Champion, Greater China, International Quant Championship
The International Quant Championship is a quantitative trading competition that stimulates the participants’ skills in identifying trading signals. This competition attracts PhD, Master’s and Undergraduate candidates from prestigious universities all over the world. The participants are asked to identify the best weights of stock allocation, based on various kinds of data including company fundamentals, price movements or industry sentiments. Various statistical techniques including regression analysis and time series analysis are applied, in conjunction with overall knowledge in finance, mathematics and computer science. I joined a team with three other CUHK students, whose fields of study were statistics, mathematics and computer science. With the joint effort of all three team members, we successfully advanced to the regional final and won the championship.
