The Quantitative Finance Stack Exchange
is intended specifically for professionals
and traders working in investment banking,
and academics involved in teaching and research.

Topics include pricing of securities, derivatives,
options, risk modeling, quantitative techniques, and
the mathematics used in quantitative finance.

Several members of the R/Finance community are active there too.  Some names you may recognize: Patrick Burns, Shane, Dirk Eddelbuettel, Jeff Ryan, and Paul Teetor.
