IEOR E4714 Risk Management, Financial System & Financial Crisis. 1.5 point.

Not offered during 2016-17 academic year.

Risk-taking and risk management are at the heart of the financial system, and of the current financial crisis. An introduction to risk management both from an individual financial firm's and from a public policy viewpoint. Overview of the contemporary financial system, focusing on innovations of the past few decades that have changed how financial risk is generated and distributed among market participants, such as the growth of non-bank financial intermediaries, the increased prevalence of leverage and liquidity risk, and the development of structured credit products. Introduction to the basic quantitative tools used in market, credit and liquidity risk management. The two strands of the course are brought together to help understand how the financial crisis arose and is playing out, examining the mechanics of runs and the behavior of asset prices during crises. We also attempt to make sense of the emergency programs deployed by central bankers and other policy makers to address crises historically and today.

IEOR E4715 Commodity Derivatives. 1.5 point.

Not offered during 2016-17 academic year.

Commodities markets have been much in the public eye recently as volatility has increased and they changed from markets dominated by physical participants to ones which have a significant investor component. The largest banks either already have profitable commodities franchises already or are actively building them, and money managers and funds are increasingly including these assets in their portfolio mix. The end result is a dramatic increase in focus on these markets from all aspects of the financial markets, including the quantitative end.

IEOR E4722 Introduction to Algorithmic Trading. 1.5 point.

Prerequisites: Refer to course syllabus.

The course is an introductory level course on the various aspects of Algorithmic and Quantitative Trading. The course will put significant emphasis on topics related to execution and to greater extent to quantitative trading. The course will put large emphasis on practical consideration in the general area of quantitative trading, and in particular in the equities world. Some of the topics that will be covered. Market participants, the mechanics of trading, order books, exchanges, ATS, ECNs, etc. Market micro structure, routing, rules, market impact, covariance matrix estimation in various time frames, dynamic and optimal trading, statistical arbitrage, portfolio optimization. The course homework will include working with data sets at various frequencies.

IEOR E4725 Topics in Quantitative Finance: Numerical Solutions of Partial Differential Equation. 3 points.

Lect: 3.Not offered during 2016-17 academic year.

The course covers derivations and solutions of partial differential equations under variety of underlying stochastic price processes. Students will gain exposure to applications of partial differential equations to security pricing in different financial markets (i.e. equity derivatives, fixed income securities and credit derivative markets).

IEOR E4729 Financial Markets, Risk and Institutions. 1.5 point.

Lect: 1.5.

This graduate course is only for MS Program in FE students, offered during the summer session. This core curriculum course introduces students pursuing a graduate degree in financial engineering to the main areas and concepts of modern finance. The course's objective is to provide an introduction to financial institutions, financial markets, and risk management as well as the broadest possible perspective on how financial theory and real-life practice interact, preparing students for successful careers in the financial industry and paving the way for in-depth studies that follow.

IEOR E4731 Credit risk modeling and derivatives. 3 points.

Lect: 3.

Introduction to quantitative modeling of credit risk, with a focus on the pricing of credit derivatives. Focus on the pricing of single-name credit derivatives (credit default swaps) and collateralized debt obligations (CDOs). Details topics include default and credit risk, multiname default barrier models and multiname reduced form models. 

IEOR E4732 Computational Methods in Derivatives Pricing. 3 points.

Introduction and application of various computational techniques in pricing derivatives and risk management. Transform techniques, numerical solutions of partial differential equations (PDEs) and partial integro-differential equations (PIDEs) via finite differences, Monte-Carlo simulation techniques, calibration techniques, and parameter estimation and filtering techniques. The computational platform will be Java/C++. The primary application focus will be pricing of financial derivatives and calibration. These techniques are useful for various other problems in financial modeling and practical implementations from the theory of mathematical finance.

IEOR E4734 Foreign Exchange and Its Related Derivative Instruments. 1.5 point.

1.5.

Foreign exchange market and its related derivative instruments - the latter being forward contracts, futures, options, and exotic options. What is unusual about foreign exchange is that although it can rightfully claim to be the largest of all financial markets it remains an area where very few have any meaningful experience. Virtually everyone has traded stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. Comparatively few individuals have ever traded foreign exchange. In part that is because foreign exchange is an interbank market. Yet ironically the foreign exchange markets may be the best place to trade derivatives and invent new derivatives - given the massive two-way flow of trading that goes though bank dealing rooms virtually twenty-four hours a day. And most of that is transacted at razor-thin margins, at least comparatively speaking, a fact that makes the foreign exchange market an ideal platform for derivatives. The emphasis is on familiarizing the student with the nature of the foreign exchange market and those factors that make it special among financial markets, enabling the student to gain a deeper understanding of the related market for derivatives on foreign exchange.

Lect: 3.

Conceptual and practical understanding of structured and hybrid products from the standpoint of relevant risk factors, design goals and characteristics, pricing, hedging and risk management. Detailed analysis of the underlying cash-flows, embedded derivative instruments and various structural features of these transactions, both from the investor and issuer perspectives, and analysis of the impact of the prevailing market conditions and parameters on their pricing and risk characteristics. Numerical methods for valuing and managing risk of structured/hybrid products and their embedded derivatives and their application to equity, interest rates, commodities and currencies, inflation and credit-related products. Conceptual and mathematical principles underlying these techniques, and practical issues that arise in their implementations in the Microsoft Excel/VBA and other programming environments. Special contractual provisions often encountered in structured and hybrid transactions, and attempt to incorporate yield curves, volatility smile, and other features of the underlying processes into pricing and implementation framework for these products.
