The Financial Mathematics Research Group at King's was formed in 2000, and is currently staffed by seven members. I was the most cited author in the industry leading magazine 'Risk Magazine' for 2010, confirming that the group maintains a relevant impact on the industry. The group has been consulting for regulators such as the FSA, and our research in Credit Risk further highlights the group's leadership in the London financial community.
In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, the Applied Mathematics unit containing Financial Mathematics had 65% of its research judged as "internationally excellent" or "world leading", the highest figure recorded by any London college, and close to the UK national maximum of 75%.
The Financial Mathematics MSc programme is designed to enhance the students' knowledge and understanding of the subject, as well as to provide the required training for students who wish to study for a doctoral degree in the area.
