Like so many others across the world, we here at Quantbot Technologies are devastated by the war in Ukraine.
As a way for us to show our support to those directly impacted, we have made a donation to The $1k Project Ukraine. The project’s mission is to “enable direct relief for the families impacted by the war in Ukraine. [And] aim[s] to empower families in United States and around the world to directly send money to families on the ground in Ukraine.”.
On November 9th, several of our team members had a ball attending the National Breast Cancer Coalition’s annual event “Women with Balls”- a bowling fundraiser for breast cancer research. Our team, the Quant Queens and Kings, raised over $4000 for this awesome organization. We are looking forward to participating and raising even more money for the NBCC next year.
Thank you to the National Breast Cancer Coalition for hosting this fun event!
Last week, Quantbot’s CEO and co-founder, Paul White, had the opportunity to speak at Neudata’s biggest quarterly event yet: Data Insights & Scouting Summit-Autumn Edition. From September 20-23, over 1000 people attended the panels, presentations, and discussions from the biggest names within the alternative data industry. Chosen as one of 40 speakers, Paul presented “Data About Data: Measuring ROI” where he discussed how we can use metrics to better understand data sets and their respective ROI.

It’s been a while since we’ve gathered together and what better way to celebrate than at the Annual Quantbot Dinner. Even though this year’s Annual Dinner was one unexpected “hot”dinner, we all managed to enjoy each other’s company and catch up for the missed year’s worth of stories.
To many more years (and dinners) at Quantbot together ! #teamquantbot
Quantbot CEO and Co-founder, Paul White, was one of the presenters at the Neudata Summer Alt Data Summit. Paul’s talk ‘Data is Everything’ discussed how Quantbot manages its ever growing data science demands using tools from CodeWilling and Options IT for smart task routing in the private and public clouds.

For the last 2 years, Quantbot has had the privilege of being a company sponsor for the MIT Master of Finance mid-winter research practicum, called the Finance Lab. By working closely with selected groups of Masters candidates, we engage in focused research that benefits not just ourselves but helps prepare future quants to gain real-world experience at a Quant firm. In our role as sponsor, we have also developed a working partnership with the head of the Finance Lab, Professor Gita Rao. Just as we begin our 3rd straight year sponsoring projects for MIT, our working partnership with Professor Rao has come to fruition with her own research. As highlighted in a recent MarketWatch opinion article written by Professor Rao and entitled ‘A surprise about some ESG funds — they actually vote against environmental and socially conscious resolutions’, she was able to utilize Quantbot’s unique data infrastructure to create and categorize the datasets needed for her research. We value cultivating working relationships with academic institutions, and we are proud to offer our resources to Professor Rao and the students of MIT’s MFin program.
Once again, Quantbot was invited to MIT’s Traders @ MIT Trading Competition, as a part of Schonfeld’s sponsorship, held on the weekend of November 8-9 in Boston. Michi Botlo attended the event as Quantbot CEO, and he spent the two days meeting students from across the country that came for the event. We started the weekend with a Schonfeld-organized billiards competition at Lucky Strike on Saturday. After the fun, Sunday was the day of the competition and the students stayed busy, and got to enjoy a lunchtime networking session with Michi. At the end, students had a very fulfilling weekend and we were able to give our swag away to some bright future traders!
