 Overview

 

The idea of using mathematics to model financial products was conceived more than a hundred years ago. However, it was only in the past 30 years, with the rapid development of computer and communications technology together with globalization and banking liberalization, that mathematics and statistics have been extensively used in the finance industry. A new subject, Quantitative Finance, grew out from these applications and the growth was so phenomenal that the indiscriminate use of mathematics and statistics has been blamed partly for the 2008 financial crisis. Therefore, there is a need to further develop the mathematical theory to provide a better understanding of the scope and limitations of the financial models. The Second Singapore Conference on Quantitative Finance serves to promote Quantitative Finance and provide a platform for researchers and practitioners to interact and share their experiences and findings.
