In person





The QFP (Quantitative Finance for Professionals) by QUANTURK is a capacity building initiative and continuously developed training programme that is tailored to the everyday needs of finance professionals. It comprises several quantitative modelling courses that are taught by qualified instructors with a solid quantitative finance background.
