Financial Data Science

Powering evidencebased investment and risk management decisions  

Since 2003 Opti-Num Solutions has empowered numerous South African financial institutions to successfully implement data-driven models which drive their key decisionmaking processes  

Increasing competitionconsumer service expectationsand an increasing fraud threat requires businesses to make use of even more innovative methods to inform their decisions on how to operate profitably and maintain their competitive edge. Quantitative models, which traditionally provided insight for addressing questions such as which securities should companies invest in or who should companies provide credit to, are no longer the approach for addressing these areas.   

Opti-Num‘s Financial Data Science team enables our customers to achieve increased operational efficiencies and robust model risk management practices. We deliver immediate value by addressing real business and risk-based challenges, leveraging practical data analytics and algorithm development techniques. We enhance existing client models through our experience with practical data management and applying model development best practices
