TopQuants – the networking organisation by quants for quants based in the Netherlands -wishes you all a very happy and successful new year 2015. We will be publishing our spring 2015 newsletter by the end of March. The TopQuants team would like to thank all the authors and the Quant community for their continued interest in the newsletter.

We aim to present technical research articles, personal blogs, surveys, interviews, book/journal reviews etc, in the area of Quantitative Finance. We also intend to provide a coverage of the talks given in the TopQuants workshops with highlights on additional work done by the speaker in that specific area. We further encourage PhD/Masters students to share their research work and thereby network with the Quant community in The Netherlands. The overall intention of the newsletter is to benefit people who have a Quantitative Finance background related to various industries like banking, insurance, pension funds, asset management, energy etc. We are very much open to new ideas or suggestions regarding the contents of the newsletter and your input is more than welcome!
