Quantitative analysts or “quants” use a variety of data to build algorithms and computer models following mathematical and statistical approaches. Thanks to advances in computing technology, quant investing has flourished over the past two decades. Automated trading strategies dominate financial markets today and smart beta factor investing has taken off commercially. Meanwhile, newer approaches using big data are gaining acceptance as more data becomes available digitally.

Although these are explicitly quant approaches, quantitative techniques in varying degrees are used by almost all investment firms. This is trend will only accelerate in the future. Truly, we are all quants now.
