The field of quantitative finance is changing ever more rapidly, and in 10-15 years time the quant community could be working on quite different problems, using new analytical tools. So, what will it take to get there?
The impact of technology on finance has always been familiar to quants, who are often more adept with handling the evolution than some of their colleagues in other parts of banks. But as computers get faster, and smarter, and tougher regulations come into play, quants need to keep up by integrating themselves with the bigger picture and developing those tech skills.
In our first of the QuantMinds 2018 quarterly eBook series, we ask the experts and deep dive into the areas they believe will have the biggest impact on quants going forward.
