R&D within the degree programme
Research focus Quantitative Asset and Risk Management (MA)
The research focus of the Quantitative Asset and Risk Management degree programme is financial market development and regulation. Financial market regulation is undergoing continuous improvement. Internationally, for example, work is under way on the requirements for Basel IV, a new regulatory framework for banking supervision. Within the EU, under the Single Supervisory Mechanism, is the European Central Bank that is now primarily responsible for banking supervision, and no longer the banking regulators in the member states. An important new research topic in this area is regulatory reporting for banks and insurers, which has been comprehensively redesigned in recent years.
