UPDATE

With the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) now established in the US, Princeton University has determined that an intensified response is necessary and has limited the number and size of campus gatherings and meetings until at least the April 5 2020, with some activities being held online. Due to this, The Princeton Fintech and Quant Conference will be held virtually. Detailed instructions will be sent via email to all the registered participants.

Our Mission: The Princeton Fintech and Quant Conference seeks to bring together a unique cross-section of the leading experts from academia, industry, and government in a relaxed intellectual environment to catalyze discussions and strengthen ties across traditional boundaries. We will cover subjects ranging from high-frequency algorithmic trading and statistical arbitrage to model construction and validation. This event also provides a unique opportunity for leaders and students in quant trading related fields to directly interact. The student and young alumni organizing committee is exclusively volunteer and 100% of all proceeds go to support education nonprofits fighting for economic mobility for underprivileged students. We’re building a legacy for the conference that extends beyond the ivory tower into the greater community.
