Oliver Cooke joins panel on diversity at QuantMinds International

Date: 03 April 2019

We are delighted to announce Oliver Cooke, Managing Director of North America, will be speaking at QuantMinds International. Taking place in Vienna on 13-17 May, QuantMinds International is now in its 26th year and is the world’s leading quant finance event. 400+ experts from banks, buy-side, regulators, Silicon Valley, academia and beyond join together to learn, network and share expertise on the biggest issues facing the industry. Hear the latest breakthrough research and latest technical case studies from some of the world’s most revered quant thought-leaders.

Oliver will be on the much-anticipated panel, Diversity in Quant Finance: Examining the Route to Progress, to discuss how our clients attract, retain and develop diverse talent. Last month, QuantMinds International shared that only 8.3% of quant professionals globally are women. Oliver will join Jessica James, Managing Director at Commerzbank; Katia Babbar, Founder of AI Wealth Technologies; and Birgit Rudloff, Professor of Mathematics for Economics and Business at WU.

“Quant is one of the areas where diversity is lacking in regards to female talent,” said Oliver Cooke about the industry. “We’ve seen some progress in recent years, but there’s still a lot of work to do. Every single one of our clients is concerned with improving the diversity of their workforce, particularly now that there’s a wider consensus that diverse teams produce better results.”
