Quantitative trading has grown exponentially in the past two decades and has redefined the way trading takes place in the exchanges today. Although this is particularly true in the west, India too is witnessing a similar trend. Quants control less than a third of trades in Indian exchanges, but the pace of growth indicates that they eventually will dominate trading in the country. The spread of quants is giving rise to a new set of roles and jobs in this space, ranging from developers to traders to data scientists and more.

In this webinar, we will explore the career opportunities that this space has to offer and the skills that it demands. Join us to know how you can make a career in this exciting industry.
