About

LQG is a not-for profit organisation run for and by its members.

The London Quant Group is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of practical, quantitative investment ideas. It achieves this with a series of Evening Seminars in London together with a one and a half day Spring Seminar in London and a two and a half day Autumn Seminar in Oxford or Cambridge. London Quant is a not-for profit organisation run for and by its members. It comprises a Board of Directors and a Management Committee.

The LQG is very generously supported by BlackRock, Goldman Sachs and Refinitiv

 

The LQG promotes discussion and the exchange of ideas in the field of quantitative investment management.

It achieves this through its seminars, which are known for their open and lively discussion and content that is practical and of topical interest to quant professionals.

The London Quant Management Committee selects material that is original and free of sales content. Papers and presentations are unapologetically quant. You can find out more by emailing us at events@lqg.org.uk or by attending a seminar.
