QuonWarrene

Neal Quon and Blane Warrene founded QuonWarrene in 2009. The two have spent their careers in the financial services industry, bringing a combined ‘street smart’ front office and back office expertise to the firm.

The two saw a significant gap emerging as technology took center stage and have designed a methodology for unlocking the quotient in a financial business.

Quotient – a degree or amount of a specified quality or characteristic.
