Career opportunities
 

Although investment and hedge funds remain the biggest users and innovators in quantitative finance, other financial sectors such as commercial banking, insurance and fund management are now keenly interested. Fund managers and hedge funds, for example, make extensive use of quantitative techniques to develop trading strategies, optimise portfolios and assess risk.
