George Kaye has over a decade of experience as a quantitative analyst (‘quant’) in the investment banking industry. Starting at Credit Suisse First Boston’s Product Development Group in 1999, George quickly specialised in the field of equity derivatives, building models and infrastructure for the trading desks. In 2006, he left to join the Derivative Analysis Group of Goldman Sachs, where his responsibilities focused on building a methodology for model risk analysis of the firm’s equity derivatives positions. In 2010 he returned to the front office, working in the equity derivatives section of the Quantitative Analysis Group of UBS Investment Bank, leaving at the end of 2011 to build his own derivatives software company.
