What is Women in Quant Finance?

Women in Quant Finance is a programme of events designed to give women studying for a PhD (or who have recently graduated from a PhD programme) the chance to learn more about working in quantitative research in finance.

As well as gaining a deeper insight into quantitative finance, participants also get the opportunity to build up a network of peers.
