opportunities due to market inefficiency, automate the asset evaluation and selection process, optimise portfolios and evaluate risk exposure.
"As the markets become faster and more interconnected, the ability to take and manage risk is a source of competitive advantage for financial institutions," says Neville O'Reilly,associate director of the FSRM master's degree program. "To this end, we see the need to advance research and practice through collaboration on studies, workshops and seminars, publication of technical reports and white papers as well as student training."
