In this 2nd episode we meet one of our other DSAi members in James Bailey, a Manager of Quantitative Finance Solutions at global consultancy Deloitte and who also runs education for the association as well as having written a number of articles you can find on the DSAi blog.
We learn about how he got started in data working for a trading desk and how quantitative analysis helped propel him to where he’s at in his career. We talk about the soft skills needed to bridge the gap between technical members of a company and the business side and how there is more of a need for these types of analytical folks in organisations. These lessons and more are inside so check it out
