The hedge fund we are working with are one of the most attractive to join in London. Their culture is one that blends high performance with a supportive and friendly atmosphere. They are relatively new but already established firm who have a highly enviable reputation in the market. As they are still relatively small, there is great opportunity to work on greenfield projects and work directly with extremely senior stakeholders in the business. This role will involve working closely with the CRO, Quant team and Data team.

They are looking to add a Risk Analyst who has the ability to take on significant responsibility in a role that includes risk analysis, data engineering and quantitative development-based work. As a result, the fund is looking for a candidate with an adaptable mindset who is keen to work in broad and dynamic role. There is a focus on the forward potential but the candidate should have a foundation of strong Python programming skills and a knowledge of interest rate derivative products from an investment risk perspective.

There will be substantial ownership of responsibilities from an early stage in this position so the successful candidate will be someone who enjoys such pressure and who is capable to working to high level on an independent basis.

  • 1-5 years' experience working in a fixed income Risk Analyst / Quant Risk / Risk Data Engineering role
  • Top tier Education - specifically a MSc from a globally renowned (top 10) University in a highly quantitative subject (Maths, Stats, Physics, Computer Science etc). A PhD would be advantageous
  • Strong Python programming skills (as a functional language, not just scripting)
  • Applied knowledge of interest rate derivative products
  • Strong communication skills both in person and in writing
  • Entrepreneurial and positive mindset

This is a unique opportunity to join a top hedge fund in an environment that allows for skillset development (supportive senior colleagues) and excellent chances for owning responsibilities and associated career progression.

This is a fund with which we have an excellent and long standing working relationship, so are able to go into significant detail with relevant candidates.
