Artificial Intelligence and quantitative investment techniques are disrupting investment management in unprecedented ways. We are seeing the evidence all around us. In the hedge fund industry, 8 of the top 10 largest managers are now quantitatively focused. More and more fundamental managers are announcing their adoption of quantitative and AI techniques.

Investment professionals who know how to implement AI tools are in demand, yet there is a gap in training and education for those wanting to enter the field. Though it is not hard to find general AI classes and non-technical finance classes, it is not easy to find these two disciplines successfully integrated. Moreover, AI in investment management is different and more complex than AI applied to non-investment disciplines, and the tools are rapidly evolving.

By assembling a faculty comprised of the rare breed of academic thought leaders and practitioners of AI in finance, supplement with other global thought leaders in AI, AIFI seeks to help students use these cutting edge tools effectively in their investment careers. The certificate will demonstrate a world class education and competency in what will be the future of investment management that will be revered by investors and asset managers.
