Are you currently registered in a Masters degree? Enter the QuantAwards competition. Submit an innovative research report in quantitative finance for a chance to win one of the 3 prizes below.
More than a century after the seminal work of Louis Bachelier, the quantitative approach to financial markets has become omnipresent.
Nowadays, many investment outfits specialize in research, development and implementation of systematic trading strategies, while other active asset managers have added quantitative strategies to their business lines. Individual clients may also now delegate management of their portfolios to robo-advisors.
These are just few manifestations of the changing landscape and we believe that quantitative portfolio management will become ever more important because of the discipline offered by the scientific approach and full automation of the investment process.
