Generative Modeling of Financial Time Series Project

Salary Unpaid

Are you about to write your master’s thesis or a similar project and interested in exploring the exciting area of generative models for high-dimensional financial time series? Do you want to develop novel solutions to the risk modeling challenges that investment professionals experience in practice? Then this unique research collaboration opportunity might be perfect for you.

Investment risk modeling at a glance

Investment risk modeling is essentially about generating joint paths for a large panel of risk factors, e.g., interest rates, credit spreads, implied volatilities, FX rates, and equity returns. The dimensionality of the problem poses a challenge in itself, but it is particularly challenging to accurately capture both the time series and cross-sectional properties of the risk factors (some of which are observed with different frequencies).

Generative modeling of financial time series project

Increased computational power and large-scale machine learning methods might offer elegant solutions to the above risk modeling challenges, and this is the main topic of the research collaboration. We offer suggestions for concrete problem formulations depending on the number of ECTS credits that you have available, which can be anything from 10 to 60 ECTS.

What’s in it for you?

You will get to apply your theoretical knowledge to practical investment risk modeling problems in collaboration with experienced investment professionals and thus be faced with the nuances that are inherent to real-world risk modeling. We will also make computational resources available to you if necessary.
