MDI’s Delta: The Quant – Derivative Trading Club is being set up to promote the knowledge of quant-based trading. While value investing is widely studied and discussed, the idea is to promote the spirit of quant-based trading tools. It is driven by enthusiasm to promote the spirit of trading beyond the classroom learning. It provides a platform for the like-minded people to learn and implement. The club also works towards imparting the necessary skills among the students to empower them. Club aspires to build a fund of its own, it would be one of its kind in the B-School community. This will provide an opportunity for students to work as a trader within the perimeter of B-school even before they end being the one in the industry.
