Overview

The Advanced Risk and Portfolio Management (ARPM) Quant Bootcamp is an intense training that:

  • Provides a broad overview of modern quantitative finance, across asset management, banking and insurance
  • Enables understanding of inter-relationships between topics across theory and implementation
In operation since 2007, the Quant Bootcamp has thousands of Alumni from around the world, including industry leaders and academics.

Delivery

The Quant Bootcamp program consists of lectures, live Q&A sessions and exercises sourced from the content of the ARPM Lab, as well as guest speakers and networking opportunities. It will be presented from August 10-15.
You may choose between attending in person (**) or through a interactive streaming presentation from the comfort of your home or office. An on-demand version of the Quant Bootcamp is also available, which you can view at any time.
If you purchase the Quant Bootcamp Streaming you will also have access to the On Demand materials. If you purchase the Quant Bootcamp in Person you will also have access to the Streaming and the On Demand materials, as illustrated below.

(**) The Quant Bootcamp In Person is unavailable in 2020 due to COVID-19.

The Quant Bootcamp Streaming is delivered via an enhanced version of ARPM's Learning Management System (LMS).
The Enhanced LMS allows Bootcampers to view the lectures and review sessions, participate in Q&A, chat and polls and access recorded versions of the lectures when the Bootcamp is not in session. The LMS will be integrated with ARPM Lab, so Bootcampers can access the Lab contents (theory, case studies, code, etc.) in the same interface they are using to view the Bootcamp sessions.
