Un articolo di Maggio 2017 del Wall Street Journal (link alternativo) descrive il mondo dei quants o quantitative analysts e come il loro ingresso a Wall Street abbia cambiato l’industria.
Prognosticators imagined a time when data-driven traders who live by algorithms rather than instincts would become the kings of Wall Street.
That day has arrived. In just one sign of their power, quantitative hedge funds are now responsible for 27% of all U.S. stock trades by investors, up from 14% in 2013, according to the Tabb Group, a research and consulting firm in New York.
Quants have almost caught up to individual investors, which outnumber quants and collectively have 29% of all stock-trading volume.
