The macro-economy is a complex system. We model behavior of macro-economic agents such as central banks, investors and consumers using nonlinear dynamics (complexity theory). This allows, among other things, simulation of sudden financial crises and the impact on investment portfolios. Our approach reduces data dependency and improves model output in terms of realism and relevance. SyMath is based on Wolfram Research technology (Mathematica).
