Non-profit quant society formerly known as QWAFAFEW now re-branded as - an informal organization in NYC of quantitatively oriented professionals in various aspects of financial services (primarily investment management). The group was formed a number of years ago to provide a venue for quantitative researchers to discuss their evolving work with peers. As the field has become more “main stream” our membership has also broadened. Our membership includes a wide variety of interests and levels of responsibility. The members span the gamut from owners and senior executives of investment related organizations to recent entrants to the industry. Most attendees have some technical training beyond the M.B.A. level, and many have Ph.D.s All share a common interest in quantitative solutions to understanding investment markets.
Most importantly, we already have a star studded line up of distinguished speakers for the entirety of 2020 to drive my pledge for top notch content. It bears pointing out that unlike any other quant society you may find both the speaker & audience “quaffing a few” while discussing Girsanov’s theorem, higher moments or LSTMs. Our mission is to establish that quants can party & to provide a “safe space” for them to do so – think “Revenge of the Nerds”!
