About the NUS Quant Challenge


The NUS Quant Challenge is a two-week competition held from 25 March to 8 April 2017. The event will start with a live, hands-on training session conducted at NUS’s campus.

The objective of the challenge is to create high-performing algorithms for stock-price movement prediction.

During the competition, participants will have an opportunity to develop alphas (or mathematical predictive models) using WebSim.


Participants can benefit from an educational perspective through live and recorded training sessions.

WorldQuant will provide a free onsite training class on the use of the WebSim platform for participants at the start of the Challenge, on 25 March 2017 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. This hands-on training will cover the following topics:

Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop computer for the training.
