Over the past five years we have seen an increasing demand for professionals with strong quantitative research, computational analysis, programming and machine learning skills and experience. This is being driven by several separate but related themes: the massive shift by institutional investors to passive strategies; the significant increase in the use of indexing and ETFs; investor interest and growth of multi-asset class portfolios and solutions; the growth of “quant hedge funds”; renewed institutional interest in active quantitative/systematic strategies; and the industry-wide scramble to effectively integrate artificial intelligence – machine learning and natural language processing - techniques into investment portfolios.
These shifts in investor appetite and the need to reap the rewards of rapid technological change has significantly increased the demand for entry-level and seasoned quant professionals. We expect this demand to continue.
Quant hedge fund assets have more than doubled over the past eight years to $967 billion by June 2018. -Hedge Fund Research
