A multi-billion dollar buy-side is seeking a quantitative analyst to join their group to improve overall book performance through transaction cost analysis and algo execution research.

This is a unique position in a highly regarded US fund to conduct market microstructure analysis, TCA, algorithmic execution strategy design, and market impact modelling (pre & post trade) for portfolio managers.
