Financial Mathematics Graduate Students Win IAQF 2019 Competition!

Congratulations to “Team Under Canvas” and “Team WH101”, winners of this year’s International Association for Quantitative Finance (IAQF) Eighth Annual Academic Affiliate Membership Student Competition. Out of 48 teams from 20 academic institutions, two of the final five winners are our own Financial Mathematics Master’s students!

Each team was asked to develop a model to determine the credit spread of US investment grade corporate bonds over US Treasuries.  The teams’ projects were chosen through a blind, multi-level selection process and were reviewed by an IAQF Board Member judging panel.  The winning teams will return to New York City on October 21st to present their work at the IAQF meeting.
