Finance and Stochastics presents research in all areas of finance based on stochastic methods as well as on specific topics in mathematics motivated by the analysis of problems in finance (in particular probability theory, statistics and stochastic analysis).

The journal also publishes surveys on financial topics of general interest if they clearly picture and illuminate the basic ideas and techniques at work, the interrelationship of different approaches and the central questions which remain open.

In addition, Finance and Stochastics features special issues devoted to specific topics in rapidly growing research areas. The journal serves as an ideal publication platform for both theoretical and applied financial economists using advanced stochastic methods and researchers in stochastics motivated by and interested in applications in finance and insurance.

  • 25 Years of Finance and Stochastics

    Finance and Stochastics was founded in 1996 by Dieter Sondermann with strong support by many other members of the future editorial board. The idea was to have a high-quality publication platform for both theoretical and applied financial economists using advanced stochastic methods and researchers in stochastics motivated by and interested in applications in finance and insurance. In the last 25 years, Finance and Stochastics has established itself as one of the leading journals in this active field. 

    A Special Issue of Finance and Stochastics to mark the 25th anniversary will be published later this year. You can find the Editorial by Martin Schweizer and Dieter Sondermann published on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the journal here:

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
