This is a key front-office role responsible for developing and maintaining the platforms' strategies. You would work closely with products developers, sales, trading and fellow strats to develop and implement a robust platform which can accommodate hundreds of bespoke indices.

The role will cover the full spectrum of index development and support, including implementation in the front-office modelling system, index methodology documentation, product development, parameter analysis and robustness testing, integration into front-office pricing and risk models, ongoing support for production indices and risk systems, and working with the relevant sales and trading teams on marketing and risk management.

  • Strong academic background in a quantitative or technical discipline.
  • Advanced coding and software design skills in any recognized programming language e.g. Python, Java, C++.
  • Understanding of basic financial math concepts, e.g. Black Scholes pricing and strong interest in finance.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Comfortable managing multiple stakeholders, demonstrating initiative and showing commercial impact

Additional Requirements:
  • Experience within Equities, specifically single stocks.
  • Experience implementing or developing systematic strategies.
  • Experience developing and supporting risk systems.
