S I L E X is an independent, technology-based asset manager naturally born in 2016 from the desire of market finance professionals to unite their respective expertise for a single purpose: modernising the world of asset management and accompany wealth managers every step of the way, bringing together the best of human expertise and technology.

To provide access to the quantamental turning point that the industry is taking, S I L E X aims to create a set of proprietary tools, gathered in S P A R K, the proprietary digital platform of the company, which offers a range of robust investment strategies, embedding convictions into best-in-class investment processes and risk management.

The mission


At SILEX, it’s all about the data. Data is flowing everywhere to feed our advanced portfolio analytics and pricing platform (SILEX Spark), to search for new market opportunities and to provide first-class service to our clients by notifying them whenever a meaningful change happens to their assets. From financial instruments definition (i.e. stocks, bonds, index, funds, structured products), price information to advanced composition and rating indicators we cover a large scope of key data points.

As a Financial Data Manager, you will be the guardian of this fundamental asset, guaranteeing the availability of high-quality, timely financial data to all the internal consumers. From various external feeds through data quality verification tools, storage in our database using accurate models and publication with secure APIs or exploration tools, you manage the whole Value Chain and monitor it to ensure smooth operations.

Demonstrating a high-level of ownership and a service-oriented mindset, you collaborate closely with Business and Tech to expand the realm of available data and increase automation. You are familiar with financial data feeds and modelling and have some technical skills allowing you to explore a database or perform light scripting tasks when necessary. This role is adequate for junior candidates willing to put the energy to join the SILEX adventure and grow both their financial and technical knowledge in a high-responsibility and visibility position.

Required skills

  • A degree combining Finance and IT, or a valuable first experience in the field
  • Experience with Bloomberg and/or Reuters terminal and API
  • Good communication skills and a service-oriented mindset
  • Good analytics and modelling skills
  • Basic proficiency with SQL
  • Fluent in both English and French

Nice to have

  • Proficiency in a scripting or programming language (VBA, R, Python, …)
  • Proficiency in Java programming language
  • Experience with other financial data providers
