Summer Alphathon™ - 2017 Summary
The Summer Alphathon 2017 has drawn to a close, and the competition was extremely tight — with three contestants each scoring more than 300,000 points.
Congratulations to all who participated! Special kudos to Elizaveta from Russia for achieving the winning score of nearly 382,000 points. Excellent job!
The WorldQuant Challenge provides interested participants with an opportunity to test their investment ideas using WebSim, WorldQuant’s web-based market simulator. Qualified participants earn points by identifying high-quality predictive signals or mathematical models — what we call Alphas — and these points can lead to Bronze, Silver and Gold status.
WorldQuant’s Alphathons are all about “Getting to Gold.” In the Summer Alphathon, 87 contenders from 6 countries achieved Gold status during the two-month competition. Congratulations!
For those who achieved Gold in the Summer Alphathon and are interested in our Research Consultant program, you will be contacted by a representative from your local WorldQuant office to discuss next steps in the onboarding process. We look forward to seeing great results from all of you.
If you were not able to join us for the Summer Alphathon, don’t worry — the WorldQuant Challenge is a year-round competition, so please continue your efforts and pursuing your quest for Gold. We are always looking to bring new, highly qualified individuals onto our global team of Research Consultants, and winning a seasonal Alphathon is certainly not the only way to earn a spot on the roster.
