We are pleased to invite you to the 2018 IIT Stuart – Princeton Fintech and Quant Conference at IIT Stuart School of Business in Downtown Chicago, IL. The conference will feature speakers and panelists from leading trading firms, banks, and hedge funds from around the country, as well as from financial technology firms and startups. Our speakers will provide real fintech and quant insights from the trenches. There will be opportunities to network with leading professionals and fellow top students and gain an insider’s view of this fast-paced and exciting sector of finance and technology as well as learn about internship and employment opportunities.
The biggest trend right now in the Fintech space is blockchain technology. While Database and Networking technologies have evolved separately over the years, blockchain is at the intersection of these technologies and it enables systems that maintain a single version of data across a network using consensus algorithms. These consensus algorithms are based on cryptography concepts. This year’s conference will feature speakers from this space as well as educational talks and workshops.
Over the past seven years, we’ve brought together more than 120 high-level industry professionals and 2,500 students in Princeton and in Chicago to discuss the leading trends in quantitative trading. This year’s spring conference will take place on Saturday, October 20th, at the IIT Stuart School of Business in Downtown Chicago, IL. Below are just a few of the companies that have been represented and recruited at previous conferences:
- JP Morgan
- Deutsche Bank
- Two Sigma
- Princeton Alpha
- Domeyard LLP
- Portfolio Effect
- Byte Academy
- and many more…
