Spring Into Quant Finance 2022 with G-Research
Spring Into Quant Finance 2022
Join G-Research’s spring insights week and learn what it takes to become a successful quant at a major quantitative finance business.
G-Research is Europe’s leading quantitative finance research firm. We utilise machine learning, big data, and some of the most advanced technology available to predict movements in global markets.
Based in London with around 1,000 employees, we boast a fun, academic culture that generates cutting-edge research that makes us among the best in the world at what we do.
Spring into Quant Finance is G-Research’s week-long residential programme, hosted in the 2022 Easter holidays, that provides students with an introduction to the world of quantitative finance.
Hosted at a 5* hotel in the countryside just outside of London, successful applicants will:
- Hear talks on different aspects of the industry
- Undertake specialised training in cutting-edge areas of ML, data science and finance
- Speak with our CEO and Head of Research
- Network with our quantitative researchers
- Receive a £750 stipend and have all expenses paid
At the end of the week, you will have developed a clear idea of what it means to work in quantitative finance, learnt sought-after skills, and built a valuable professional network.
Someone once said, however, that all work and no play is not optimal. So with exclusive use of a luxury hotel, there will be all sorts of fun events and activities in the itinerary, plus use of the hotel’s extensive facilities and grounds. And of course, all food, drink and travel is taken care of – this will include dinner in the hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant.
After the insights week
All participants will be offered a fast-track pathway into G-Research’s 2023 summer internship. You will also have a big head-start on peers as and when you are ready to transition from academia to business.
