Student Investment Fellowship
Kwantx offers part time and full time fellowships in the fields of investment analysis, quantitative research, and software engineering. Individuals work on investment related projects with supervision from core team members. The fellows are encouraged to participate in company-wide faith events, such as prayer, philosophical, and theological discussions. We aim to make an impact in the investment industry and wider community.
Investment analysts research data related and investment strategy literature to help outline strategy feasibility. They will have exposure to the process for preprocessing financial data, understanding literature of strategies, and creating a framework for a quantitative model.
Software engineers are exposed to data pipelines, software design, and trading functionality in python libraries. They gain experience by working on the end to end trading processes for algorithmic strategies.
Researchers work on the end to end pipelines of quantitative strategies, from ideas to data extraction and statistical modeling. The researcher reviews literature and builds frameworks for simulating strategies over historical data.
