Due to our continued relationship with Schonfeld Strategic Advisors, we were graciously invited to attend their first Quant Portfolio Manager Meetup and recruiting event on November 17, 2022 as one of the Portfolio Managers of interest. We had a wonderful time meeting some of the brightest and most promising future quants in NYC, while also promoting our intern program. Judging from this first event in NYC, our recruitment partnership with Schonfeld will continue to be a success, and we look forward to possibly welcoming some of these candidates to Quantbot as interns!
It was Taco Tuesday for the research team! Quantbot’s research team munched on yummy tacos and had probably far too many margaritas during their most recent research social at Empellon Al Pastor Rooftop And Bar. It was a great, chill evening out and we look forward to doing it again.
On October 17, Quantbot Technologies participated in the National Breast Cancer Coalition’s Women with Balls annual bowling fundraiser.
Every year, the NBCC puts on this fantastic event full of food, drinks, and fun; all while raising thousands of dollars towards breast cancer research. This year, Quantbot had two teams that raised over $7900- earning us the award for Top Fundraising Team this year.
We plan to continue our support of NBCC at this fundraiser and encourage others to donate towards the fight against breast cancer. You can learn more about NBCC and donate to their cause here.
On September 28, the Quantbot Technologies team was in San Francisco for the September Neudata Data Summit. The conference had over 400 people in attendance with over 60 speakers discussing the latest advancements in the cryptocurrency space and how blockchain technologies are enabling adoption for institutional investors.
Paul White, Quantbot’s CEO, was given the opportunity to participate during the Neudata event. Once during the “Panel: Navigating Turbulence in Crypto Markets”, where Paul and two other panelists “[e]xplore[d] how DeFi has challenged many aspects of traditional capital markets and discover how it can create alpha returns”.
Paul was able to also participate as a judge in a Shark Tank-like event during the conference. During this event, “four new data providers pitch[ed] their data proposition for established data providers” with one being declared “best in their class”.
You can find the programme with the list of speakers here .
In May, we were grateful to once again meet for the annual Quantbot company dinner. With good food, good drinks, and good company; what more could we ask for? It was a great night for everyone, and we are looking forward to another year at Quantbot Technologies!
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
