Your role:

Quantitative trading involves programming, researching, and modelling to make the best trading decisions. On quantitative trading desks, trading relies heavily on automated algorithms. These algorithms can be agency trading algorithms to be used by clients or principal trading algorithms used by an internal trading book. Quantitative trading makes use of many fields including statistics, computer science, and machine learning.

Interns on quant-trading desks will assist in building models used for trading, and evaluating and improving existing models to adapt to every changing market conditions. Interns will learn about and work with key concepts in trading such as portfolio risk management, market impact, market making, and market signals.
