Wilmott Quantitative Finance Technology User Survey
Wilmott/Wiley 530 Views

Functioning at the intersection between science and commerce, Quantitative Finance practitioners are integral to the development, adoption and standardization of technology throughout the finance industry.

In the aftermath of the global financial crisis, the painful reorganization of the financial industry, the acceleration and diversification of the information revolution, and amidst the plethora of new technologies available it is more difficult than ever to see beyond the buzzwords.

As a unique group of professionals Quantitative Finance practitioners are responsible for relentlessly striking the balance between speed, accuracy and efficiency for the core function of the industry they serve. A balance painstakingly achieved through the deployment of technology.

Wilmott Magazine, in association with Misys, UnRisk, Mathworks and HP Vertica are conducting a timely survey on the key areas and topics of technology that are currently impacting on the Quantitative Finance community. The results will provide a clear view of the realities of financial technology today; even more so to make a sound assessment of the trends in technology that will ultimately deliver tomorrow.
