Summary
Firsthand accounts from the people who were swept into, and then helped fashion, today's "quant-driven," dynamic world of finance
Quants are the backbone of today's investment industry. Their mathematical models are now the basis for most financial market innovations, such as exotic derivatives, structured investment products, quantitative trading strategies, and portfolio selection. Their spectacular successes and failures have become part of market folklore. But what they do, and how they do it, is often as opaque and hard to understand as the formulas they create. In How I Became a Quant, more than two dozen quants tell their war stories and detail the unexpected paths they have followed from the halls of academia to Wall Street, revealing the faces behind the quant revolution.
