University of Essex
The course will equip you with the core concepts and quantitative methods in high frequency finance, along with the operational skills to use state-of-the-art computational methods for financial modelling. We enable you to attain an understanding of financial markets at the level of individual trades occurring over sub-millisecond timescales, and apply this to the development of real-time approaches to trading and risk-management. In addition to traditional topics in financial econometrics and market microstructure theory, we put special emphasis on areas: Statistical and computational methods; modelling trading strategies and predictive services that are deployed by hedge funds; algorithmic trading groups; derivatives desks; risk management departments.
