Software used for quantitative analysis in the financial services workplace, and the perspectives of graduates, employers and academics

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractResearch

Abstract

For quantitative analysts working in the financial sector workplace, skills in using software for model development, model fitting and quantitative analysis are essential. The financial services industry is a significant employer of graduates from quantitative disciplines such as Actuarial Science, Mathematics, Statistics and Econometrics as well as financial disciplines such as Economics, Finance and Accounting. In this talk we report on an investigation of the use of software for quantitative analysis in the workplace by recent graduates and compare this to the software used at university for training these same graduates. We sought the opinions of recent graduates, their employers and academics who were involved in the education of these graduates. We used questionnaires for this purpose.
