Potential employers

UNB’s Master in Quantitative Investment Management (MQIM) program “… will enable students to best apply quantitative and analytic skills in a technology- and innovation-driven work environment,” says Sherri Kinch, TMX managing director, talent development and business effectiveness.

As buy-side firms shift to a quantitative finance approach, professionals with quantitative investment skills are highly sought after by employers such as pension funds, hedge funds and insurance companies.

Here in New Brunswick, Vestcor Investment Management Corporation has a team of quantitative investment management specialists.

We are proud to partner with Vestcor Investment Management Corporation and Seamark Asset Management Ltd.
