Trading in the 21st Century

Quantitative Investment Society is an investing club at the University of Michigan dedicated to researching and educating its members about the emerging field of quantitative finance. Together, we develop algorithmically driven trading strategies typically employed by quantitative hedge funds along with the tools to evaluate them using our proprietary data. We were founded in 2018 by four computer science students, who went onto found their own hedge fund startup.





Build, develop and create the infrastructure that powers our algorithms and enables strategy development. Stress-test our trading strategies with scenario analysis, build APIs that interact with financial data providers, and deploy trading strategies in the cloud.
