NO BACKGROUND_edited.jpg

Developed by quants from Hedge Funds

I'm Henry Chan, one of the founding partners of Asia Quant Academy. My passion for quantitative models and programming started early, as I was fascinated by the sheer speed and accuracy of analysis that I could achieve by creating powerful models. 

Holding a Bachelor’s degree with double majors in Computer Science & Mathematics from HKUST, I secured offers from Goldman Sachs, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, and even Citadel. Understanding early on the high growth potential of quant roles, I strategically chose more rewarding roles suited to my skills than a traditional IB career. Later I pursued a Master in Statistics degree at HKU.

Through my current role in a Hedge Fund as a quant and quant developer, and my prior role as the Assistant Vice President at Credit Suisse (Quant Research & Quant Developer - Algorithmic Trading), I know that the high demand for quant specialists has escalated quickly, and there’s a lack of professional and practical quant training in Asia. 

Hence, I co-founded Asia Quant Academy with HKCareers and other quant trading / research insiders to demystify careers in quantitative research and trading, for university students

AQA's Quant program is designed for practical financial use, based on our years of work experience in quant trading, quant research, and quant engineering. We’ll arm you with the competitive quantitative skills and practical exposure of interning with global hedge funds, unlike other online programs that focus on academic aspects.
