What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Leda Braga has earned the nickname “the queen of quants”. After a PhD in engineering from Imperial College London, she spent seven years at JPMorgan as a quant the bank’s derivatives research team. After a stint at a start-up spun out of JPMorgan, the Brazil-born Leda then helped establish one of the industry’s leading systematic trend-following funds at Michael Platt’s BlueCrest.

In the wake of eye-popping financial crisis success - the flagship BlueTrend fund made 43 per cent in 2008 - Leda spun out Systematica into a full-fledged standalone hedge fund group (though she reluctantly retired the Ducati motorbike). As chief executive of Systematica she has ridden through a tough time for trend-surfing systematic funds and solidified Leda’s reputation as a bold-faced name in the quant industry.

In this wide-ranging discussion with our guest presenter, the FT’s Robin Wigglesworth, Leda explores everything from gender balance in hedge funds and how “algorithm aversion” is no longer spooking investors to the different forms of trend-following and how quant is the future of the investment management world – whatever the old guard may say.
