The QuantMinds community

QuantMinds International is a truly global gathering of leading minds in quant finance, a tight-knit community of inspirational professionals who are passionate about their pursuit of all things quant.

Our mission in 2021 is to go further than ever before - bringing together 300+ quants comfortably and safely onsite in Barcelona and enabling these 300 professionals (plus any other quants who aren't able to join us onsite) access to the sessions on demand after the event.

Meet and connect with quants from banks, asset managers, insurers, institutional investors, hedge funds, tech firms and academia.

Network like never before

We know that after such a long time apart, you want to share ideas and collaborate with fellow quants in a way that is much tougher digitally.  

So, we are redesigning QuantMinds' Face to face experience.  Here's how:

  • More detailed case-studies and interactive workshops to enhance learning
  • Extended and exclusive Q&A time with speakers so you can ask the questions you need answers to
  • More small group interactive working groups for information sharing and idea cross-pollination
  • More time for 1-1 meetings
  • More closed door board rooms - safe spaces to share whats really on your mind

Technical workshops

At QuantMinds 2021 you have the opportunity to supplement your learning at the main conference with a selection of additional pre- and post-conference summits and workshops:

  • Volatility Workshop with Bruno Dupire - Monday 6 December
  • Machine Learning in Finance with John Hull - Friday 10 December
  • Hands-On Differentiable Programming with Uwe Naumann - Friday 10 December

Your safety is our priority

Our number one priority is bringing the risk management community back to a face-to-face event safely.

We are working with local authorities, venue partners and suppliers and continually adapting to the latest guidelines and safety protocol.

And we know there's uncertainty in the world right now that may be delaying your decision to book your place. So click here to see how we're giving you extra flexibility and peace of mind when booking.
