#10YEARSOFQUANTINSTI

As they say, knowledge is the greatest gift in life. While celebrating our 10 years of existence, we’ve planned this series to thank our community. We are thankful to you from the bottom of our heart for showing the love & support in our journey over the years!


About the Session

Compared to discretionary choices that an old-school trader/investor makes, quant trading is based on, ostensibly, more objective criteria. Are they systematically better than traditional ones? How do we evaluate when to deploy a strategy and when it's time to retire it?

Our panelists for the event will dwell on some of these questions and provide valuable insights to appraise the effectiveness of a quant strategy.
