How to use R in Finance

Last month, OptiRisk in collaboration with UNICOM ran a very successful workshop “Finance with R” on 6 – 7 November 2012.

A significant number of people got in touch who were unable to attend due to the date and to enquire when the workshop is to be repeated. We are delighted to advise that the “Finance with R” workshop will be running again on 5 – 6 March 2013. We hope anyone who missed the November workshop will be able to attend. It’s a great opportunity to learn about using R in finance sector.

The delegates at Finance with R on 6 – 7 November 2012 gave very good feedback about the speakers. Attendees it seems especially liked “how to use R in Finance – portfolio Optimisaiton and VaR” and solved their confusion using R in finance sector. Among the attendees were Fitch Rating, HSBC, RMC, Solo Capital, UCL finance researchers, many PRMIA members and others.

The speakers discussed the utilisation of statistical software R to analyse data in finance sector and presented real world data examples. They showed the power of R, highlighted statistical models used in finance and gave fantastic presentations in this well articulated workshop. They handled the queries well. Ronald Hochreiter an R Practitioner will be presenting again and the delegates of the previous workshop remarked him very well. Ronald Hochreiter

We look forward in the coming year; when people and organisations will identify the potential of R software in finance sector.
