LIFE & WORK

We believe in revolutionizing the financial industry with collaboration and radical openness, empowering people and harnessing the creativity of a talented community. We do this by sharing beautiful open-source engineering with an organic community of quantitative finance professionals from around the world.

Do One Thing At A Time

Only ever do 1-2 things at a time and do them well. It can be tempting to start a new project when things get hard on the one you're working on, but see it through to completion, and think of creative ways to move the project along. Don't let a barrier become an excuse to start something new!

Blame Rarely Matters

There's no point wasting time or energy thinking who's to blame. We want people to feel comfortable accepting responsibility and working together as a team to fix the system. Focus on what we learned and avoid it in the future.

BALANCE

We have an infinite list of incredibly hard problems to do, all with seemingly critical deadlines. It can be hard to weigh that pressure with the time we have to fulfill it. QuantConnect is not quite a cushy big-tech yet, we're a scrappy, lean start-up fighting against almost impossible odds, but we still need to sleep. We ask people to give everything they can Monday to Friday 8-12 hours a day, focus and work expediently on the challenges presented, and in return, we commit to not intruding on the weekends and after-hours time. You'll be promised the space to completely switch off.

It's Not Done Until Its In Production

“Done” isn't pull-requested; “done” is in production being used by users with supporting documentation. For marketing, “done” is queued up on the blog/pr-platform with a scheduled release date or being read/watched by people. There's always a way to get things done if you put your head to it.

Plan for the Future, Execute in Steps

We always think 5 moves ahead, where we will be in 2 years, and execute that vision in small achievable steps to move us in the direction of the final goal. We don't need to ship the perfect product all at once, but we need to be headed in the right direction.

Do the Hard Things

Almost every challenge we face is incredibly hard. The level of technology and nuance in this sector keeps us on our toes daily. It can be tempting to find the shortcuts and make a fast solution to the challenge at the cost of long-term maintenance. Take the time, do the job right and solve it the “right” way. Do it first.

Every Message Delivers Value

Every time we communicate with our community we deliver value in our message to our readers. We don't engage in pure promotional or one-sided messaging. Readers should come away having learned something new or tangibly benefited.

Design in Teams / No Lone Rangers

We are a team in all senses. We share the blame, responsibility, and credit. When designing something loop in a team member and volley ideas back and forth, the end result will be a much more mature and well-thought-out concept.

Our Mission

LINUX OF FINANCE

I took some time recently to renew my vision and recenter on the core reason we built QuantConnect. In the end, it was simple; we are in service, we empower creators to build, and we trailblaze the open-quant wild-west. We pioneer when everyone thinks it is crazy. We’re an innovation engine, breaking open access to the world of quant.

Focusing on this core why I can see a 5+ year future with QuantConnect, scaling to make it the ubiquitous infrastructure of quant. We can solve and open-source critical modeling and integration challenges of quant investing, helping millions of people and thousands of funds worldwide. Our infrastructure will make quantitative investments safer, more efficient, and earn better returns.

We’ve always said we’re going to be the Linux of finance, but what does that mean? Tangibly we should be the operating system-level architecture of finance, built to run a global ecosystem of financial applications (investments, fintech). A good operating system performs most of its work invisibly - connecting storage, display, and network hardware from disparate manufacturers into a single experience. Through defined standards and open code, hardware manufacturers implement drivers and tests in Linux pre-releases to ensure a smooth user experience. Today, Linux-based servers run 97% of the world’s computers.

This operating-system metaphor has impeccable parallels to our work. Just like Linux kernel memory management and multi-threading, complex financial modeling is a sensitive problem that should be solved once, open-sourced, and leveraged to make millions of people’s work more efficient. There are millions of dataset integrations and thousands of brokerage APIs to connect — that are ultimately required plumbing like hardware device drivers. That plumbing should be addressed in an open-source way by the vendors to save developers millions of hours. Most vendors stop at creating a REST API or an SDK today; I believe tomorrow they’ll stop once they’ve integrated with LEAN.

By 2030 I believe we can be the infinity cloud quant engine, with every data source, every asset class, and brokerage integration. Taught in every university and powering thousands of funds. We won’t just be 10x better than alternatives; we will be 10,000x better. Who still considers writing an operating system? Funds will interview in LEAN and accept LEAN algorithms for job applications to reduce enormous training and recruiting costs. Fund infrastructure will be a mix of open-source and closed-source modifications, with everyone running a LEAN V8 engine under the hood. Individuals will have access to the same powerful, low-cost infrastructure.

HOW DO WE GET THERE?

To create this open-finance vision, we need to scale the execution of our current “kernel”, and four pillars: education, datasets, licensable code, and brokerage integrations. This comes down to:

  • Free Quantitative Education Programs
  • Free Access to Financial Data
  • Low-Code GUI with Market of Code Components and Strategies
  • Massive Data Cache with 2000+ Linked, Formatted, Alt Data Sources
  • All Brokerages Ready for Live Trading on World-Class Cloud Infrastructure
  • Financial Modeling Challenges Solved and Open Sourced for All Asset Classes
  • Data Ingestion, Security Linking Challenges Solved and Open Sourced
education

Education

Create a guided 6-month comprehensive, interactive, and free quant training program, onboarding, and publishing batches of quants each week. Introduce talent-hungry quant funds to a stream of LEAN-educated graduates. Outreach program for universities and clubs to provide them with high-quality educational material for use in their classrooms, along with free QuantConnect infrastructure. Train thousands of minds each week.

datasets

Datasets

Launch paid dataset incentive program to scale dataset marketplace from 50 datasets to 2,000+, eliminating ETL (extract transform load) to save engineers millions of hours of meaningless work. Users can onboard and test new data with a single line of code. Acquire a US Equity data license and provide free US Equities data in a LEAN format to funds building in our ecosystem.

code

Code Licensing

Build a low-code interface to open QuantConnect to non-coders such as sophisticated traders and portfolio managers. Lowering the difficulty of assembling high-quality quant components will increase our audience of consumers 10x. Publish a marketplace of code components covering alpha, universe selection, portfolio, execution, and risk code blocks. Encourage community creation of code modules with revenue sharing.

trading

Trading Integration

Expand brokerage integrations from 20 to 400 to cover every major brokerage and exchange globally, including international markets. Register as an introducing broker and share commission revenue with brokerages. Expand LEAN financial modeling to support all major asset classes and derivatives, with solid first approximation fee, slippage, and fill modeling.

WHAT BUSINESS SUSTAINS THIS WORK

A core theme of our strategy so far is that information should be free, but people will pay for convenience. The last two decades have shown software, and data businesses are mostly driven to commoditization. In the next few years, I believe we’ll see financial data available for its lowest cost, with many of those data businesses expanding into analytics to prepare for the future.

We can scale charging for the convenience of our cloud service and maintain cost-comparable cloud infrastructure with healthy margins. We will fine-tune our conversion funnel to score and tag leads and build a marketing+sales team to pursue larger commercial deals. We can develop a series of business solution packages, for an end-to-end offer for business clients.

Leaning into the commoditization of quant technology will assist in LEAN capturing market share and not leave air for proprietary quant technology or competing clouds to breathe. We should open-source the “device driver” data and brokerage integrations to encourage study by vendors and maintenance by the community. Such a strategy requires faith that we’ll consolidate the market under the LEAN ecosystem and that a significant part of the market will opt for convenience.

Each pillar will have its own revenue model. Brokerages will provide commissions on trading volumes and marketing projects to subsidize user infrastructure costs. Datasets and Code Modules can be sold through a hosted marketplace. Course completion certificates for our educational program can be issued to our graduates to reply to job advertisements posted in the QuantConnect community.

We’re at the peak sales volume, client base, and industry recognition that we’ve ever seen. All achieved with a ridiculously “duct-tape” sales and marketing infrastructure. Yet despite that, QuantConnect grew sales from 400k to $1M, 250% in 2021. What would it look like with more than 1 person on the UX team? Any actual marketing team? An actual sales team? What if someone led the university educational efforts full-time? Doing anything else other than doubling down now would be an enormous waste of the potential pent-up in the company and recognition we’ve developed.

WHAT'S NEXT

If we execute this vision, the long-term future of finance will be markedly different from the current status quo. I’m excited to see the legacy we’d leave the world.

We can probably execute the plan without funding, but the timeline would be 10+ years and leave room for competing platforms. Condensing this to 5 years requires fundraising to give us the freedom to execute and retain good people for the hard work we need to do.


IT IS

2030

The QuantConnect round closed in early 2022 In
the last 8 years, the world has changed.

All brokerages are integrated and open-sourced to LEAN, with the integrations being driven by the brokerages.

alternative datasets are onboarded and imported with a pip package installation. With the installation driven by the data vendors.

A stream of talented people graduates from the QC Jump Start program each week, feeding the talent and job demands for companies building on LEAN.

Alpha and code licensing from a library of millions of code snippets enable rapid prototyping and deployment of powerful investment strategies by a range of investment professionals.
