Brought to you by and the CQF Institute, Dr. Paul Wilmott talked about how he applied elementary quantitative finance techniques in the run up to the UK General Election 2015 to successfully predict the next government.

Monte Carlo Methods in Quantitative Finance Generic and Efficient MC Solver in C++

We describe how we have designed and implemented a software architecture in C++ to model one-factor and multifactor option pricing problems. We pay attention to the fact that different kinds of applications have their own specific accuracy, performance and functional requirements. To this end, we apply the design patterns that we have discussed in previous editions of Wilmott. In this way we ensure that the software can be customized to suit new and changing requirements.
