Job Role
Contract Type
Full Time
Our client is currently running a multi strategy fund and they are looking for someone to work with them to enhance their returns.

The role is a mix of quant research and trade analytics, as you are trying to predict their performance and help them improve it.
Currently trade analytics is being carried out by the head of portfolio risk and optimisation and head of trading - both of whom have experience in equity portfolio management and trading.
As they are continuing to grow they want someone to take the lead on the product and interface with both the PM's and the business.

Responsibilities include:

• Post trade analysis of the PM's trading.

• Presenting the data/visualising the data

• Project management, follow up's, and working with the PM's on further analysis.

• post trade attribution & behavioural analysis

• Presenting conclusions to management and internal stakeholders

This person needs to interpret the data, understand SQL and explore the results.
You need to be able to understand the language of the PM's and the practical side of running a book.
Whilst you do not need to be a developer, you should be familiar with data, be able to take a review, analyse their trading patterns and run reports

Ideal background:
Either someone that has worked with PM's or even run money themselves + someone who can code/understand the systematic investment process.
It's essential that you have equity experience, understand what the PM's do, what they trade and how you can improve it.
TCA/Trading analysis skills are a plus however this is not a TCA/Execution focussed role.
The role will incorporate elements of analysis, attribution and data science

Applicants should be approved to work in the UK.
