Together with our partners, WBS Training Ltd, we have launched a new certificate programme for quantitative developers.

The objective of the course is to develop fundamental skills of quantitative developer role. The course is of an introductory level and does not require programming experience. The course is designed by practitioners from quantitative finance with experience in model development for derivative pricing and systematic trading.

The primary coding languages of the course are Python and C++. As it is essential in finance to work with time series data, we introduce the kdb+ database and the language q, which are the leading solutions for storing time series.

The course consists of 5 Modules:

  • Python for Finance
  • C++ fundamentals and use cases from quantitative finance
  • Data Structures and Algorithms in C++
  • Databases in Finance: kdb+
  • Design of systematic trading platforms

Throughout the course sample test questions from quant/developer interviews will be provided.
