    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.

    Author : David Hallberg; Erik Renström; [2019]

    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. 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

As described by interview respondents, companies have shown an increased preference for a mix of capital sources following the financial crisis of 2008, which has led to an increase in demand on the capital and alternative markets.
