QuoteOriginally posted by: pb273I have been interviewing many candidates for quite a few quant roles (for New York) for the last 6 months, and given what I get, I can tell you that out of every 20 guys, 12 are Chinese, 4 are Indians, 2 are Russians/East Europeans and only 1 is French and the remaining 1 is rest of world incl Brits & Americans.12 Chinese!!!! Based on that sample, does it mean that they are more chinese quant than any other nationality? Nothing against chinese, ther are hard-worker and probably deserve it, but I though the language barrier- might be a handicap for them -they can write very well in English, but often have problem expressing themselves. It is not really their fault; their native language, not based on latin, is so different from English hence the difficulty. Working as a quant often require ongoing communication with traders and the management.
