Princeton Fintech & Quant Conference Series

  • Remote Access Enabled - Webinar
  • Virtual Presentations
Career Presentation

We are pleased to invite you to attend the Princeton Fintech & Quant Conference Webinar Series this upcoming academic year. Due to Covid-19, we have decided to host a series of virtual events rather than an in-person conference which typically takes place in Chicago and Princeton each year. 

The series will feature speakers and panelists from leading trading firms, banks, and hedge funds, financial technology firms and startups. The primary focus of their talks will be around the current financial climate, as well as relevant trends taking place from technological and quantitative perspectives. Students will also be able to connect with our featured speakers and learn more about internship and employment opportunities. 

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 event will take place as a series of webinars from Sept 26, 2020 to May 7, 2021. There will be a total of 9 webinar dates during the upcoming academic year. Each webinar session will feature 3 speakers covering quantitative trading and fintech topics from a variety of perspectives. Purchasing an Eventbrite ticket will give you access to attending all of the webinars via Zoom. Currently, our confirmed speakers include:
