Building Blocks of Network Analytics 


Registration and refreshments


Session 1: Network Analytics - the State of the Art

  • Introduction to Network Theory and overview of the training course
  • Applications of Network Theory in Finance and beyond: Risk Exposure Diagnostics, Market Correlation Detection, Payment Analytics, FMI Design and Oversight
  • Presentation and demonstration of FNA's software featuring a real time graph analytics engine and advanced configurable dashboard for visual investigation of complex data
  • Overview of scenario generation exercises through visual detection of anomalies in market dynamics; reverse as well as forward-looking stress testing


Coffee break


Session 2: Using network simulations to understand and design FMIs

  • Modelling FMIs as complex systems with Agent Based Modelling
  • Measuring liquidity efficiency
  • Developing new Liquidity-Saving Mechanisms
  • Hands on use of interactive dashboards in relation to Case Studies of e.g. CLS, LVTS, CHAPS




Session 3: Diagnostic analytics: Detection and Investigation of Financial Crime

  • Improving fraud detection and AML with network theory
  • "Following the money" in manual investigation of financial crime
  • Identification of DDoS attack patterns through real time detection of anomalies in cyber-networks
  • Hands on use of interactive dashboards in relation to Case Studies


Coffee break


Session 4: Monitoring FMIs and their Members for liquidity, solvency and systemic risks

  • Using payment data to measure liquidity and solvency of financial institutions
  • Real-time monitoring and outlier detection 
  • Interconnectedness of CCPs
  • Hands on use of dashboards in relation to Case Studies of e.g. Banco de la República, CLS, Bank of Korea


Coffee break


Session 5: Stress Testing FMIs

  • Developing stress scenarios (participant failure, operational issues, etc.)
  • Using Agent Based Simulations to evaluate different stress scenarios 
  • Running Simulations
  • Hands on use of interactive dashboards in relation to Case Studies


Coffee break


Session 6: Course conclusion: potential applications for network analytics and next steps
