What our learners have to say...
"I had enrolled for the CPQFRM course at IIQF. It was six months of pure pleasure learning cutting edge, current market relevant Quant and Risk Management practises, philosophies and techniques. Brilliant team of lecturers coming straight from leading market entities in the Investment and Risk space. After completing this course I was able to successfully realise my desire to effect a career change towards Risk Analytics and Risk Modelling, after almost 13 years of experience. It has given me a successful start and also equipped me to consolidate my career as a result of hands on skills acquired. Not just CPQFRM but other courses also I would say are very apt and highly recommended!!"
"The course on Financial Engineering that I attended at IIQF is one of the best courses available in the Indian market. Much more rigorous than CQF and more Quant Finance orientated than a CFA. It has a wonderful faculty most of whom are former PhDs from Stanford or Professors in Indian Statistical Institute (ISI). The course offers various insights and allows multiple programming languages. It allows Open book Testing culture which allows students to focus on applying the theory to very real problems. This course overall has provided me with a solid mathematical foundation, enabled me to understand how the theory translates to practical problems and finally to get a great offer in a equity quant research team."
"I had attended the Certificate Program in Derivative Valuations and Risk Analytics conducted by Indian Institute of Quantitative Finance. I was previously working with a Registered Investment Advisory (proprietary firm) as a Quantitative Analyst. This program is very relevant for risk professionals with a specialization in OTC valuations. The content of he course is very practical for various asset class derivative valuation models and the codes and resources of the model can be utilized to build a foundation for Derivative Valuation Modelling. Lectures are very interactive with its content being useful for python modelling from scratch and prepare for Valuation and Model Validation quant roles... "
