Ron Piccinini, Ph.D.

Ron’s expertise is quantitative analysis and business strategy. After experiencing large gains and losses as a young trader, Ron became obsessed with using computers in contrast to emotions to better manage market risk. He wrote his dissertation on heavy-tailed distributions using neural networks in 2004. From 2005 to 2012, Ron held positions of increasing responsibility at well-known financial firms, where he worked on risk estimation, management and systems. In 2012, Ron co-founded a cloud-based risk analytics company, later acquired by a software company serving the needs of RIAs.

Ron works with RIAs, TAMPs, banks and clearing firms to increase the value of their businesses through effective risk management and mitigation. In 2018, Ron founded a quantitative analysis consultancy, and has now joined forces with Q Consulting as co-founder and President.
