German term or phrase:finanzmathematisch
gibt es für das Adjektiv finanzmathematisch einen kurzen Ausdruck (wie versicherungsmathematisch/ actuarial? Ich habe einen 10 Zeilen langen Satz vor mir mit häufiger Bezugnahme auf Gesetze etc. und jede Vereinfachung wäre sehr willkommen.
Explanation: It seems that English texts circumvent any term resembling "finanzmathematisch" and resort to descriptions (eg "discounted cash flow methods; time adjusted methods" for finanzmathematische Methoden der Investitionsrechnung).
I've used "mathematical valuation models" in the past to translate "finanzmathematische Bewertungsmodelle".
In any case, reference is made either to the "finanz" or the "mathematisch" component and it becomes clear from the overall context that there is also a financial / mathematical element.
Explanation: As we don't have your context, it's a bit hard to give you a direct translation of "finanzmathematisch", but it means financial mathematics - I don't know of any shorter version than that I'm afraid.
