New Quant Tools Democratize World of High Finance

There is a revolution taking place in quantitative finance. The average person, those without advanced degrees from University of Chicago, Harvard, MIT or London School of Economics, but those who might have unique market insight, is being given opportunity previously reserved for the PhD class.

Making this opportunity possible is an increasing array of quant-driven and algorithm tools and platforms that democratize the cult of high finance.

A voracious consumer of information, the accomplished entrepreneur picked up the book The Ivy League Portfolio by quant blogger and author Mebane Faber, who also runs his own hedge fund.
