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).
