Quant Trader at Citi

over 2 years ago
When in college I spent one summer in the risk department of a commercial bank, and was conducting due diligence for the business loan portfolio. I was guided by an internal document that lined out the risk management framework. I was okay with intuitively understanding the rules but felt curious how people develop such frameworks (and how different parameters lead to better financial performance). That drove me to pursue further studies in quantitative finance and to get on the quantitative trading route.
