Our Story 



Quant World Canada traces its roots back to 2011 when Terrapinn became the first event organizer to fill the growing need for a quantitative investing conference catering solely to the Canadian marketplace. 

The inaugural event united 120-plus delegates from Canada’s leading pensions, banks, asset managers, trading firms, quant funds and vendors to network, strategize and uncover the latest technology solutions powering the industry.

From those humble beginnings, this collaborative forum has quickly grown into the premier event of its kind. Over the past five years, it has played host to globally recognized quant gurus and leading Canadian money managers such as Bloomberg’s Bruno Dupire , Hillsdale’s Chris Guthrie and former CIBC chief strategist Peter Gibson .  

Drawing a bigger crowd each year, there is no better venue for making new connections and conducting business with the likes of CPP Investment Board, OTPP, OMERS, RBC, BMO, Barometer Capital, TD Bank, HOOPP and many more. 

Now, in 2017, with an infusion of exciting new content and dynamic formats including roundtables, panels, inspiring sessions, 1-2-1 partnering and Speed Networking, this year is set to be the biggest and best event yet! 

You should join us too. If you’re not, you’re missing out!
