Note all 5 questions must now be answered in order for you to be approved for the group. #1 What is your interest in QF ? Why are you drawn to it ?

I am a wannabe Quant with a history in analytics. I am interested in learning risk management

What do you hope this group will do for you?

I'd like to network with other qualitative analysts whoa re in the field and can lend professional wisdom to my journey

The main purpose of this group is for local NY/NJ Quants and Quant wannabe's to meet in person or discuss on the message board. Would you be interested in actively participating on the Message Boards or meeting in person?

Yes especially in person but also on the boards. I am new, but anything I know, I'll share.

What is your professional background ? What was/is your careerpath to QF ?

26 years of work. 7 years as a lead reporter at a Fortune 10 communications corporation, with a focus on deep dives and primarily using front end SAP and Excel. I've earned my MOUS Certification. About to learn SAS, paying out of my own pocket.

The Wilmott Forums, and Nuclearphynance are great online financial engineering communities. The purpose of this group specifically is to encourage active group participation. Have you RSVP'd yet YES/NO/MAYBE for our next event?

I had not heard of them before this. I have not yet registered for them.


My name is Renard Steele and I have 26 years work experience. I come from the fine arts initially, with a BFA in Creative Writing. The past 7 years I have re-applied my entire left brain and discovered I want to be a professional quant.

What Renard S. is saying about this Meetup Group

So far so good. I anticipate learning what's left though, a road map if you will, to know I am on an applicable path without paying an arm and a leg.
