Correlation One (C1) and The Quant Conference are pleased to announce they have entered into a strategic alliance, combining Correlation One’s expertise in assessing data & quantitative research talent with The Quant Conference’s expertise in organizing one of the world’s leading quant conferences.

There is an intense war for top data and quant talent. Businesses understand that data is key to a competitive future, and they need the best quant and data talent to pave the way to that future. However, the relatively recent emergence of these fields means there is scarce supply of candidates and lack of consistent standards to assess the skills of job applicants. The process of recruiting, resume screening, and technical interviews often falls on experienced quants and senior management, a firm’s most expensive internal resource. Top firms have reported that it could take more than 75 hours of a data science team’s time to hire a single quant.

To solve this problem, Correlation One and The Quant Conference have joined forces to provide an innovative platform which will connect the world’s best quant talent with industry-leading asset managers and quant trading firms. The Quant Conference offers a unique opportunity for companies to recruit vetted quant talent, network with prominent industry leaders and hear from legendary hedge fund managers. Students and job seekers will have the opportunity to take one assessment and be matched with multiple elite employers. The first event of the series will be held in London on November 1st and the following one in New York.

‘The Quant Conference has been conceived as an exclusive Quantitative Research Talent Marketplace which solves some of the core inefficiencies in the recruiting process for quants. Most conferences bring people together, but have no way of differentiating the good candidates from the truly outstanding ones.’ said Nikita Fadeev, founder of The Quant Conference.

‘By leveraging Correlation One’s deep quant research assessment expertise and The Quant Conference’s top caliber student network, we are able to provide a highly differentiated value proposition for employers by not just streamlining the recruiting process but also by helping to identify undiscovered talent’ said Sham Mustafa, Co-Founder, and Co-CEO of Correlation One.

Correlation One is the market leader in assessing data & quant talent. In the past few years, C1 has worked with hundreds of elite organizations and assessed over 200,000 data science and quant professionals from all around the world. Correlation One’s clients including some of the most prestigious names in the industry such as Citadel, Point72, GSA Capital, IMC Trading, Quantport, XTX Markets and Ellington Management.
