DEVELOPING QUANTITATIVE

TRADING ALGORITHMS

 

OUR VALUES

CUATS is full of curious, likeminded individuals who are passionate about understanding and engaging with key mechanisms that drive the financial world.

We have created a unique working environment where the focus has been to develop algorithms through hands-on learning.  This has resulted in us iteratively developing and back testing a number of profitable algorithms, establishing a strong framework for the development of our ideas and running technical and industry workshops for our members.

 

We differ from many Cambridge University societies in that:

 

  • Our main focus is to educate our members by providing an environmetn to gain real, practical experience - not just lectures

  • You gain hands-on experience designing, building, and running your own algorithmic trading system as part of an interdisciplinary team

  • We engage with issues in finance, programming, systems development, decision-making, and much more and constantly look to learn from one another and our industry partners

 

CUATS is about being part of a team and working together to udnerstand, shape, and lead the future of finance.

 

We value diversity and the sharing of ideas.  To date, we have attracted a large number of members from a range of backgrounds, including: engineering, computer science, psychology, finance, economics, mathematics, bioinformatics, and more.
