Helping people of all backgrounds gain access to cutting-edge financial tools and expert investment advice
Dr. Matthew Jones is a registered investment advisor, and the founder & CEO of Quants Compete. His quantitative approach to finance began with his early interest in mathematics and science. He earned both his bachelor’s degree (2000) and master’s degree (2004) in mechanical engineering at Clemson University. It was there he began to notice how seemingly unrelated subjects shared specific fundamental principles. This sparked within him a deep curiosity about these connections, and so, he went on to earn a Ph.D. (2011) in physics at Auburn University. It was in this environment that he really began to explore the relationship that exists between physics, mathematics and finance.
Since then, Dr. Jones has held positions including: a university professor, an entrepreneur, and a systems engineer. All the while, he continued to apply his understanding of physics and mathematics to the stock market. However, personal financial achievement took an entrepreneurial turn when Dr. Jones noticed that larger financial brokerages were dramatically reducing their commission fees on stock and option trades. It was at this moment that he saw an incredible opportunity for people with smaller accounts to participate in the stock market.
Dr. Jones is excited to help people achieve their financial goals as quickly and efficiently as possible. Most of all, he wants to level the playing field by offering cutting-edge financial products to everyone.
This inspired Dr. Jones to found Quants Compete – an unprecedented marketplace that drives competition between Quants (quantitative finance analysts) all to the benefit of small account holders
