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:

  • Analysing market data across full data life cycle reviewing and resolving daily exceptions
  • Analysing market data and ensuring accurate and clean data is provided to the Quant team – minimising bad data
  • Analysing data used to price instruments and analysing data from multiple sources/vendors
  • Looking after any exceptions raised on the back of bad data or missing data, working with the various stakeholders in the business and external vendors
  • Sourcing and onboarding new data vendors
  • Heavy project aspect to the role as the fund plan to trade in new asset classes
  • Manage large data sets of new data vendors to ensure consistency and accuracy present the results to Quant and Head of Data
  • Analysing historical data from vendor identifying gaps in the data, analysing price movements and working with Quant as part of the analysis and presenting clean and accurate data
  • Building automated reconciliation tools for cleaner and more accurate

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;

  • Mathematical and analytical mindset and approach
  • SQL, Tableau visualisation, R, VBA or Python
  • Blend strong tech skills with good business knowledge and an engaging demeanour
  • Experience in data science, data cleaning/data scrubbing and strong understanding of data enterprise solutions

Understanding and exposure to proprietary market data, static data and research data systems Third party data systems and vendors

  • Excellent knowledge of Bloomberg

Experience working directly with Developers

Excellent knowledge of financial instruments

Minimum 2i in a numerate subject from a Russell Group university or international equivalent
