Stevens research discovers a new blockchain-editing technology that could revolutionize banking and finance.
The financial industry is changing at light speed. Stevens, located minutes from Wall Street, is at the heart of this transformation.
The heightened interconnectedness of global finance creates exciting new opportunities, but also greatly increases complexity. Emerging threats include model risk, execution risk, business process risk, weaknesses in software systems integrity and cyber-criminals. The hyper-connectivity of markets also increases the risk of contagion throughout global financial markets from local shocks, stresses or crashes.
Powered by the Hanlon Financial Systems Center's world-class analytics and data visualization capabilities, Stevens leads financial research in focused areas that include high-frequency trading; financial stress; market volatility; portfolio optimization; interbank lending contagion; algorithmic trading strategy and regulation; financial fraud and cyberdefense; and the use of social networks and news content to predict markets.
