Yves Hilpisch


Visixion uses Python since years for a great variety of financial analytics tasks and projects. Recent developments have given Python a further push in this area relative to established tool-sets or languages like Matlab, R, C++, etc. This talk shows how Python can be applied to make your financial and data analytics more efficient.

By using concrete IPython Notebook examples, the talk covers the following topics:

  • financial data analysis
  • rapid financial engineering
  • derivatives analytics
  • fast Monte Carlo simulation
  • parallel code execution
  • graphical analyses

Among others, the talk touches upon the following Python libraries and tools:

  • NumPy
  • SciPy
  • pandas
  • PyTables
  • IPython (Notebook)
