About Us


QUANTITATIVE WORK ALLIANCE FOR APPLIED FINANCE, EDUCATION, AND WISDOM

The Quant society formerly known as QWAFAFEW re-brands & re-launches as “QWAFAxNEW“! We hope you are as excited as we are … We know from the outpouring of encouragement & support that people welcome our stepping in to save this sinking ship. The re-branding decision was pre-meditated & extensively deliberated by the Steering Committee & our new leadership post-elections in light of the Crisis of Governance that had tarnished the old regime. It was necessary to have a clean break from that sordid past in order to close that dark chapter & boldly charge ahead.
 
As the democratically elected leaders we aspire to the highest standards of governance & transparency; we seek to grow membership, to attract a younger demographic to host better speakers on more cutting edge topics and most importantly to make it fun & collegial once again! For the etymology of the original acronym QWAFAFEW & its intended double entendre (as “quaffing a few”) please see our old website: https://newyork.qwafafew.org/
 
As our new website points out – the choice of our name was motivated by the desire to

a] remain tethered to the parent QWAFAFEW while at the same time charting a NEW course as reflected by the change of a single letter
b] to embody the NEW YORK chapter in the spirit of TEDx &
c] to encapsulate the “exponential” x through the QWAFAx analogous to TEDx
