MATLAB and Simulink Seminars

Getting Started with MATLAB for Computational Finance


Technological and regulatory changes create pressure for the financial services sector to evolve. Companies are responding to trends such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and climate change. Financial professionals and Educators worldwide use MATLAB and other MathWorks tools to rapidly develop financial models to deal with current and future business needs and deploy customized algorithms to decision makers such as investment managers, actuaries, and traders.

In this session you’ll find out how MATLAB can help you significantly reduce the time it takes to analyze financial data and develop custom financial models.


  • A quick overview of the MATLAB environment
  • Modeling Risks on a portfolio
  • Pricing derivatives
  • AI for Fraud forecasting
  • Application example by Dr. Bogusław Bławat from Kozminski University in Warsaw, Poland on using MATLAB for Empirical Prediction of Default with Corporate Strategy

Who Should Attend

Educators, Researchers and Financial Professionals who want to leverage powerful computational tools in their work with financial data and models
