What is a quantitative analyst?

Quants or quantitative analysts are math addicts who do "tough math" to develop new pricing models, risk measures and hedging systems. These models are then used by traders to assess the value of their financial assets more accurately, and more generally to mathematically manage their operations. Quantitative analysis is the outcome of financial mathematics including probabilities.
Thanks to quantitative analysts, hedge fund traders and managers can manage their portfolios more easily by optimising between risk and possible profitability.
