Investment banking has long been at the forefront of adopting niche
languages ... I know people who worked on APL in banks, and now J (http://www.jsoftware.com/
) and Q (http://kx.com/Products/kdb+.php). Even Perl was big in the
finance industry, before the web brought it into the mainstream. If
you want to work on real world problems (and asset allocation is a
real problem) then this is the place to be... Until the rest of the
world catches up.
