Chair of Mathematical Finance
The Chair of Financial Mathematics combines challenging scientific research with practice, which means that the scientific core competences of Computational Finance, Stochastic Finance and Financial Optimization are perfectly combined with their practical application in the fields of Asset Management, Modelling of Financial Markets or Risk Controlling.
This symbiosis of research and practice is reflected in the Chair’s cooperation with numerous famous companies of the financial world: Allianz Global Investors, assenagon, HypoVereinsbank, KPMG, Pioneer Investments, risklab und Thomson Reuters. As a result of this cooperation, RiskFactory supplies research studies with real time data and time series and helps students to gather first practical experience in trading simulations in which former traders explain every now and then “how markets work”.
On its homepage the Chair of Financial Mathematics provides an overview of its main fields of teaching and research and presents its staff as well as its partner institutions.
