Quant finance and risk sites worth checking out:
- Northstar Risk Corp.:
My firm, and in my opinion the best third-party
risk management software for the hedge fund industry.
Also home to a small but growing collection of risk research papers.
The Global Association of Risk Professionals. The largest, most
recognized risk association there is and sponsor of the Financial Risk
Manager (FRM) exam.
Probably the most popular and comprehensive website dedicated
to quantitative finance. The forums
are a great place to search for answers to questions. If you can't find
what you're looking for, ask nicely and somebody will likely answer
your question before too long.
Another great quantitative finance site with great forums and a
SYMMYS is devoted to quantitative risk and portfolio management. SYMMYS
was founded by Attilio Meucci. He has published some great papers (well
written, innovative, and extremely relevant). He is also a great
presenter. I have heard only good things about the quant bootcamp.
Web site design tools:
Building your own site is not hard. The following are links to resources that I have used:
The site was primarily designed using KompoZer, a good
wysiwyg web authoring tool. The application is still a work in
progress, but the price is right (free).
This site is hosted by FatCow.
Cool name, good tech support, no complaints.
