Python as a languagebut much more so as an ecosystemis an ideal technological framework for the financial industry. It is characterized by a number of benefits, like an elegant syntax, efficient development approaches, & usability for prototyping & production, among others. With its huge amount of available libraries & tools, Python seems to have answers to most questions raised by recent developments in the financial industry in terms of analytics, data volumes & frequency, compliance, & regulation, as well as technology itself. It has the potential to provide a single, powerful, consistent framework with which to streamline end-to-end development & production efforts even across larger financial institutions. - Python for Finance by Yves Hilpisch
