What We Do

Speaker Series

 

We host outstanding, accomplished individuals across academia and industry in a series of talks and seminars held throughout the academic year. Academics discuss their research in quant finance, and industry experts share their experiences in real-life automated trading.

 

Coding Sessions

 

Join our bi-weekly Sunday coding sessions where you will be introduced to mathematical concepts behind algorithmic trading, learn basic trading strategies, and how to implement them in code.

These are hands-on sessions so a laptop is required.

Industry-Sponsored Workshops 

 

Join our career networking events with top industry employers to participate in industry-sponsored workshops, and to meet quant traders and recruitment leads.

Fireside Chat Series

 

To complement our Speaker Series, in November, 2021 we initiated the Fireside Chat Series to highlight the experiences of current students and recent graduates who have completed internships or are working in the quant finance industry.
