Quantitative Research & Trading

Quantitative Research & Trading

​A quantitative analyst (in financial jargon, a quant) is a person who specialises in the application of mathematical and statistical methods to financial and risk management problems. Quant analysts apply mathematical and statistical models in the sell-side for derivatives pricing and risk management, as well as the buy-side for statistical arbitrage, algorithmic trading and quantitative investment trading.

Harnessing the power of computer science and vast data-sets to make investment decisions is no mean feat. In the words of Jim Simons, Renaissance Technologies founder and leader of the quant revolution, “The system is always leaking, and we keep having to add water to keep it ahead of the game.” The ‘quant king’ is no stranger to success. Since 1988, Renaissance Technologies has generated over $100bn in trading profits – more than any other hedge fund in history.

The International Association For Quantitative Finance is a not-for-profit, professional society dedicated to fostering the profession of quantitative finance by providing platforms to discuss cutting-edge and pivotal issues in the field. Founded in 1992, the IAQF is composed of individual academics and practitioners from banks, broker dealers, hedge funds, pension funds, asset managers, technology firms, regulators, accounting, consulting and law firms, and universities across the globe.

Our London City based consultants are specialists in their markets, recruiting top talent for organisations across the quants job markets throughout the UK and Europe.
