EP 052: How quant strategies are created, scrutinized and introduced to the market w/ Ernie Chan
This week I had the great pleasure of speaking with Dr Ernest Chan, from Toronto (Canada).
While many traders in the quantitative arena will already be familiar with Ernie, here’s a brief intro…
You could say, Ernie had somewhat of an unconventional introduction to trading – he started out on a research team at IBM, using machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques, teaching computers to understand human languages – before joining a prop trading group.
Today, Ernie has upwards of 15 years applying similar techniques to the domain of finance and trading – working with multiple prop firms and hedge funds across his career. And currently, Ernie is the managing member of QTS Capital Management.
