Presented at the NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference | March 2018

This presentation entitled “Recent Progress in Accelerating Monte Carlo Simulation on GPU for Pricing and Risk Management of Financial Instruments” was given by Serguei Issakov of Numerix at the NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference in Silicon Valley on March 26th.

This presentation addressed recent progress made by Numerix in accelerating Monte Carlo simulation on the GPU in applications for pricing financial instruments and risk management. Taking the forward Monte Carlo simulation, which allows for a natural parallelization across CUDA cores, Dr. Issakov presented a recent extension of Numerix's implementation to a broad selection of industry standard valuation models for different asset classes, including hybrid models that can be used to price multi-currency and multi-asset portfolios.
