Course summary

Financial markets are now truly global and electronic, with decisions being made in a split second that can make or lose millions of pounds. There is no longer the time to contemplate a deal, instead there are strategies for trading and risk management that are used to make rapid decisions. These strategies are increasingly sophisticated, based on mathematical modelling techniques. Financial institutions are increasingly dependent on skilled graduate mathematicians to develop models and strategies in order that they can successfully invest. This has led to high demand for graduate mathematicians with knowledge of these modelling techniques and the skill to apply them to the analysis of financial situations. This specialist degree focuses on developing both your understanding and practical application of the sophisticated mathematical modelling techniques and information communication technologies that financial institutions rely on to price financial options, manage risk and optimise investment portfolios as market data unfolds. Approachable and enthusiastic staff use a variety of teaching methods - lectures, tutorials, practicals, teamwork and project work - to bring the topic to life. In your first year of study you will build a virtual investment portfolio and track its development throughout the semester. A prize is awarded to the student with the most successful portfolio of shares.
