Code Willing is working with the academic sector to advance research in the field of Quantitative Finance.
Quantbot Technologies LP, a global quantitative hedge fund and Code Willing client, is constantly looking for new research opportunities and partnerships but is often restricted due to the highly proprietary nature of their work. With Code Willing managing the Quantbot data and cloud infrastructure, it enables Quantbot to engage external research teams via consulting arrangements. Through the use of the Code Willing technology suite, Quantbot can provide tightly controlled access to clean data and the virtually unlimited resources of cloud computing infrastructure.
Recently, Quantbot worked with several student groups participating in a month-long MIT Sloan 2019 Finance Research Practicum course. The students performed real research for Quantbot in a secure environment running on Amazon AWS with strictly controlled access to the clean datasets they needed.
Without the Code Willing platform there’s really no way we would have been able to host these projects. Now we have the ability to run almost limitless amounts of additional research projects with no risk of impact to our internal systems.”
