Hi everybody,
I have been reading the postings on the site for a while and I look forward to put my two cents in. My background is in CS and Math, working for a number of years in equities and derivatives, and currently preparing to get into a MSFE program.

Hi, Cristian:

I hope the posts in this forum are helpful to you, no matter they are about application, finance, sports or other fun stuff. I am looking forwards to reading your posts in this community in the future. Since you already have work experience in the industry, I would like to listen to your opinions on various finance topics in finance forum. Exchanging opinions is great fun, isnt it? :)

Best,

Thanks for the warm welcome guys!
My work experience is in IT, with some occasional interactions with quants and traders. I have contemplated the idea of getting into a FE program, but didn't do more than just read some books and articles,too busy writing code.
Past year and a half, since I joined the equity derivatives group at BofA, I realized the need to know more, a lot more, about risk mgmt and pricing models, and this is how I decided to get back to school.

Does BoA have quant positions in Charlotte? I really want to get back to the South East! I grew up less than 2 hrs from Charlotte.

From what you said, getting into an FE program is definitely a way to go! Best of luck :)
CS and Math is one of the best mixes (if not the best) for FE.

Charlotte is a very busy city :) BoA must have something there. In fact, I myself will be looking into that next year or so. Check BoA's website for career opportunities. At least, you'll get an idea what they are looking for.

Yesterday I found out that even TIAA-CREF -- a pension fund -- has quants. Looks like every reputable finance company has quants :)
