Advanced Early Warning System

Leveraging the fully anonymised temporally-resolved networked data of firm-to-firm transactions, the project aims at investigating cascading effects on credit risk. The goal is to devise an actionable pipeline able to extract meaningful features from non-conventional data to outline novel predictive models of economic-financial performance.

The research project aims at designing and prototyping a digital system that allows different parties to compute a global assessment for a common individual without sharing the local. The system will be based on cryptographic tools (e.g. homomorphic encryption techniques) and accomplish with current data protection laws (e.g., GDPR).

Risk Overlay

The project will investigate the application of machine learning techniques to the problem of tail risk hedging for investment portfolios. The goal is to develop an innovative algorithmic pipeline to identify risk drivers in financial portfolios and to devise optimal strategies to mitigate such risks.
