Team Wilmott has been “Serving the Quantitative Finance Community” since 2001.

Our team…

Paul Wilmott, Co-Founder:

PW2013 Paul is a researcher, author, consultant, lecturer and expert witness working in risk management, derivatives and most things quantitative in finance. He has written over 100 research papers in mathematics and finance, and several best-selling, and some would say ground-breaking, text books including: Paul Wilmott On Quantitative Finance, Paul Wilmott Introduces Quantitative Finance and Frequently Asked Questions in Quantitative Finance. He founded the website you are now reading, the eponymous quant magazine, a successful volatility arbitrage hedge fund and the world’s largest, high-level quant education program, the Certificate in Quantitative Finance. Paul is one of the authors of the Financial Modelers’ Manifesto.

Paul Wilmott has been called “cult derivatives lecturer” (Financial Times), “the smartest of the quants, he may be the only smart quant” (Portfolio magazine), “the finance industry’s Mozart” (Sunday Business), “financial mathematics guru” (BBC) and “arguably the most influential quant today” (Newsweek).

He was briefly a professional juggler and a competitive ballroom dancer. He has won a sandcastle-building competition and come second to last in a poetry reading contest. He makes his own cheese. Its flavour has been described as “challenging.”


Andrea Estrella, Co-Founder:

Andrea has been an art restorer, a translator, an actress, model and surf bum. She studied advertising and photography. Her hobbies have included American football, as a participant and thankfully without too much brain damage, skiing, and making banana bread with all the leftover bananas she seems to accumulate. andrea

Dan Tudball, Editor:

DT Dan joined Wilmott after five years working with leading consumer publishers in South East Asia, where amongst other things he was the launch editor of FHM in Singapore – the first international edition of the leading men’s magazine. He assures us, however, that quantitative finance is just as sexy.
