It is widely known among people in the field that Finance & Stochastics is the most prestigious journal in financial mathematics. Specifically, for papers with a proper math/probability contribution, in addition to relevant financial applications, it is the journal that carries the most weight on your CV in academic circles. Note that I am not talking about industry/practical relevance, but rather what counts at the scholarly level.

However, traditional journal rankings do not really reflect this. Is there a proper "source" that confirms in some way the prestige of Finance & Stochastics, or is it simply something that is to some extent intangible?

Maybe also mathematical finance?

I struggle with the idea to our such rankings solely based on 1 or 2 numbers.

Usually, if you work in a specific field, you would realize after so time where the most influential papers are published.

I was recently working on some work-related thing where I had to find out the rankings of top economics journals and I was surprised to find out that there are research papers using sound methodologies to rank Journals. If you do a quick google scholar search I am certain you will find something similar for financial maths journals too.

What about comparing its popularity/prestige to the journal of finance? That’s a pretty hardcore journal for sure.
