We are working with a top tier investment bank who are looking to add to their QIS Structuring team. This team has a cross asset mandate and are front to back in terms of owning the research process as well as the structuring of transactions. Initially, this hire will be largely focused on originating new business and then leading the process of completing the trades. This will suit a candidate with a solutions, client first approach who has extensive experience winning and running QIS deals.

This hire is part of a wider push to win market share by winning mandates in a market that is open to challenge due to the ever increasing level of complexity of client. They are looking to hire someone at Director level who has a deep understanding of QIS and has been involved throughout deal lifecycles. The team are big believers in needing to know strategies inside out to be able to effectively win business where the ability to deliver highly customised to sophisticated clients is ever more important. Likewise, there is a strong belief in the neccessity in being able to deliver a truly joined up, cross asset solution to investors. Therefore, whilst it is expected that the candidate will come from an equity or equity derivatives background, it is crucial for this individual to have a wider cross asset knowledge in the QIS space. As well as this, the individual must enjoy working in a collaborative environment and be team oriented. 

As this team is relatively small compared to some, it means this role will also have a strategic element involving being part of wider business decisions as the team grows. It would suit someone who has been part of a successful growth story at a top tier firm who is now looking to take on more responsibility in growing out a business. It is clear that there are many challenges facing the QIS market currently, but this is one of the best placed teams to navigate and thrive in the next 18 months - 2 years due to the calibre of people involved and the joined up structure of the business. 

This team has a positive work environment combining a high-performance culture with a more progressive and intellectual approach to work (and people management) than at many competitors. This underpins a collegiate and innovative spirit that translates into commercial and personal success.

Responsibilities:

  • Front to back responsibility for winning and successfull delivering QIS mandates.
  • Working with a range of senior and junior stakeholders to deliver solutions and build the wider QIS business
