15 Dec MIM Holds Finance Seminar
Morgan Stanley Exec Explores Concepts of Measuring and Using Trading Algorithms
On November 1, 2018, the Manhattan Institute of Management (MIM) held a finance seminar that was attended by over 85 professionals. The seminar was hosted by Professor Thomas F. Coleman of the University of Waterloo.
The seminar was held by Heath Windcliff, who is the head of the Quantitative Research team at Morgan Stanley, which is responsible for equity algorithmic trading research and development.
During his highly engaging presentation, Mr. Windcliff discussed the factors that he looks at when measuring trading engine performance with respect to algorithms. He also covered several common benchmarks and common “blind spots” for professionals in this industry.
The attendees of this seminar came away with much valuable and relevant knowledge. By leveraging its Wall Street location for such seminars, MIM continues to be on the cutting-edge of financial education.
