Student and Professor, it’s a classic story. Dr. Basilico and Dr. Johnsen’s history goes back to the early 2000s when Elisabetta signed up for two “Quantitative Investments” classes taught by Tommi, a finance professor at the Daniels College of Business, University of Denver. Their passion for applied asset management research brought them together again, when Elisabetta was hired as a quantitative analyst at the pension fund where Tommi was a consultant. They teamed up with JP Tremblay of Standard&Poors to found the Denver based branch of QWAFAFEW, an association of like-minded quantitative finance professionals meeting monthly to share ideas around investing and the research behind those ideas.
