Junior Research role – Hedge Fund Front Office – 60k base + bonus
London, England, United Kingdom
A leading hedge fund, possessing a very large & expanding AUM are looking to make a new front office hire.
Joining the firm’s front office research team, the hire will work as a ‘Research Specialist’ in a role that directly supports arguably the most successful economists in the European hedge fund space. In the simplest sense, you will handle vast amounts of data in research that requires structuring, cleaning, maintaining etc. However, the hire will also have direct responsibilities to source new data for the economists + provide recommendations (on product trends, alternative approaches, research suggestions etc.) to the team based on independent market research/analysis that you will be entrusted to carry out. With regards to progression, the fact the hire is working in front office, on the research team, alongside European market leading economists – this can open many doors for an ambitious individual.
We are ideally looking to hire an individual with 3-6yrs experience in a role that has put a strong focus on data management/data analysis. This would preferably be in an asset manager or a role that has an association with the buy-side industry. We prefer to hire an individual with SQL experience (as you will be required to use SQL daily in this role).
The role can offer up to a 60k base salary. There is potential movement either side of that number depending on experience level, skill set etc. You will be part of the front office bonus profit pool, so the majority of individuals relevant to step in to this role could potentially expect to earn a much larger total comp package than they are used to.
