What are the best sources of quantitative finance research in equities?

I will list a couple and note an asterisk if the research is available by request (i.e. non-clients) or online:

  1. BAC-Merrill Lynch - Savita Subramanian

  2. Deutsche Bank - Yin Luo*

  3. Credit Suisse - Pankaj Patel

  4. Barclay's - Matthew Rothman

  5. HSBC - Ely Klepfish*

  6. Goldman Sachs - Quantitative Strategies

  7. Neuberger-Berman - Wai Lee

  8. Nomura - Joseph Mezrich

Perhaps there are also more un-conventional sources of quant research besides sell-side wall street:

  1. Hussman Funds - John Hussman*

  2. Emanuel Derman's collection of papers

    $\begingroup$ Should we make this a community wiki? $\endgroup$ – Tal Fishman Aug 9 '11 at 4:51
  • $\begingroup$ Good idea, although I'm not sure how to do do that. Feel free to edit if n'ecy. $\endgroup$ – Ram Ahluwalia Aug 9 '11 at 4:55
  • $\begingroup$ I've converted to community wiki. $\endgroup$ – chrisaycock Aug 9 '11 at 8:46
  • $\begingroup$ Shouldn't we modify the question so that is doesn't specify the Equity asset class but Quant Finance in general? Or should I create another question? $\endgroup$ – SRKX Apr 21 '12 at 20:33
  • $\begingroup$ @SRXX - The research sources vary by asset class. Only 2 of the folks on the list above cover derivatives for example. $\endgroup$ – Ram Ahluwalia Apr 22 '12 at 15:42

Sell Side

  • Macquarie Quant - Venkat Eleswarapu

  • JPMorgan Investment Strategies series
  • Societe Generale - Alain Bokobza



Quantivity's "People of Quant Research"(mirror) has quite an exhaustive list (albeit not exclusively equity-orientated).

    $\begingroup$ Not a bad list overall, but it seems kind of random and idiosyncratic. Even though my PhD advisor is on the list, I think there are a number of people there that are not necessarily at the top in terms of practical quant, and also a great many practical quant guys missing. No offense to quantivity (I enjoy the blog), but the list seems overly driven by whatever has happened to capture quantivity's interest over the years. $\endgroup$ – Tal Fishman Aug 10 '11 at 16:35
  • $\begingroup$ You should add quantivity's twitter feed. I check it every day. $\endgroup$ – John Jun 16 '12 at 23:49
  • $\begingroup$ @John Looks like twitter.com/quantivity?lang=en isn't active anymore $\endgroup$ – Franck Dernoncourt May 28 '17 at 21:53
  • $\begingroup$ @FranckDernoncourt Sad. It was a good resource. $\endgroup$ – John May 30 '17 at 0:11
