This is an interview about Careers in Quant Finance with Christian Kahl, MD, Head of Product Strategy and Client Service at Fincad. Fincad is a leading provider of advanced valuation risk solutions for derivatives and fixed income analytics. Christian holds a PhD in Maths and his career spans 20 years in various leadership roles in quantitative finance.   TIMESTAMPS  00:00 Career Talk: Quant Finance w. Christian Kahl, Fincad  00:17 Introducing Christian and Fincad 02:10 From Maths studies to Quant in finance  03:29 The evolution of quantitative finance education  04:43 The diversity in quant careers  07:37 Christian's approach to recruiting Quants   QUOTES  "Back in those days, a lot of people entered the domain of quantitative finance from a PhD background in mathematics and physics. Part of which is the fact that there wasn't a formal education in financial mathematics, quantitative finance, and definitely a lot less than what we've seen today." "Quantitative finance is a term very widely used across the industry. There are quantitative analysts that sit on the sell side of trading floors writing quantitative libraries in C plus; there are quants in hedge funds supporting various forms of trading activity, trying to get an edge on the market; there are also quantitative analysts in various forms, across risk departments advisory boards, and so forth."   "Client communication is a core aspect of day to day activity [in my team], which somewhat lessens the burden of deep technical skills. It requires us to strike a balance of communication skills as well as technical education."   "I'm a great fan of hiring for talent and potential. And what I'm looking out for in a candidate is a curiosity in mathematics and the skills to learn new things." 🎧More about the Podcast🎧 ► Podcast (audio): https://pod.link/the-fintech-files ►Linkedin https://www.linkedin.com/company/thefintechfiles/ 🔥Community & Education🔥 ►Course on Alternative Investing: https://bit.ly/3mD1Irs ► Join the Discord: https://discord.gg/hArqYBX3v4 ► Alternative Investments Educational Newsletter: https://forms.gle/cJ6AkyyLT7cvhHKQ7 💰Money & Investing💰 ► Blockfi - https://blockfi.com/?ref=cf75f918 (Earn interest on crypto!) ► Coinbase - https://www.coinbase.com/join/alifer_dx (Get $10 in BTC) ► Wise - https://wise.prf.hn/l/7oo8zRE (Transfer up to 500 GBP free) ►SaxoTrader (for options) https://www.home.saxo/en-gb/accounts?cmpid=web_gb_ref&refid=00c3f43a-532f-47ac-922a-33d904baa8d0 👉Connect👈 ► http://instagram.com/fintechorama ►http://twitter.com/fintechorama ►https://www.linkedin.com/in/georges-aliferis-caia-60078312/
