Hi everyone,

If you're interested in a buy-side quantitative finance career, or just would like to try your hand in statistical arbitrage signal development, you might be interested in participating in this Alpha Research Competition we are running,

If you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer.

Didn't someone say someday: "We are all americans"?

If you are not living on the edge you are taking up too much space.

Well, that one was expected and not surprising. Let's see:

1) "You agree to execute all documents and do all acts that may, in Sponsor’s opinion, be reasonably necessary or beneficial to carry out the provisions of this Assignment or to secure, protect and enforce the foregoing rights."

2) "participation in this Competition constitutes each Participant’s consent to Sponsor’s and its agents’ use of Participant’s name, image, likeness, photograph, voice, opinions, statements, biographical information, Trexsim Account display name, if any, and/or Participant’s school, hometown and state for purposes of promoting the Competition, Trexsim Platform, or Trexquant, in any media, worldwide, including display on its website, without further payment or consideration, in perpetuity, without notice or review or approval."

3) "Participants agree and acknowledge that personal data submitted with an entry, including name, mailing address, email address, and telephone number may be collected, processed, stored and otherwise used by Sponsor and its affiliates for the purposes of conducting and administering the Competition and for marketing purposes."
