Intensive, practical and focused training

Central Banking and Kimmo Soramäki have designed this two-day training course to provide practitioners with the latest developments and good practice methods to utilise network theory and analytics to:

  • Improving fraud detection and AML with network theory
  • Analyse and real time monitoring of risk exposures
  • Application of stress testing correlation networks
  • Using network simulations to model FMIs

The first day of the course covers the building blocks and essential elements used in the analysis: scenario generation and monitoring of risk exposure networks; visualisation of dynamics of market correlations; development of advanced stress testing procedures.

The second pivots towards the practical with sessions detailing applications of techniques in payment analytics through network theory and agent-based modelling; design and oversight of financial market infrastructures; detection and investigation of financial and cyber-crime.

Throughout the course, each session features interactive hand-on exercises that will enable delegates to apply their newly acquired skills to real-life market scenarios, and conduct analysis' of data via digital dashboards provided by the tutor.

Kimmo Soramäki is the founder and CEO of Financial Network Analytics (FNA) and the founding editor-in-chief of The Journal of Network Theory in Finance. He started his career as an economist at the Bank of Finland where he developed in 1997 the first simulation model for interbank payment systems. In 2004 while at the research department of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Mr Soramäki was among the first to apply methods from network theory to improve our understanding of financial systems. During the financial crisis of 2007-2008 he advised several central banks, including the Bank of England and European Central Bank, in modelling interconnections and systemic risk. This work led him to found FNA in 2013 provide solutions to monitor the complex financial networks that play a continually larger role in the world around us. Mr Soramäki holds a Doctor of Science in Operations Research and a Master of Science in Economics (Finance), both from Aalto University in Helsinki.

Financial Network Analytics

The recognition that financial systems can be usefully understood as a complex web of dynamic relations between financial institutions and markets is changing the way central bankers, supervisors and private financial institutions work. The key to this new way of thinking is network theory.

Watch this video to gain insight into how Network Analytics works, and how it applies to the world of finance and systemic risk management. In addition, discover how its tools can be used in key work at central banks, regulators, FMIs as well as financial institutions in the private sector.

Kimmo also discusses the course sessions across the two days, giving insight into what you will gain from attending the course.


Learning Outcomes

By the end of the training, participants will have gained new knowledge and a more comprehensive understanding of:

  • Assessing the impact of macro-shocks on capital markets with correlation analytics 
  • Mapping and visualing of balance sheet interconnections; their use in forecasting
  • Monitoring of interbank interconnections through exposure networks 
  • Identification of systemically important banks and risk build-up
  • The use of payment data to monitor liquidity and solvency of banks 
  • Mapping the impact of systemic risk on conglomerates
  • Visualising market structures in relation to asset ownership networks
  • Extensions to use in cybersecurity and AML/Fraud
