I’ve had occasion to work with Steve a number of times over the past 10 years or so in the development and buildout of Quantrix models. The use cases that we have presented to Steve have been unusual, and very challenging, very much outside the ususal financial box you think of with Quantrix. I have consistently been amazed at his ability to grasp the conceptual aspects of our problems and of the models we need built to solve them, and of his ability to rapidly craft the model architecture and coding necessary to deliver the solutions we and our clients need. And because of his own extensive business experience, he’s provoked some excellent thought and discussion about where we need to take our models and our products in the future. Steve is also a very easy guy to work with. He’s been very flexible working with us, and he’s very easygoing.
For anyone looking for a really sophisticated help in building models that tackle complex and challenging problems, I heartily recommend Steve Bailey. We continue to work with him ourselves, and expect to indefinitely in the future.
He’s an invaluable resource for us.
