What is Quantum Computing?
The applications of quantum computing in the finance sector include proofs of concept for portfolio optimization, option pricing, cybersecurity, financial modelling, and credit risk analysis. The majority of calculations performed by banks can benefit from a quantum approach, or a hybrid approach combining classical and quantum computing. Banks may start with simulators and progress to using quantum computers over the cloud. These applications have the potential to impact the bottom line of the bank positively and provide a significant advantage over traditional classical computing approaches.
Quantum Computing and Financial Services
Financial services is expected to be among the first sectors to benefit from the active use of cloud computing. The exact timeline for quantum computing to be ready for widespread adoption in the finance sector is unknown and depends on the complexity of the calculations and the size of the data set involved. Banks are pursuing different approaches and using different hardware to explore the potential of quantum computing.
