What is A
quant
modeller

As a modeller, you will support corporate decision-making by developing and maintaining quantitative models. A quantitative modeller is expected to have a multitude of skills including advanced knowledge of mathematics, finance, statistical modelling, data mining, and the ability to create computer programs using languages such as C++ or Java. In addition to a challenging position as a Quant Modeller, the Post PhD Program also offers you a personalized program in which you will learn both the technical and soft skills required to shift your academic career to a business focused career.

What are your activities

as a quant modeller?

Together with a team of talented colleagues, you will develop the next generation of models. These models not only need to adhere to regulatory standards but will also strongly contribute to the survival of the organization. You will perform data analyses to find logical connections with the help of SAS, Matlab, R, and/or Python, and prepare data requirements for the development of the models. Your day-to-day responsibilities include:

 

  • Investigating the best methods for modelling risks or pricing
  • Developing models through regressions, stochastic methods or other investigated techniques
  • Calculating capital impact of the new model
  • Documenting model development process and results
  • Making an inventory of the possibilities to implement the model in IT systems
