The project will address both the theoretical and empirical point of view of the new FinTech strategy for credit risk management and sustainable investing. From a methodological point of view, it will make use of the cutting edge standard parametric and semi-parametric techniques and the programming languages allowing the implementation of AI/ML algorithms for Big Data analysis, such as R and Python. Additionally, the project will implement an empirical analysis based on the new techniques to prove the fit of the new strategy with the sample data (e.g. random forest regression).
