IDEAS is the blue-sky quant research group run by Roy Demeo. That's why they hire experienced quanters.I believe the other group is just the desk quant group.Unless you're some sort of academic hotshot in math finance you're not going to get into the IDEAS group.

They hire mostly experienced, as I recall. I applied to them for entry-level, and that led to an interview with a desk at MS (I took another position instead).

Any tips for knocking on the doors of Canadas big banks?

St. Petersburg paradox

Yeah, yeah. Just having a bit of fun with the new guy. But in all honesty the mistake of saying that f(E(X)) = E(f(X)) is a bit much.
