Jose Reyes

...An excellent program with a lot of good material and videos...

Paul Besanger

...I found the amount of material rather large but it is that you need if you want to implement something with added value anyway. Despite this large amount and underlying complexity sometimes, Attilio manages to give the intuition of all models... Obviously, all the guests you managed to gather is quite unique. The organization is great. The exercise classes were actually useful for me for to understand details I had not understood previously…Thank you for the enormous amount of time you devoted to this seminar and your endeavor to share your valuable knowledge. I hope your initiative will inspire other people...

Thomas Littlefield

...I thought the ARPM Bootcamp was terrific. I will definitely recommend it to my colleagues. More would have attended this year but unfortunately August is the end of the federal fiscal year and the budget was tight. Hopefully with some forethought money can be allocated for more people from my group to attend next year...

Winston Bradley

Tina Viljoen

...It is an excellent course. I believe that I can truly benefit from the course. More specific to my situation, is the combination of theory and practice. I think it would be great to promote this course at Universities. I have come across this course via Matlab and also shared it with my colleagues. The lab is very nice and I am looking forward to see all the topics added to the lab. A big thanks to Angela that emailed the work that she did each day, which is very helpful. The gala dinner was excellent. Especially to hear all the quants talking. I did look forward to that. Thank you for this course. I will definitely promote it wherever I can. I hope to see you in Australia one day...

Laurent Hoffmann

...The ARPM Bootcamp is a great course which I will highly recommend to anyone seriously interested in risk and portfolio management. Attilio did an amazing job in teaching complex material clearly and trying to follow up on questions until the very last minute. Having lectured in the past I bow to his everlasting endurance and enthusiasm. The review sessions nicely complemented the lectures and helped getting a grip on technical issues. The course, including the talks and the cocktail party were very well organized and all staff members were incredibly helpful. Unbelievable that all of this was almost for free. Finally, the fact that proceeds go to 'One More Reason', a charitable initiative, deserves my utmost recognition and respect. Thank you Attilio and the ARPM staff...

David Valencia

...Excellent program, very intense but worth it...

Jorge Rosales

…Excellent course overall…

Claudia Freiji

…Attilio Meucci is not only knowledgeable, but he is as well endowed with the talent of transmitting his knowledge to others with clarity and passion.

Anshuman Sinha

...The ARPM Bootcamp was excellent! The instructor's breadth and depth of knowledge was pretty amazing. I loved getting a bird's eye view of all the topics and I loved that he kept going back to the main checklist and kept giving us a sense of the overall picture. I intend to take the exam and will hopefully gain a deeper understanding studying for it...I loved Attilioミs use of PCA to understand and visualize what's going on with the joint distributions, I loved how we first tried to find the invariance so we could get some reasonable parameter estimates, I loved the stress testing and risk attribution sections, as well as the Black Litterman treatment. I really enjoyed the ARPM Bootcamp and I look forward to implementing some of the techniques at work. Thanks a bunch!!...

Giuseppe Buccheri

Federico Mentigazzi

...What I can say of Attilio is that he has at least twice the brain as the average of his peers and he knows how to use it well, unlike many other lecturers. He is not living on a cloud, neither over the clouds, but he stays at our level, down to earth. The easy ways he uses to interact with people and communicate hard and subtle concepts demonstrates not only that he has a sunny Mediterranean blood, but that he is mathematically unique...
