  • Description:

    Quantitative analysis in finance requires many of the skills of today's physics and math graduate students. The market environment is ever changing via new technologies, instruments, and regulations. How have quantitative strategies weathered the upheaval in the finance industry over the past six years? Is the culture in finance different or similar to academia? How does one successfully transition to finance? These questions and more will be discussed to shine light on a career choice that physicists and mathematicians have been gravitating towards for decades.
