Q&A: What is a Quant?

(noun) A financial analyst with strong programming and numerical skills; someone who develops models/systems to assist the activities of traders and risk managers. a.k.a. rocket scientist.

A cause and effect of Quants can be seen with the rise of exotic derivatives on Wall Street: such securities bring more Quants to the industry, who in turn create more such securitie themselves.
