After a career in product strategy for a leading provider of financial information and analytics, I am exploring opportunities in algo investing. My expertise is in quantitative finance and software product management. I specifically focused in FX risk management in my previous job, and now researching quantitative investment opportunities across all asset classes. Learning Python programming the hard way by testing new ideas on QuantConnect!
