National Best Team, International Quant Championship
We fondly remember the days we worked arduously around the clock on delicately designed alphas, which are models that use historical data to predict the future price movements of financial instruments. The International Quant Championship was a very rewarding experience for us. In reflecting on the process, we find ourselves deeply grateful for the QFRM programme at CUHK. By dint of the ample financial, mathematical and programming knowledge that we acquired in class, we triumphed over more than 10,000 teams from all over the world and won the National Best Award in our presentation in Beijing during the national final stage. Apart from what we achieved, we really enjoyed the moments when we were working hard together in the CUHK library, trying to apply the many brilliant ideas we had learned in class, ranging from different financial theories to mathematical equations. That breadth and depth of instruction is what we have found unique in the QFRM programme.
