Financial markets have transitioned with technology: starting out as a place of trading, to high-speed online trading for higher liquidity and faster settlements, and now to AI-based algorithmic trading for accurate predictions and higher returns.
The need for AI arises from the fact that financial markets generate the highest data. Traditional online trading and analytics cannot fulfill all the needs of investors. That is why the industry is deploying AI to reduce information asymmetries, boost market stability, provide dynamic, automated, and high intelligence trading and decision making. In India alone, Banking, Financial Services and Insurance is one of the biggest spenders on AI across different use cases (IDC). Nearly 50% of capital markets professionals around the world use AI in their trading processes.
However, lack of AI expertise is often cited as a top challenge for AI deployment in financial markets. Hence there is a need for a program at the intersection of tech and finance to help professionals create AI-driven solutions.
The Advanced Program in AI for Financial Markets has been designed, leveraging the expertise of NSE, India’s Largest Stock Exchange . The program is aimed at financial market professionals keen to unlock the power of AI technologies.
