“Quant is another word for wild fucking guess with math”

Mike “Wags” Wagner of Axe Capital said on the Showtime television series Billions, on the episode “A Generation Too Late” that aired on April 8, 2018:

“Quant is another word for wild fucking guess with math.”

A “quant” (quantitative analyst) is a person who uses mathematical and statistical methods to solve problems in the field of finance. Wagner’s line became popular when it was published on the financial blog Zero Hedge on April 13, 2018.


Wikipedia: Billions (TV series)
Billions is an American television drama series created by Brian Koppelman, David Levien, and Andrew Ross Sorkin, starring Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis, that premiered on Showtime on January 17, 2016. The series is loosely based on the activities of crusading federal prosecutor of financial crimes Preet Bharara, the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and his legal battles with hedge fund manager Steve Cohen of S.A.C. Capital Advisors.

The occupation is similar to those in industrial mathematics in other industries.
