Prospects and challenges of quantum finance

Iordanis Kerenidis, QC Ware

ABSTRACT: Quantum computers are expected to have substantial impact on the finance industry, as they will be able to solve certain problems considerably faster than the best known classical algorithms. In this talk we describe such potential applications of quantum computing to finance. We consider quantum speedups for Monte Carlo methods, portfolio optimization, and machine learning. This article is targeted at financial professionals and no particular background in quantum computation is assumed.
