Through the use of mathematical measurements and calculations, statistical modeling and research, quantitative analysis aims to understand and/or predict behavior/events in terms of a numerical value. It is used for measurement, performance evaluation or valuation of a financial instrument, and predicting real world events such as changes in a country’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth rate. The key advantage of quantitative analysis is that it involves studying precise, definitive values that can easily be compared with each other earnings.
