Financial Mathematics Seminars

The Financial Mathematics Research Group at Ryerson runs a regular seminar series; group members, students and visitors will be presenting talks as advertised below.

Upcoming Seminars

TBA

November 27th 11am-12pm, ENG 210
Dr. Alexey Rubtsov, Department of Mathematics, Ryerson University
Abstract: Title of the talk: Portfolio Choice with Stochastic Interest Rates and Learning about Stock Return Predictability.
The problem of optimal wealth allocation is solved under the assumptions that interest rates are stochastic and stock returns are predictable with observed and unobserved factors. The stock risk premium is taken to be an affine function of the predictive variables and the stock return volatility is assumed to depend on the observed factor. The latent factor is estimated based on the observations. It is shown that the stock return predictability can significantly impact the optimal bond portfolio. The welfare loss from ignoring learning can be considerable.

Dr. Pablo Olivares, Department of Mathematics, Ryerson University
speaks on Pricing Basket Contracts by Polynomial Approximations and Discontinuous Models
Abstract: Some results about pricing basket contracts such as spreads and exchange options considering approximation techniques based on Bernstein, Chebyshev and Taylor polynomials. The dynamic of the underlying assets is driven by some classes of Levy models with finite and infinity activity, and stochastic covariance models with Inverse Gaussian subordinators as background noise.
