What does a Quantitative Researcher Intern do?

Quantitative researchers perform mathematically based technical configurations and designs that help financial services firms and investment banks make decisions while mitigating potential risk. They study, plan, develop, and deploy models and systems involving intricate and sophisticated statistical formulas. These models serve as simulation tools that allow the firms and advisors to anticipate the risk of various scenarios and decisions, making these tools a valuable asset in a risk mitigation and management strategy. These researchers also perform testing and validation tasks.

Quantitative researchers typically have at least a bachelor’s degree in computer science, statistics, or another technical field, although an advanced degree is an advantage. They have extensive experience working with complex, sophisticated statistical formulas and mathematical systems. These roles require highly developed analytical skills.
