Quant Insight appoints new advisory board member and adds to sales team


Quant Insight (QI), a macro analytics firm that applies innovative quantitative techniques to financial markets, has appointed Garrett Curran, former CEO of Credit Suisse UK, as the latest addition to its Advisory Board.

QI has also expanded its sales team with Dominic Bidwell and Rik Tremerie joining in QI in September and December 2017 respectively, reporting to Ernest Van Vredenburch, MD of Sales. 
Launched in January 2017 following three years of technological development, Quant Insight provides quantitative analysis and actionable investment ideas to hedge funds, asset managers, pension funds and wealth managers. QI combines investment expertise with high-quality data, proprietary algorithms and AI driven machine learning models, helping institutional investors make sense of complex trading environments, make better investment decisions and ultimately improve performance. 
Curran joins Quant Insight’s Advisory Board with 22 years’ experience in investment banking, both in London and New York. Most recently, Curran was CEO of Credit Suisse in the UK and the bank’s Chief Client Officer in EMEA, whilst also managing and supervising their Global Markets EMEA client business, with responsibilities spanning strategy, operational management, supervision, culture and senior client relationships. 
Bidwell joined Quant Insight in September 2017 as Head of Equity Sales, with 30 years’ experience as an equity Salesman and Sales trader looking after long only and hedge fund clients based in the UK, Europe and the US. Tremerie joined Quant Insight in December 2017 to oversee Multi Asset Research and Sales for QI. He joins from Credit Suisse where he was a senior Director responsible for fixed income and derivatives distribution to Northern European real money.
With the latest appointments, Quant Insight has doubled the size of its team throughout the course of 2017 in response to a fivefold increase in business growth year on year, with more than 100 large global hedge funds, pension funds, asset managers and smaller family offices now subscribing to QI’s macro quant insights. 
Mahmood Noorani, Founder, Quant Insight, says: “Our consistent growth in 2017 is a clear indication that active managers are looking for fact-based, and not opinion-based, macro analysis to make better investment decisions. At the same time, we are addressing the significant changes in the investment landscape due to MiFID II, including the consumption and format of research, and the need to provide a more distilled and interactive approach for our clients. We look forward to working with existing and future clients to improve the investment process for portfolio managers and help them make sense of today’s complex trading environment.”
Garrett Curran, Quant Insight Advisory Board, adds: “The scope for, and pace of, technology-led disruption in financial services will continue to increase, and I believe Quant Insight will be at the forefront of innovations in asset management and securities trading and research.”
