The Impact of AI on the Finance World

Generative AI is gaining attention in finance for its potential to automate routine tasks such as market research analysis and code writing. Early findings report that the use of artificial intelligence enhances productivity, particularly in coding and data analysis.

Many hedge funds are experimenting with ChatGPT, using it to assist with research and and investor relations. And while ChatGPT shows promise in classifying statements and simplifying complex disclosures, it has been known to make mistakes.

The impact on the finance workforce is uncertain, with potential for creative employees to leverage generative AI as “digital researchers.” Ultimately, the hope is to automate innovation processes, saving time and increasing earnings. Kevin Cole, CEO at Campbell & Co., has noted that AI tools “are very strong for code completion, editing, finding errors and fixing bugs… Our model would keep humans in the loop — an assistant to the human helping to make their job more efficient.”
