Hi Muhammad Ariq,
Assalamu Aleikum,

Hope all is well, brother.

Were you able to find an answer to your question? I want to work as a quantitative developer in the future, which still falls in line with what you do, but on development side of things.

I am unable to find a just answer; I really want to learn more about this field and hopefully work in it and in need of clarification.

If you have any insight please do share. Thank you for your time.

JazakAllah Khair,
Muhammad Hamza
