Hi San Franscisco Finance & Trading members,
I wanted to share some exciting updates for this group.
First off, we are under new management! I, along with William Mok are currently the group's new organizers.
Second, we have a new sponsor; Quantopian, (the company I work for) who also sponsors three other Meetup series (in Boston, NYC and the Bay Area) all focused on Algorithmic Finance topics. We were thrilled to have the chance to step in and keep this Meetup group funded and active when that opportunity came up.
Lastly we have two cool upcoming events we want to tell you about. This Saturday Will is hosting a second meeting of his 'Backtesting Day' group. If you haven't checked it out please do and RSVP for this weekend. Next up in December there is a great session scheduled on building stock selection models based on publicly available insider filing data featuring research from StarMine and Thomson Reuters - if you would like to register for that event (as its a cross-post with the Bay Area algo trading group) you will need to follow the link to the original posting page and register there.
We are excited about revitalizing this group and we hope you are too! Please post here or shoot me a note directly if you have ideas for future Meetups, suggestions on venues, or just general feedback or questions.
