IR - Quantitative Analyst

Location: London, England, United Kingdom

Salary: GBP700 - GBP750 per day

The role being offered is to participate in this major multi-faceted re-engineering project and work within the Global Markets Quantitative Research Transversal Architecture team to develop our Flow Rate Risk and P&L Explain analytics library to the evolutions of the Global Markets environment. The job covers the following tasks with the prioritization being done by the quant team:

Objectives / Benefits

  • Harmonization of the Front-to-Finance chain across Global Market (Long term)
  • Avoid duplication of pricers and leverage expertise within each individual GBL

Project Components

  • Create a harmonized payload (PDL) building services in different pricing libraries (Reflection API) and make them stateless and connection-less
  • Retrieve all static and market data components inside CPS component from market data Central Cache (MDD)
  • Retrieve all Positions from any class of Assets from a ‘MDD-like’ point of entry
  • Route payload to the relevant pricer
  • Harmonize PDL definitions of market data across Global Business Lines and ensure proper ownership.
  • Optimise interaction between C++ and ADA parts of the library

Focus for the Role:

In the context of this project a unified risk engine allowing the generation of consistent risk and P&L Explain scenari for all asset classes has been designed. Alongside a senior quantitative analyst the role will initially involve extending the capacity of this engine to generate a step-Revaluation P&L Explain in line with the methodology defined by global Markets quantitative research for flow rates products and ultimately a risk-based approach too.


This role will require both a very strong level of C++ as well as a good knowledge of risk and P&L Explain for Fixed Income IRFX products.


All tasks above are to be conducted with the supervision of the quantitative team to ensure consistency between different asset classes.
