TopQuants – the networking organisation for quants by quants, cordially invites you to its Spring Event on


The event will take place on Thursday May 23rd at 15:00 and will be hosted by NN Group at their global headquarters in The Hague.

At the event we will zoom in on the intersection between quantitative analysis and technology. Do they go together like a horse and carriage, or are there challenges in integrating both disciplines?

The cloud, robotisation, agile, scrum, Kanban, Docker, Jupyter, continuous integration, microservices, CPU vs GPU, Hadoop, Python, R, C++, C#, Java are some terms that many of you must be familiar with and often deal with on a daily basis. Our speakers, covering banking, asset management and insurance, will share which choices their organisations have made, which challenges they have faced and overcome, and which ones they are still facing.

The three speakers at the event will be:

  • Niels Kamphuis (Business Architect, Finance COO / Strategy and Roadmap, ING Wholesale Banking)
  • Roger Lord (Head of Quantitative Analytics, Cardano Group)
  • Remo Minero (Head of Quant Development, NN Group)

To conclude the event, there will be the usual complimentary drinks and walking dinner with plenty of networking opportunities for all participants.

We hope to see you all there!
