What does a Quant do?

Dr. André Suess, Credit Suisse, Zürich

Quants, short for quantitative analysts, are persons who apply and develop mathematical or statistical methods in the context of problems in finance or risk management. In this talk you will get information about this career path from an interest rate quant. We will talk about possible tasks and responsibilities, the skills you need for these jobs and myths about them. Furthermore, depending on your interest, we also go through an example project coming from the real working environment.

Time: March 22nd, 12:15
