Following significant growth and scale a leading Hedge Fund is currently recruiting for a Market Data Analyst.
The fund trades in multiple asset classes across numerous geographical regions with a track record of consistent performance. Data and Technology play a key role in trading ideas and investment decision and therefore this seat is of integral importance.
This position is an extremely visible role to the front office, with 80% stakeholder engagement being with Quant and 20% the Investment Desk underlying the technical and analytical nature of the role.
Typical duties will include but not limited to:
Given the analytical nature of this role and its management and extrapolation of large data sets this will suit only the most numerical and inquisitive of mind sets. This is not to be viewed as a role that manages, oversees and maintains current data flows, but challenges, improves and increases the accuracy of data to improve Quant and Investment Decision.
We believe this role will offer a significant steppingstone to anyone currently on the data vendor side or enterprise solution provider looking to move to a hedge fund enticed by the opportunity of analysing data directly for Quant and Investment. This would also suit a Data candidate at an Investment Bank who is looking for closer engagement with Quant or a candidate coming from a Hedge Fund who is looking to join a Fund which has more appetite for growth.
Typical Experience would ideally include;
Understanding and exposure to proprietary market data, static data and research data systems Third party data systems and vendors
Experience working directly with Developers
Excellent knowledge of financial instruments
Minimum 2i in a numerate subject from a Russell Group university or international equivalent
