Last Friday, the Centre for Financial Technology was delighted to co-host UBS' annual quant conference at Imperial College Business School. This year was the biggest yet with 9k people joining in person and online!


This was hosted as a collaboration with Imperial Business Partners (IBP), the College’s flagship programme for industry partners, of which UBS is a member.  For more information on IBP please have a look at the wesbite.

It was a perfect opportunity for our students to hear directly from practitioners at the cutting edge of #quantitativefinance on topics such as #correlation#skewmodelling#NLP bots, empowering the investment bank with #data#systematic trading strategies, #stochastic journeys around #volatility and jumps in #algotrading models and #quantitative inventory trading.
