In 2020

QuantMinds International 2020 was a truly global gathering of 500+ leading minds in quant finance. It's also a tight-knit community of inspirational professionals who are passionate about their pursuit of all things quant.

With closed-door discussion groups, round tables and one-to-one meetings with our digital app, the 2020 conference was packed with opportunities to have the conversations that matter to you, with the people you most admire.

For 2021 

Our mission is to offer you the best of both worlds by bringing together 250+ quants comfortably and safely onsite in Barcelona and enabling these 250 professionals plus any other quants who weren't able to join us onsite access to the sessions on demand after the event.

You can expect to meet with quants from banks, asset managers, insurers, institutional investors, hedge funds, tech firms and academia

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

If you attend QuantMinds in person,  you will have the awesome benefit of on-demand sessions also included in your ticket price.  

Here's what you will now get on top of the face to face event experience...

  • Access to most presentations and panels on demand after the event
  • An additional programme of online only presentations
  • The chance to access a content-rich and interactive platform designed for the global risk management community

Our aim at QuantMinds is to offer an all important face to face gathering whilst also being digital, global, and inclusive.

We’re excited to return to in-person events, but we understand that not everyone will be able to join us in Barcelona this December. We also recognize that many people have come to appreciate the benefits of digitally-available events.

Don’t worry – no matter what your preferences or travel limitations may be, QuantMinds has you covered. We’ll be making as much of QuantMinds digitally available after the event as we can so you can follow along from anywhere in the world.
