On October 17, the usual trio of Ashar, Ricky and Katharina traveled under the river to Brooklyn and inaugurated our first-ever Company Info Session at NYU’s MSFE Program. The engagement from the students was phenomenal and we feel grateful to be able to highlight the quant space as a viable option for internships.
Back in September, Quantbot’s CEO Paul White participated in a panel at BattleFin’s conference in London. The panel topic was “How AI is Changing the Quantitative Trading World”, where Paul briefly described how the industry has changed since the financial crisis to today, and how people nowadays are focusing more and more on AI and Machine Learning technologies and using more Alternative Data sources. He then discussed how we value the Alternative Data at Quantbot, and how AI and ML can help us process the data quickly so we can shorten the time preparing the data and spend more time on research and finding alpha.
On October 3rd, Quantbot Technologies’ team of talented bowlers came back stronger than ever to participate once again in the annual National Breast Cancer Coalition’s Women with Balls bowling fundraiser.
This annual event aims to raise money for breast cancer research while providing a fun-filled night for the various teams. Quantbot was able to raise $3600 to support the organization and one of our team members, Shrinath, won Highest Score while bowling!
We are looking forward to next year’s NBCC fundraiser and events in the future to fight against breast cancer. For more information about NBCC and to donate to their cause, click here!
