Because France provides some of the best Quants in the world, and the French expertise is internationally recognized,
Because it is often difficult, for the smaller management firms to identify academic partners, to attract high profiles - although many are trained in France, often they prefer more to relocate to London or New York,
In the post-crisis, quantitative management professionals have created the QuantValley association in 2010, an ecosystem sustainable and responsible, to promote quantitative finance and its contribution in terms of research, risk management and creating value for investors.
With the support of ENSAE Paris Tech, the Institut Louis Bachelier and the University of Paris-Dauphine, this project builds synergies between business, academe and market authorities in order to set up an excellence in research.
To do this, QuantValley associated with GFI and UBS, launches a Research Chair “Quantitative Asset Management Development” managed by Gaëlle Le Fol of the University of Paris-Dauphine and hosted by the Fondation du Risque headed by André Lévy Lang.
The next major step of QuantValley, Paris - 2020 City of Quants, will be of offering investment vehicles that allow investors to invest across the range of funds offered by QuantValley’s fund managers : an index, a managed account platform ... and maybe eventually becoming an incubator. It is about creating a virtuous circle that will benefit all partners in Paris.
The hub of quantitative management in Europe is born. It's all here and that its future is being played. It's up to you to join QuantValley!
