In the trading world, quantitative analysts are especially in demand. The 21st century has seen an explosion in the popularity of electronic trading based on numerical algorithms.
A quantitative analyst is a professional who uses quantitative methods to help companies make business and financial decisions. Investment banks, asset managers, hedge funds, private equity firms, and insurance companies all employ quantitative analysts, or “quants,” to help them identify profitable investment opportunities and manage risk.
