Since the 2008 global financial crisis, there has been a renewed interest in the financial institutions and financial markets in particular. In this backdrop, the role of informational efficiency and market quality and their implications for global financial markets have never been examined and scrutinized in more detail as it is done today.
This is due to the fact that the modern financial markets of today are increasingly integrated. Driven by news and social media, internet, and high-frequency algorithmic trading, dissemination of news and its incorporation in markets is extremely fast. This has not only raised a question on conventional theories pertaining to financial markets and security analysis, but has also started a debate on the role of regulatory institutions and other aspects related to social welfare objective that are to be achieved with financial markets as a vehicle of channelizing the resources of public to their most optimum use.
With the rise of AI and machine learning (ML), the conventional quantitative methods of investing in financial markets stand at extreme disadvantage. Particularly so because the advent of algorithmic low latency trading has completely changed the landscape of modern financial markets. AI and Machine learning algorithms are able to exploit the inefficiencies of financial markets within a fraction of a second. Therefore, in this battle of speed, technology, and efficiency, only those investors may be able to build capital that are equipped with the knowledge of the latest tools -that is, AI and ML.
With this background, the course offers a practitioner's understanding of AI and ML applications in the field of investment management, through solving real-life financial market problems, using python programming. The course is designed to help students in making a career in investment banking, trading, brokerages, and equity research firms as financial analysts, and other similar managerial and analytical positions. The course does not require any specific technical background or proficiency in coding. The course also offers a good starting point to those with purely academic and research interest.
