The collaborative lab facilities of the Hanlon Financial Systems Center allow students and faculty to work together in conducting research into technology and finance.

To understand the opportunities technology is creating in finance, researchers require access to vast databases and high-powered software tools that allow for the study of high-frequency trading, creation and simulation of optimization algorithms, the roles of machine learning and artificial intelligence in finance, sentiment analysis and market impacts, and more. At the Hanlon Financial Systems Center, researchers can do the kind of calculations and modeling required to help industry professionals think differently about how data-driven disruptions are rapidly creating innovations in this space. The uniqueness of the high-tech space is felt in the depth of research enabled by tools in the Hanlon labs and the quantity of future-oriented research done in this category.

Technology and finance publications

Since 2012, faculty associated with the Hanlon Financial Systems Center have been published books and papers in some of the most prestigious journals in finance, technology, math and business, including MIS Quarterly and Quantitative Finance.
