Python for Finance

Python is a general programming language which can be used to build web applications, websites or even complex applications. The most important part of Python is its syntax which is considered to be close to the original mathematics syntax. This makes it quite flexible in playing around with numbers, making it a very useful tool for data analysis, risk management, automatic trading and other financial applications.

During the course, the delegates will focus on practical applications of the programme in the area of finance and risk through workshops and working examples.

No programming experience is required.
