    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...

  • Can Financial Engineering Cure Cancer? | Andrew Lo | TEDxCambridge

    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 ...

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 up in financial maturity. And this continues on. You can have a checking account and savings account. You can have investment plans. You can have insurance. You can have a credit card. That increases your overall buying power. You can have a business loan. You can have annual audited financial statements. You can have internal controls. You can issue stock. You can use financial derivatives. This isn’t a comprehensive list and I’m not going to go through all of these. I just want to give you an idea, that there is this scale of financial maturity, from low to high. Concept 2: Everyone can always improve their financial maturity I don’t care what business you are, you can always improve to higher levels of maturity. You might be in a large business or a small business. It doesn’t matter. See if you can identify where you fall on the scale of financial maturity, and what tools and techniques you can use to take the next step. And I’m not advocating that every business should leap frog all the way to a super mature accounting department. That might not be right for your business. What I am saying is to always be aware of the next step to push your business forward. Concept 3 is the reason why. Concept 3: Increasing financial maturity improves your resource effectiveness This means more money. The farther along you are on the scale of financial maturity, you make more money. Let’s go back to the example of moving from cash to using a budget. When you start managing your money better, each dollar you have is going to become more effective. It’s like you have more money, because your cash is no longer flying around everywhere. And the same concept goes for all the other tools. Credit cards increase your buying power. Derivatives mitigate risk and free up capital. All these tools are designed to give you more money. Concept 4: Everyone can do financial engineering. When people hear the phrase “financial engineering” they get intimidated. They don’t know what it means. It seems scary. Finance and accounting are really confusing. But here is the thing. You are already doing it. You are somewhere on this scale. So I always encourage people to go out and learn as much as you can about this stuff. Everyone can do it. And the reward, is more money. So I also have a message specifically for accountants. This is one of those areas where you can really add value to your organization as an accountant. If you look at your organization and identify where you sit on this scale of financial maturity. You can then find ways to push your organization to higher levels, and that will really add value to your business.

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 patients can get the drugs they desperately need. Finance doesn’t have to be a zero-sum game; we can do well by doing good if we have sufficient scale. Andrew W. Lo is the Charles E. and Susan T. Harris Professor at the MIT Sloan School of Management, the director of MIT’s Laboratory for Financial Engineering, a principal investigator at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab, and an affiliated faculty member of the MIT Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Andrew is the author of five books and over 100 research articles. His early work showed that stock market prices do not follow random walks, as many economic theories imply, but contain predictable components that can be identified and exploited to manage risk and improved expected returns. Since then, his research has spanned many other areas, including: the econometrics of hedge funds; mathematical and statistical models of systemic risk in the financial system; evolutionary models of human behavior; and, most recently, applying financial engineering to fund biomedical innovation more efficiently.

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 offering a postgraduate degree in this field require applicants to have a background in engineering as well. In the United States, the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) does not accredit financial engineering degrees. In the United States, financial engineering programs are accredited by the International Association of Quantitative Finance. Financial engineering draws on tools from applied mathematics, computer science, statistics and economic theory. In broadest definition, anyone who uses technical tools in finance could be called a financial engineer, for example any computer programmer in a bank or any statistician in a government economic bureau. However, most practitioners restrict the term to someone educated in the full range of tools of modern finance and whose work is informed by financial theory. It is sometimes restricted even further, to cover only those originating new financial products and strategies. Financial engineering plays a key role in the customer-driven derivatives business which encompasses quantitative modelling and programming, trading and risk managing derivative products in compliance with the regulations and Basel capital/liquidity requirements. The financial engineering program at New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering was the first curriculum to be certified by the International Association of Financial Engineers. Computational finance and mathematical finance are both subfields of financial engineering. Computational finance is a field in computer science and deals with the data and algorithms that arise in financial modeling. Mathematical finance is the application of theoretical mathematics to finance. Quant is a broad term that covers any person who uses math for practical purposes, including financial engineers. Quant is often taken to mean “financial quant,” in which case it is similar to financial engineer. The difference is that it is possible to be a theoretical quant, or a quant in only one specialized niche in finance, while “financial engineer” usually implies a practitioner with broad expertise. “Rocket scientist” is an older term reserved for the first generation of financial quants who arrived on Wall Street in the late 1970s and early 1980s. While basically synonymous with financial engineer, it implies adventurousness and fondness for disruptive innovation. Rocket scientists were usually trained in applied mathematics, statistics or finance; and spent their entire careers in risk-taking. They were not hired for their mathematical talents, they either worked for themselves or applied mathematical techniques to traditional financial jobs. The later generation of financial engineers were more likely to have PhDs in mathematics or physics and often started their careers in academics or non-financial fields. The first degree programs in financial engineering were set up in the early 1990s. The number and size of programs has grown rapidly, so now some people use the term “financial engineer” to mean someone who has a degree in the field. An older use of the term "financial engineering" that is less common today is aggressive restructuring of corporate balance sheets. It is generally (but not always) a disparaging term, implying that someone is profiting from paper games at the expense of employees and investors.
