Big Data is another exciting evolution in quantech which is extending the range of application of quantitative skills. Big Data technology is shifting the attention of investment arms of banks (trading, proprietary investments, strategists, high frequency) from the search for economic skills to the search for technology skills.

This new knowledge base is exploring microstructure, order book models and the capability to extract information from unstructured data. Even market makers and risk managers are using it to detect anomalies in sensitivities computations or to capture market abuse and headline risk.
