Gresham has hosted two DISCnet students so far, with placements exploring a number of different projects such as data-cleaning/filtering, investigation of price prediction models, portfolio construction approaches and data visualisation. The placements provided students with experience of working in a small, entrepreneurial, and collegial team and gave insights into the world of systematic trading and the mathematics, statistics, and data science underpinning the qualitative finance view of markets.
