Rates of Pay for Quants,Algos,Risk,Traders,Asset Managers, Structurers, & Strats.

We at P&D are carrying out a confidential pay survey for those that use maths in their job. So far it’s had well over 4,000 responses, & takes 3-5 minutes to complete which allows us not only to publish stats on what people are paid but give you better advice when you ask us.

The survey is at http://bit.ly/koFj1Q and uses Surveymonkey so we don’t get to see your name or email, just the numbers.
If you’ve got any questions about the survey or want to ask about particular results that affect you, let us know
thanks,

Pay Survey for Quants, Strats, Traders, Structurers, Economists, Risk, Algos, Hedgies, Fund Managers, and all who use maths in finance

Pay Survey for Quants, Strats, Traders, Structurers, Economists, Risk, Algos, Hedgies, Fund Managers, and all who use maths in finance.

It’s ironic that currently those who do numbers for banks have such poor quality numbers to work out whether they are getting the market rate..
Since the Quant group now has a high % of people in these areas we are doing an anonymous pay survey.

http://svy.mk/letqkA

It’s completely confidential because we use a 3rd party SurveyMonkey to collect results. We don’t ask your name, and if it turns out that a given segment has too few people in it to mask the identities of those who respond we won’t publish that result.
That’s not really likely, now that the first week has given us 2,2000 responses.

Why should *you* bother filling this in ?
It is only 3-4 minutes, mostly just clicking boxes with easy questions in them.
We’ve had people test it just to make sure it doesn’t suck up your life with vast arrays of imponderable nonsense.
This is a field with lots of specialisations, and one factor can make a significant difference in your pay, which means if you don’t respond, the numbers for people just like you won’t be quite as good, and I hope I don’t have to make the case for having good numbers for important decisions.
We will of course be publishing interesting results from this survey on Wilmott.com

Efficient Valuation of Complex Derivatives on the GPU
Dr. Andreas Binder, MathConsult GmbH
In the pricing and risk analysis of structured financial instruments, numerical methods for valuation, as well as calibration of the model parameters, have to be implemented very carefully. The calibration often leads to optimization problems for which local algorithms do not converge. We present an efficient hybrid global/local algorithm and compare them to global optimization.
