The recent availability of large digital finance datasets brings new challenges to quantitative finance. Many of the classical financial econometric or optimization models become inappropriate or intractable when applied to digital finance data. Vast quantities of information available in every moment require improvement of the classical methodology, in order to understand correctly the...

The goal of this Project is to study arbitrage opportunities on limit order markets with boundedly rational agents. To this end, we aim to construct a model of a market with boundedly rational liquidity providers (market makers), liquidity takers (institutional/retail investors) and arbitragers (high frequency traders), and examine pay-offs of the arbitragers depending on the market's...

Multi-objective stochastic programming problems correspond to economic situations in which economic process is simultaneously influenced by a random environment and a decision parameter selected with respect to multi-objective optimization problem depending on the probability measure. In applications very often the actual probability measure is a little perturbed, has to be replaced by empirical...

The project focuses on utilization of multifractal framework in finance and financial economics. Specifically, we focus on three main branches of research. First, we examine how occurrence of financial extreme events translates into multifractal properties of the time series. For this purpose, we utilize the cusp catastrophe theory and the log-periodic power-law model. Second, we study usefulness...

The aim of this project is to model optimal dynamic behaviour of a risk-averse European carbon-emitting steel producer, to design and implement an algorithm solving the corresponding multi-stage optimisation problem and apply the model to a real-life steel company. A linear combination of mean profit and conditional value at risk will serve as a decision criterion; decision variables will...

The project will develop a new measures of dependence between economic variables, which will allow to study the frequency dependent dznamics of correlations in different quantiles of joint distribution. Although the previous literature is helpful in uncovering the origins of dependence at one of these dimensions in manz important economic problems, there exists no methodology being able to...

The aim of the project is to create a dynamical structural model of a mortgage portfolio consisting of multiple tranches. A default of a loan will be driven by a sum of three factors: an overall one, a tranche specific one and an individual one. Analogously, a loss (given default) of individual mortgages will be driven by a sum of three factors (possibly standing for a collateral value). The...

The aim of the research project is to analyze financial risk and market co-movements using novel econometric methods and their theoretically grounded modifications. The main focus will be on emerging European markets with respect to global developed markets, as well as important assets from commodities markets. Co-movements between the markets based on different data frequencies may potentially...
