Reality check for financial risk assessment tool concludes CWI-led project

Reality check for financial risk assessment tool concludes CWI-led project

One of the most promising tools for assessing financial risks proves to hold up after a thorough mathematical gauging. CWI researcher Ki Wai Chau developed a numerical analysis of complex algorithms that are developed to support financial risk management. His method provides a reality check for those algorithms, paving the way for future applications.
