100% correct article. True to the core. The little or so quant work is being done by the consulting companies. Most of the work is commoditized/outsourced/canned. Quants are being sold dime a dozen.

Its true that the article narrowly focused on sell side. However, even in buy-side the stat-arb quants aren't making any money to justify the 2-20 rule. The money is mostly going into the index funds / etfs or simple fixed income funds.

That was a very interesting article. The writer has mentioned something that needs to be looked into deep. That was bound to happen in my opinion.
