Summer Alphathon™ - 2016 : No Longer Active
The Summer Alphathon TM has now concluded. Congratulations to all who competed successfully and those who have as well joined the global team of Research Consultants!
The overall winner, Quan D. from Hanoi, Vietnam representing the Hanoi University of Science and Technology, received a $5,000 stipend upon becoming a Research Consultant and achieved a score of 667,602 ! Congratulations Quan , we look forward to seeing great results from you as a Research Consultant.
Participants in the Summer 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 Summer 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!
