In this thesis we present a state-of-the-art approach to accelerate Monte Carlo valuations of embedded options. Due to regulations and improved risk management, nested simulations (scenarios in scenarios) are becoming increasingly important for institutional investors like: insurance companies, pension funds and housing corporations. Preferably one wishes to use a framework in which multiple related problems […]

Aggregate Risk Analysis is a computationally intensive and a data intensive problem, thereby making the application of high-performance computing techniques interesting. In this paper, the design and implementation of a parallel Aggregate Risk Analysis algorithm on multi-core CPU and many-core GPU platforms are explored. The efficient computation of key risk measures, including Probable Maximum Loss […]

Stochastic simulation techniques employed for the analysis of portfolios of insurance/reinsurance risk, often referred to as `Aggregate Risk Analysis’, can benefit from exploiting state-of-the-art high-performance computing platforms. In this paper, parallel methods to speed-up aggregate risk analysis for supporting real-time pricing are explored. An algorithm for analysing aggregate risk is proposed and implemented for multi-core […]

Portfolio risk is commonly defined as the standard deviation of its return. The empirical correlation matrix of asset returns in a portfolio has its intrinsic noise component. This noise is filtered for more robust performance. Eigendecomposition is a widely used method for noise filtering. Jacobi algorithm has been a popular eigensolver technique due to its […]

(Counterparty) Credit Valuation Adjustments (CVA) has become a prevailing form of pricing default risk on over-the-counter (OTC) contracts. Due to the large size of portfolios included in the CVA calculation and its computational complexity, large computing grids are needed for the evaluation. The main purpose of this thesis is to investigate an even more computationally […]

In this paper, we propose, develop and implement a tool that increases the computational speed of exotic derivatives pricing at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods. Our paper focuses on investigating the computing efficiencies of GPU systems. We utilize the GPU’s natural parallelization capabilities to price financial instruments. We outline our implementation, solutions […]

We show how to implement highly efficient GPU solvers for one dimensional PDEs based on finite difference schemes. The typical use case is to price a large number of similar or related derivatives in parallel. Application scenarios include market making, real time pricing, and risk management. The tridiagonal systems in the backward propagation of a […]

This article presents differential equations and solution methods for the functions of the form $A(z) = F^-1(G(z))$, where $F$ and $G$ are cumulative distribution functions. Such functions allow the direct recycling of Monte Carlo samples from one distribution into samples from another. The method may be developed analytically for certain special cases, and illuminate the […]

Free GPU computing nodes at hgpu.org

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at hgpu.org. We provide 1 minute of computer time per each run on two nodes with two AMD and one nVidia graphics processing units, correspondingly. There are no restrictions on the number of starts.

The platforms are

Node 1
  • GPU device 0: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 13.1
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.5.14, AMD APP SDK 3.0
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.3
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 3.0

Completed OpenCL project should be uploaded via User dashboard (see instructions and example there), compilation and execution terminal output logs will be provided to the user.
