  • Better Hedging Through Deep Learning

    Metis Data Science

    Please sign-in at the front desk. Recent work by JPMorgan's Quantitative Research team has developed a new technique for calculating optimal hedges for arbitrary derivatives portfolios that is based on training a deep learning neural network. This technique reduces to standard risk neutral hedges when the standard risk neutral assumptions hold: no transaction costs, no restrictions on hedge size, continuous rebalancing of hedges, and no unhedgeable risks. However, it cleanly generalizes to the cases where those assumptions are violated. This technique shows promise for hedging problems in less liquid markets, such as physical commodity asset optimization and variable annuity hedging. Speaker: Dr. Mark Higgins, Beacon Platform, Inc. Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder Dr. Higgins co-founded Beacon in 2014 after spending twenty years on trading floors as a quantitative developer, trader, and manager, developing industry-leading trading and risk management software. ************* About Metis Metis (https://thisismetis.com/) accelerates data science learning for individuals, companies, and institutions through corporate training and accredited, immersive bootcamps.
