Autumn Alphathon™ - 2015 : No Longer Active
The Autumn Alphathon TM has now concluded. Over 5,000 contestants participated from numerous countries and competed for consulting opportunities with potential cash stipends. Congratulations to all who competed successfully and those who have as well joined the global team of Research Consultants!
The overall winner, Svetlana S. from Moscow, Russia representing the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, received a $5,000 stipend upon becoming a Research Consultant and achieved a score of 2,645,000 in just over 60 days! Congratulations Svetlana , we look forward to seeing great results from you as a Research Consultant.
Participants in the Autumn Alphathon TM had the privilege of participating in free training sessions and other educational events to learn about finance, alphas and building predictive models. Many participants with STEM backgrounds left the competition with a firmer grasp on how to utilize their quantitative skills in the world of investment finance. If you participated and did not get an offer for a Research Consultant position with a stipend. don’t worry -- you can still continue building alphas and improving your scores to potentially earn a spot on the Research Consultant team.
If you missed participating in the Autumn Alphathon TM there is good news—the WorldQuant Challenge is a year-round event and you can participate today. We are planning similar incentive-based events in the future!
