Quantitative Finance

Welcome to my website! My name is Victor. I started my career as a backend developer before becoming a frontend developer. Currently, I am in the Quantitative Finance Industry.

I am interested in the finance and global markets because it is a world of possibilities. I seek the best way to formulate and implement various algorithmic strategies.
