ZACH DE GREGORIO www.WolvesAndFinance.com So to start off, what is financial engineering? It is using financial tools and techniques to make your resources more effective. Now that sounds a little vague, so I’m going to give you three key concepts that make this very simple to understand. Concept 1: Everyone exists on a scale of financial maturity So there is a scale, and on one end is low financial maturity and on the other end is high financial maturity. Let’s start on the low end. The starting point when you talk about finances is cash. A business that uses only cash. What is one tool you can use to better manage your cash? You could use a budget. A budget is a financial tool, to help you better track and manage your money. And by putting a budget in place, you have just taken a step u...
What kind of people does financial engineering program look for? What skills and background I should have in order to apply? How should I prepare in order to have a better chance? Does my personality match? Related video: Financial Engineering explained in 5 minutes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XU1am_cc2Rc
We are making breakthroughs almost weekly in our understanding of cancer and other deadly diseases, both in how to treat and – in some cases – how to cure them. So why is funding for early stage biomedical research and development declining just when we need it most? One answer is that the financial risk of drug development has increased, and investors don’t like risk. What if we could reduce the risk and increase the reward through financial engineering? By applying tools like portfolio theory, securitization, and derivative securities to construct “megafunds” that invest in many biomedical projects, we can tap into the power of global financial markets to raise billions of dollars. If structured properly, investors can earn attractive returns with tolerable levels of risk, and many more ...

In 2015, I became my company’s first internal transfer from a non-technical team into software engineering. This montage tells the story of being a self-taught programmer, big scary changing careers and (somewhat comically) answers the question of how I went from financial analyst to software engineer in a year.

Master and MBA programmes at Frankfurt School are based on a mixture of theoretical learning supported and reinforced with case studies and group work following the Harvard model of teaching. In this short video, we have followed a team of Master of Finance students as they spent a full week working together on a series of case studies for the Financial Engineering module with Prof. Heidorn. The students often worked late into the evenings analysing the financial models before putting together their findings into a group presentation at the end of the module.

What is FINANCIAL ENGINEERING? What does FINANCIAL ENGINEERING mean? FINANCIAL ENGINEERING meaning - FINANCIAL ENGINEERING definition - FINANCIAL ENGINEERING explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Financial engineering is a multidisciplinary field involving financial theory, the methods of engineering, the tools of mathematics and the practice of programming. It has also been defined as the application of technical methods, especially from mathematical finance and computational finance, in the practice of finance. Despite its name, financial engineering does not belong to any of the fields in traditional engineering even though many financial engineers have studied engineering beforehand and many universities off...
ZACH DE GREGORIO, CPA www.WolvesAndFinance.com In this video, I am going to walk through two examples that are a little bit more advanced. This video is really about giving you insight into what is possible with Accounting and Corporate Finance. But before we jump into the example, I want to talk a little bit more about the name. Financial Engineering. This term came about, because somebody decided to combine the words “Finance” and “Engineering” to create Financial Engineering. And the whole idea here is that Finance professionals can design a company the same way an Engineering designs a machine. Now I bring up the term, because unfortunately, Financial Engineering has developed a negative connotation. Because what most people see, is finance professionals walking into a company somewh...
Prof. Khaldoun Khashanah at Stevens Institute of Technology helped create the Financial Engineering Program at Stevens which trains students in the development of algorithms and black boxes that are critical in the high frequencies trading industry.
Career in financial Engineering is lucrative, challenging and prestigious. Popularly known as quants, professionals in this disciplines comes primarily from highly quantitative backgrounds such as physics, computer science, mathematics, statistics, economics. Quants are highly paid professionals in banking and financial service companies. They are also one kind of data scientist.

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the fact that there are no fundamentals, only financial engineering which is too bad for a real world with a real environment and real people who need to eat. In the second half Max interviews author and journalist, Robert Chalmers, about the corporate lynching of Gary Webb, the journalist who uncovered the CIA’s role in the drugs trade.

"Financial Engineering ist eines der spannendsten Themenfelder im Finance", meint zumindest Michael Bloss, Finanzbuchautor und EIFD-Direktor. Da trifft es sich gut, dass in diesem "Spannungsfeld" die zweite Auflage des Buches "Financial Engineering" erschienen ist. Worum es dabei geht und weshalb das Themenfeld so spannend ist, erläutert Michael Bloss bei Börse Stuttgart TV.
MIT Sloan School of Management: Master of Finance (MFin) As disruptive as the financial crisis has been, the important lessons to be learned from the spectacular failure of financial technologies gone awry may actually pave the way for some of the most significant achievements of the 21st century. In this video, Professor Andrew Lo, the Harris & Harris Group Professor of Finance at MIT Sloan and the Director of MIT's Laboratory for Financial Engineering, provides a brief overview of the origins of the crisis, the key role that mathematics played, and how a deeper understanding of human nature may allow financial engineers to focus the enormous power of global financial markets on some of society's most pressing challenges.
