Quantitative Finance

Quantitative Finance or Mathematical Finance is applied mathematics with a strong focus on the financial markets. In Quant Finance, especially quant finance for trading firms, the quant seeks to use numerical models from market prices, company or asset fundamental data, and alternative data to develop new trading or investment models. The goal is to provide a new trading model.

CloudQuant provides quantitive financial enthusiast and professionals with free tools to develop new trading models. These crowd researchers develop the trading models and work with quantitative traders to execute the trading strategy. The quant is paid based on a license agreement where the trading strategy receives an allocation and they retain their own intellectual property (the algo.)
