Financial mathematicians use sophisticated mathematical techniques to measure and manage risk in the financial marketplace.

Our research covers a range of areas, including:

  • the pricing of financial contracts such as financial and real options
  • management of investment portfolios
  • capital adequacy requirements for financial institutions
  • valuation of firms
  • optimal capital management
  • optimal contracting.

Market demand for financial mathematicians is high. Our graduates continue into careers in investment and retail banking, insurance and actuarial, risk management in the electricity and mining sectors, and funds management.

Visit our Study pages for more details on investigating financial mathematics, finance, economics and econometrics as an honours, postgraduate coursework or higher degree by research student.
