My name is Andrea La Rosa and this blog is about finding quantitative ways to analyse and gain an edge in financial markets.

I am Italian and have been living in the UK since 2009. I’m currently working as quant strategist in an Asset Management / HF. In the past I worked as a quant on the prop desk of an investment bank and had a couple of other quant roles here and there. My background is in Physics and Financial Maths.

With this blog I want to share opinions and thoughts with interested readers and other fellow practitioners, with the belief that this would also help me think in a more ordered and concise way.

I always welcome the opportunity to meet and collaborate with new people.

    Found your blog after reading your thoughtful post on CSS. Great work, keep it up! I also work in a quant fund trying to find ways to incorporate insights/world developments/swans to recalibrate or straight up modify our allocations. Look forward to reading through your posts!
