比赛简介

WorldQuant Virtual Research Center will be launching multiple university-level Alphathons, which are part of the WorldQuant Challenge, for students in a number of universities, which are listed below. This would give students from these universities an exciting opportunity to learn about quantitative finance and data science. 作为 WorldQuant挑战计划的一部分,WorldQuant虚拟研究中心将会在中国下列的大学中开启面向大学生的WorldQunt校园量化建模挑战赛。这将为学生了解量化金融和数据科学提供一个优质平台。

The WorldQuant Challenge provides interested candidates with an opportunity to test their ideas and develop high-quality financial market signals (alphas) using WebSim, WorldQuant’s web-based simulation platform. Qualified candidates earn points by creating alphas — and these points can lead to Bronze, Silver and Gold status. Individuals who achieve Silver and Gold status may be considered for research consulting opportunities with WorldQuant. WorldQuant挑战计划会为感兴趣的同学提供一个寻求构建高质量信号(即alpha)来预测金融市场走向并回测的平台(即WebSim)。合格的候选人在平台上创建alpha以累积分数,以此达到铜,银,金的等级。达到银和金等级的候选人有机会被考虑纳入到WorldQuant的量化研究顾问项目中来。

比WorldQuant挑战计划更吸引人的是,校园量化建模挑战赛会给予每所学校的前三名达到金等级的完赛者一次性特殊奖金,当该完赛者具备成为一个研究顾问的资质后。

  • Top Scorer: The top ranked participant in the Alphathon for his/her university will be considered for a one-time special stipend of up to USD $500 in our discretion.

  • #3 Scorer: The individual whose final total score ranked third in the Alphathon for his/her university will be considered for a one-time special stipend of up to USD $200 in our discretion.
