I am trying to find application of a quantum computing in finance. So far I found these papers:

  1. Quantum computing for finance: Overview and prospects

  2. Quantum computational finance: quantum algorithm for portfolio optimization

  3. Efficient quantum algorithm for solving travelling salesman problem: An IBM quantum experience

  4. Towards Pricing Financial Derivatives with an IBM Quantum Computer

  5. Quantum computational finance: Monte Carlo pricing of financial derivatives

  6. Quantum Risk Analysis

  7. Credit Risk Analysis using Quantum Computers

My question is: do you know about other possible application of quantum computing in finance, banking, companies finanace management or general business area?

Here are two more papers that may be of interest:

  1. A Quantum Algorithm For Linear PDEs Arising In Finance

  2. Dynamic Portfolio Optimization with Real Datasets Using Quantum Processors and Quantum-Inspired Tensor Networks


There are many Qiskit notebooks on quatum computers application in different areas, including finance, in IBM Q web interface.

For application in finance, click on icon Qiskit Notebooks, then folder Advanced -> Aqua -> Finance.

Here is also website dedicated to quantum computing application in finance: Quantum for Quants.
