Intersection Between Quant and Technology
Deutsche Bank Mention
Deutsche Bank had a few nice words to say about QuantConnect in their recent news letter:
“Recently we came across an interesting company called QuantConnect that perfectly embodies the intersection between quant and technology. QuantConnect is a startup that is trying to “democratize” quant investing. Most of us, who have spent too many late nights trying to fix a recalcitrant server or debug a crashed SQL script, know that the biggest barrier to entry in quant is the IT infrastructure required to maintain a robust back-testing and production environment. QuantConnect overcomes this by offering a cloud-based platform that is pre-loaded with the data and back-testing capability that is needed to test strategies. However, the really cool feature is that once you are happy with your back-tested strategy, you can actually turn it on live, and even connect it directly to your brokerage account to trade it in real time.” – Deutsche Bank Quantitative Strategy Team
