Some of the early quantitative methods included the successful identification by Yale mathematics professor Benoit Mandelbrot of patterns in cotton prices in the 1960s. From this and subsequent investigations, Mandelbrot developed the theory of fractals, which applies to such divergent phenomena as turbulence in liquids, the structure of plants, and the behavior of markets.

Quantitative investing – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quantitative investing represents an investing technique typically employed by the most sophisticated, technically advanced hedge funds. These quant shops employ fast computers to find predictable patterns within financial data. Some of the larger quant shops include but are not limited to Renaissance Technologies’ Medallion Fund, D. E. Shaw, Barclay’s Global Investments (now known as Blackrock), Numerics, GMO, First Quadrant,Robeco, etc.

Typically, quant investing is implemented by people who have spent time in the physics, math, computer science, or statistics disciplines. The condensed results of quantitative analyses, however, can be readily accessible to all far-from-quantitative investors, when presented in an intuitive framework. For example, “The Quant Investor’s Almanac 2011: A Roadmap to Investing” (Wiley, 2010)[1] brings quantitative investing strategies to everyday investors without scientific background.

The process consists of thorough examination of vast databases searching for repeating patterns — persistent occurrences of a phenomena, correlations among liquid assets (“statistical arbitrage” or “pairs trading”), or price-movement patterns (“trend following” or “mean reversion”).
