Financial maths is the systematic and quantified analysis of:

  • Financial instruments
  • Financial risk
  • Corporate value and
  • The fundamentally important relationships between them.

The most important benefit of working with these tools is developing the skill to identify assumptions, and the confidence to challenge them.

This is essential in practice because so many real life assumptions are unstated, unrecognised, and expensively or dangerously wrong.
