Our courses are designed to survey some of the sophisticated mathematical trading ideas from the academic world. From these published papers, we learn how to think about wealth management mathematically. We become equipped with the essential quantitative skills, and get well trained in using the relevant technologies.
Our courses are designed to make the more useful yet rather inaccessible mathematics concepts, such as stochastic control, SOCP, easy to understand and thus accessible to you when designing your trading strategy. More importantly, the focus of our mathematics courses is on teaching mathematical thinking, namely translating a trading intuition into solid equations, rather than on formulas or mechanical computational rules.
Learning a programming language (Java/C#/C++/etc.) is not about learning the constructs and syntax. A professional programmer writes not only functional code that machines can read but elegant code that humans can read too. Writing elegant code is an art like painting or composing. Our courses are designed to teach professional programming from the basic to the advanced techniques. The focus is on writing code that is solidly objected-oriented, unified/consistent, and testable.
During our journey to learn about quantitative wealth management, we have discovered three essential skills: (1) mathematics, (2) programming and (3) creativity. Mathematics is what translates a trading idea into well-defined meaningful symbols. Programming is what translates the mathematical symbols into lines of code for trading research and execution. Creativity is the source of inspiration and intuitions.
CQI Pte. Ltd. has the vision to promote rational investment and trading using mathematics and technologies. We offer the best value continuous training and education for capital market professionals.
It is very difficult to find people who can produce elegant code for mathematical models. In general, mathematicians do not write good code and computer programmers do not understand the (advanced) mathematics. Yet, computer language is what we use to turn an idea into a product that people can actually use. We foresee that the truly valuable talents are those who have creative ideas and are able to implement them. They are the most-sought after candidates in quantitative finance.
