  1. 1. Sustainable Investment Strategies : A Quantitative Evaluation of Sustainable Investment Strategies For Index Funds

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för matematik och matematisk statistik; Umeå universitet/Institutionen för matematik och matematisk statistik

    Author : John Erikmats; Johan Sjösten; [2019]
    Keywords : ESG; CSR; investment strategies; sustainable investment strategies; sustainability; sustainable investments; sustainable finance; index funds; tracking-error; tracking-error minimization; ESG; CSR; investeringsstrategier; hållbara investeringsstrategier; hållbarhet; hållbara investeringar; hållbar finans; indexfonder; tracking-error; minimering av tracking-error;

    Abstract : Modern society is faced with the complex and intractable challenge of global warming, along with other environmental issues that could potentially alter our way of life if not managed properly. Is it possible that financial markets and equity investors could have a huge part to play in the transformation towards a greener and more sustainable world? Previous studies about investment strategies regarding sustainability have for the most part been centered around possibly less objective ESG-scores or around carbon and GHG-emissions only, with little or no consideration for water usage and waste management.

  2. 2. PC Regression, Vector Autoregression, and Recurrent Neural Networks: How do they compare when predicting stock index returns for building efficient portfolios?

    University essay from KTH/Optimeringslära och systemteori; KTH/Optimeringslära och systemteori

    Author : David Hallberg; Erik Renström; [2019]
    Keywords : PC Regression; Vektorautoregression; och Återkopplande Neurala Nätverk: En jämförelse mellan deras förmåga att prognostisera aktieindexavkastning för att konstruera effektiva portföljer; Huvudkomponentregression; vektorautoregression; LSTM; återkopplande neurala nätverk; portföljteori; portföljoptimering; maskininlärning; makroekonomi; finans; aktieavkastning; aktieindex;

    Abstract : This thesis examines the statistical and economic performance of modeling and predicting equity index returns by application of various statistical models on a set of macroeconomic and financial variables. By combining linear principal component regression, vector autoregressive models, and LSTM neural networks, the authors find that while a majority of the models display high statistical significance, virtually none of them successfully outperform classic portfolio theory on efficient markets in terms of risk-adjusted returns.

  3. 3. The Calibrated SSVI Method - Implied Volatility Surface Construction

    University essay from KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Adam Öhman; [2019]
    Keywords : Implied; Volatility; Surface; Construction; SVI; SSVI; eSSVI; Stochastic Volatility Inspired; calibrated SSVI; modelling; arbitrage; interpolation; extrapolation; FHS VaR; derivatives; CCP; clearing; Implicit; Volatilitet; Ytor; Option; SVI; SSVI; eSSVI; kalibrerade SSVI; arbitrage; modellering; finans; matematik;

    Abstract : In this thesis will the question of how to construct implied volatility surfaces in a robust and arbitrage free way be investigated. To be able to know if the solutions are arbitrage free was an initial investigation about arbitrage in volatility surfaces made. From this investigation where two comprehensive theorems found. READ MORE

  4. 4. A study and further development of nonlinear unsupervised methods : With applications to financial data

    University essay from KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Henning Rydström; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The main focus for this thesis is nonlinear dimensionality reduction. When analysing data of high dimension it is often vital to find a lower dimension representation of the data, while preserving as much information as possible. Dimension reduction is therefore used in many fields of science and in many industries. READ MORE

  5. 5. Automated Triangular Arbitrage: : A Trading Algorithm for Foreign Exchange on a Cryptocurrency Market

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS); KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)
