You are invited to attend the Princeton Fintech & Quant Conference Webinar Series this upcoming academic year. Due to Covid-19, they have decided to host a series of virtual events rather than an in-person conference which typically takes place in Chicago and Princeton each year. 

The series will feature speakers and panelists from leading trading firms, banks, and hedge funds, financial technology firms and startups. The primary focus of their talks will be around the current financial climate, as well as relevant trends taking place from technological and quantitative perspectives. Students will also be able to connect with our featured speakers and learn more about internship and employment opportunities. 

Over the past seven years, we’ve brought together more than 120 high-level industry professionals and 2,500 students in Princeton and in Chicago to discuss the leading trends in quantitative trading. This event will take place as a series of webinars on Saturday, 9 October 2021, 11:00 AM – Saturday 6 November 2021, 4:00 PM EDT. There will be a total of 2 webinar dates during the upcoming academic year. Notable speakers for this seminar include:
