Our amazing President and CIO, Paul White, completed his first marathon, the Rock ‘n’ Roll New Orleans Marathon, on Feb 4! At Quantbot we like to celebrate not just professional accomplishments, but personal ones as well, and while we couldn’t be there in person, we were cheering for him like the rock star he is. Congrats Paul!
Happy New Year from Quantbot Technologies! We round out 2017 with some End-of-Year Celebrations at both the New York office and the London office. In New York the whole office went to Suite 36, and chatted over plates of food (and helped along by an open bar!)
While the London office went for a classy dinner at hip Korean restaurant, Jinjuu Soho.
As we end 2017 on a high-note, may we wish everyone an incredible and happy 2018!
Sponsored by Schonfeld and hosted by Traders@MIT, 2017’s Intercollegiate Fall Trading Competition was a full-day event focused on algorithmic trading and a “day-of” case study, where competitors had to use quantitative analysis to solve a problem in real time. Designed as a realistic and educational exercise for students interested in Algo Trading, the event was attended by people from MIT, Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, Yale, Columbia, UChicago, UPenn, Northwestern, Baruch, NYC…and Quantbot! We’re always interested in scouting out young and exciting talent we can welcome to our team and encourage in their future careers.
In the spring of 2017, CERN—the European Organization for Nuclear Research, one of the world’s largest and most respected centers for scientific research—sat down with the CEO of Quantbot Technologies, Michael Botlo, for a reflection on his experiences working at CERN, and the similarities between Physics and the quantitative finance done at Quantbot. The full video of the interview is shown above.
To welcome Tim to the NY office, Quantbot Technologies showed up in force at the Joy of Sake event held in NYC on Sep 27th. It was a great night of endless sake, delicious food, excellent chatting, and mostly harmless mayhem (did I mention the endless sake? :D).
