Quantbot Sponsored Finance Research Projects at MIT

On March 13, 2019, Quantbot Technologies was represented at MIT’s Finance Research Practicum final presentation session at the MIT campus in Boston. As sponsors of the prestigious practicum this year, two of our employees mentored two separate groups of interns in their research projects through the first two months of 2019. One group focused on Fundamentals Nowcasting and the other worked on an Analysis of Commitments of Traders Reports for Commodities and Financial Futures. While in Boston we had an opportunity to not only see the results of the projects we participated in, but see and learn about every other research project as well. From Machine Learning techniques to ESG analysis, the students tackled interesting and varied research projects for the practicum, and we are excited to have been a¬†¬†sponsor this year.
