Without being exhaustive, the following list gives an idea of the themes studied in the laboratory : dynamic models in finance, credit risk, multivariate volatility models, estimation of risk measures, conditional and systemic risks, bubble models and noncausal processes, stochastic models for energy, Lévy processes, granularity adjustments, longetivity risk, portfolio optimization.
The Finance and Insurance faculty teach in the ENSAE engineering program as well as various research oriented masters and PhD tracks : Master Statistics, Finance and Actuarial Science (IP Paris) ; PhD track in Mathematics for Finance (IP Paris) ; Master in Economics (IP Paris and HEC Paris). The department contributes to the PhD program in Mathematics “Ecole Doctorale de Mathématiques Hadamard” (EDMH), joint between IP Paris and University Paris-Saclay.
