About the Stevanovich Center for Financial Mathematics

The Stevanovich Center seeks to advance the understanding of the increasingly complex world of financial markets by integrating mathematics, statistics, econometrics, economics and finance. Our main focus is quantitative finance, ranging from mathematical finance – via financial econometrics – to asset pricing.

The Center brings together leading academic researchers and financial professionals whose insights from daily experience in the markets help translate theory into improved practice. The Center hosts weekly seminars and annual conferences where University of Chicago researchers, visitors from academia and experts from the marketplace present, discuss and debate ideas that advance our understanding of the mathematical basis of financial markets. These interactions lead to more sophisticated tools to address challenges that range from analyzing, visualizing, and interpreting massive data sets, to building more accurate, tractable, and robust models to measure, price, and hedge risk. These tools are of interest to investors, regulators and policymakers. The Stevanovich Center for Financial Mathematics is a member of the Society for Financial Econometrics. If you’d like to get involved with the Center, please contact its Director, Per Mykland.
