# Financial Modelling with Mathematica®

A two-day training session for financial professionals that will cover the basics of Mathematica and examples from finance. You will learn how to use the rich structure of Mathematica to approach and solve practical problems in finance.

Topics

• Modelling, programming, and visualization with Mathematica
• Analytical valuation of equity and interest rate derivatives
• Applying numerical methods to derivatives valuation
• Methods to value and analyse complex portfolios in Mathematica
• Measurement of market risk
• Calculating and analyzing Value-at-Risk figures
• Applying Monte Carlo simulations
• Calculation of stress and worst case scenarios
• Measurement of credit risk
• Portfolio-based calculation of credit risk: Implementing CreditMetrics in Mathematica

Remarks: During the course the practical application of Mathematica is emphasized, i.e. topics like getting common data structures into Mathematica, doing exact day calculations and other boring but necessary stuff for the practical application is also part of the training.

In-house-Trainings

Our trainings can also be customized as an in-house course delivered at your offices for the members of your organization. This could be an attractive option if there are three or more people, who are interested in a training.

The two key benefits are

• Cost savings: Sending 3 or 4 of your staff abroad for a seminar could easily cost more then an in-house presentation.
• Tailored seminars: An in-house course can be tailored to exactly your needs and wishes.

If you are interested in a special topic in finance (with or without the use of Mathematica) we will be happy to put together a progam to meet your specific needs.

Ask us or our local partners about our in-house trainings or send us an e-mail.
