Financial professionals today must be able to work with increasingly large datasets. Whether you are analyzing your bank’s trade positions or working tirelessly to find exploitable anomalies in the plight for alpha, you must learn to efficiently clean up, sift through, and interpret vast amounts of data. This is where Python comes in. Python is quickly becoming the tool of choice for working with big data.
If you are a new hire, or if you work in programming, analytics, or technology for the financial markets, or if you are a member of a hedge fund team, Python is a key asset in helping you maneuver through and visualize your data.
To begin your Python adventure, join GFMI and Cara Marshall, Ph.D., in our complimentary one-hour seminar. During this session, Dr. Marshall will walk you through the sequential steps to get you started in Python. You will learn about variables and use Time Value and Future Value calculators to complete a simple exercise.
Join us for this complimentary one-hour seminar and be able to:
• Learn how to write, edit, and run Python code using Spyder, a popular editing program
• Define variables in the code and work with variables to store and retrieve data
• Write code to perform future value calculations based on user inputs
