Abstract:

In the decade since the global financial crisis and the Great Recession that followed, the financial technology -- or FinTech -- revolution has transformed financial markets and services through the automation of trading and risk management, among other things. The “ABCD” of cutting-edge FinTech are AI (Artificial intelligence), Blockchains, Cloud computing and big Data. We review these technologies of modern FinTech and the underlying mathematical foundations and describe several advances to address some of the theoretical and practical challenges in FinTech and investment science.
