How IMSL Is Used in Financial Applications
From asset management to investment banking, financial organizations around the world rely on IMSL Numerical Libraries for advanced data analysis and visualization.
IMSL for Financial Forecasting and Financial Modeling
With financial forecasting algorithms like GARCH, ARMA, Auto_ARIMA, and advanced forecasting techniques like Feed Forward Neural Networks, quantitative analysts and researches can create data-driven forecasting for equities, fixed income, currency, and commodities.
IMSL for Portfolio Optimization, Trading Optimization, and Financial Risk Management
IMSL libraries feature financial algorithms, functions, and techniques that help quantitative analysts deliver high-performance, risk-averse, and high-ROI trading portfolio management strategies.
With linear, non-linear, quadratic programming, and other options within the IMSL libraries, asset managers and quantitative analysts can quickly develop versatile portfolio optimization applications.
Financial Risk Management
IMSL financial risk management algorithms can calculate information about range of outcomes, such as best / worst-case, the chances of reaching target goals, and the most likely outcomes.
Trading Strategy Optimization
IMSL financial algorithms like the Genetic algorithm help quantitative analysts create trading strategy optimization applications that identify patterns, opportunities, and limitations in existing strategies.
Interest and Exchange Rate Analysis
Quantitative financial analysts rely on data-based interest and exchange rate metrics to make accurate assessments and value propositions for their clients. But parsing high volume data to get actionable insights requires robust financial analysis tools.
IMSL algorithms help developers quickly add interest and exchange rate analysis functionality to financial applications so financial analysts can make accurate and data-driven decisions.
Fixed Income Analysis
In fixed income analysis, analysts determine whether to buy, sell, hold, hedge or stay out of securities based on analysis of their interest rate risk, credit risk and likely price behavior in hedging portfolios.
Using the linear and non-linear optimization functions in IMSL Libraries can help drive fixed income analysis functionality.
Options and Derivatives Pricing
Because many significant problems in financial modeling can be expressed as particular choices of coefficients, initial conditions, and boundary values. The IMSL C library includes a function for solving a generalized version of the Feynman-Kac partial differential equation, allowing applications to efficiently calculate price options on stocks via quantitative financial equations like the Black-Scholes equation.
Why Use IMSL Financial Quantitative Analysis Algorithms?
The IMSL libraries provide users with the software and technical expertise needed to develop and execute scalable, high-performance numerical financial quantitative analysis applications. IMSL libraries save development time by providing pre-written mathematical and statistical algorithms that can be embedded into C, Java, Fortran, and Python applications
