Women Who Quant is an international online competition and learning opportunity designed with the goal of increasing the participation of, and opportunities for, women in the quantitative finance industry.  Participants in Women Who Quant can learn about quantitative finance through live and recorded skill-building sessions, which are optional and online for convenience.  Participants will also be able to test their skills through building alphas—mathematical models that seek to predict price movements in securities and other financial instruments.

Women Who Quant is hosted and organized by WorldQuant, a quantitative asset management firm.  WorldQuant has over 750 full-time employees in 27 offices and 17 countries, in addition to over 1,500 research consultants.  These research consultants are part of WorldQuant’s Virtual Research Center and are independent contractors who work remotely developing alphas using a web-based market simulation platform called WebSim.

The top three (3) scorers in Women Who Quant will be eligible to earn a cash prize (or cash equivalent)  based on their overall rank as follows:

  • 1st place – US$ 5,000 
  • 2nd place – US$ 3,000
  • 3rd place – US$ 1,000
