Applications of Information Technology for Semantic Financial Data Analysing

My PhD focuses on the improvement of credit risk assessment models within the banking sector using business intelligence and big data advents. Lenders, whether financial institutions or crowdfunders, have been attempting to be innovative when accessing information about borrowers. They had endured information asymmetry dilemma due to inability to assess borrower’s soft information that are not found within the financial context, but would still reveal financial behaviour. My research will capitalise on the structured and unstructured streamline of data flowing from social media platforms in order to understand the borrowers’ behaviour and, dynamically, predict creditworthiness. The research will develop and evaluate a new dynamic credit rating model.
