Our Mission

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.
