NewMR has launched a survey to look at what quant research techniques are in use. The results will be presented by Sue York at the NewMR Advanced Quant Event on July 14th and will be written up as a brief report, which will be published here and on the NewMR.org website.

After you complete the survey you will be taken to a page with a link to the top-line results so far. At the moment the average time taken to complete the survey is 7 minutes.
The main purpose of the survey is to provide some feedback on what techniques are in heavy use, which in occasional, and which are truly specialised. We hope that this information will be helpful to people planning their career development. For example, all but the most determined qual researchers should look to be comfortable with the most frequently used techniques, anybody wanting to specialise on quant research should probably aim to be reasonably comfortable with the middle group, and only those with a passion or interest needs to feel that that should master the less commonly used techniques.
