In this episode of WealthTech Unwrapped, Ned speaks with Chris Shuba, Founder and CEO of Helios Quantitative Research.
Chris delves into two fundamental principles shaping his business approach. The first involves breaking down elements in finance into modular parts, enabling infinite combinations for scalable, customized solutions. The second highlights the strategic importance of creating multi-purpose content to yield value through interconnected actions.
Chris delves into the concept of luck in entrepreneurship and acknowledges instances where Helios benefited from strategic collaborations and supportive relationships. He emphasizes the importance of being perceived as a partner rather than a vendor, especially in the financial advisory space. The conversation touches on the challenges of being a quant in a volatile market, the changing landscape of asset management, and their long-term commitment to solving evolving problems in the financial industry.
