You will get a detailed tour of the investment process of the quantitative investment world, one used by Professional Quant daily.

The hedge fund market has seen massive adoption of a data-driven, quantitative approach. In an article published in Wired Technology in Apr 2017, it states:

“There was $38 billion of institutional investment into algorithmically driven hedge funds in the first quarter of 2016 alone. In October 2016, one of the biggest players, Renaissance Technologies, which has $60 billion under management, announced that it received $7 billion in investment the previous year.”

The time to take action is now. Look forward to seeing you inside!
