Quant Finance Algorithmic Challenge: 15:00 – 18:00 (CEST)

Q&A and online networking: 18:00-19:00 (CEST)

This online challenge involves taking part in a live trading simulation game that will give you an insight into the world of quantitative finance. The event will be run by our Quantitative Researchers and Machine Learning Specialists, who will share their knowledge about the industry and how a mathematical skill set can be transferred into other areas outside of academia.

The game is based on continuous blackjack. In teams of 2 to 3 you will play multiple rounds and try to beat the dealer.

Register your interest by emailing with the subject: Lyon Remote Case Study. In your email please specify your University, Subject, Degree Programme (BSc, MSc, PhD etc.) and your expected graduation date. If you are registering as a team, please provide the same information for each member of your team. 

Once you have registered you will receive a unique link to join the event which you should use to log in by 1:45pm, so that you can meet your teammates and learn how to navigate the online event space. The day prior to the event, you will be emailed further information on how the afternoon will run, so please look out for this. The winning team will receive a £200 voucher for Amazon! 

One of our Quant Researchers will explain how the trading game works, the details of each round and what you will need to do.

Please note, you will need a fully charged laptop, good internet connection on a chrome web browser/safari and headphones to take part.
