"Building a Quantitative Hedge Fund"


Some of the more successful financial entities today are funds in which equities are traded on the basis of quantitative methods borrowed from the physical sciences and related areas. Broadly speaking, this is the area of finance termed “econophysics”. I will explore some of the conceptual issues involved in quantitative trading methods, particularly in high-frequency finance, as well as the practical issues in relevant computation, data acquisition and management, organization, project development, and fund-raising.
