The role is an investment/portfolio risk role, sitting in the front office - the hire will form part of the firm’s investment process, working very closely to the portfolio management, quant and strategy teams that you face off to. Core to the role is that the risk analyst will analyse / assess the portfolio and strategies + provide insight and analysis to the investment committee / PM team. The highly quantitative nature of the firm’s strategies and the remit of the role mean that we need to look for candidates with strong python skills, that are keen to develop these skills further.
It is possible to progress in other areas of quant/front office in time and/or into more senior risk roles in their hub US office (potentially Asia too).
We are looking for candidates with 2-5yrs hedge fund or IB risk management experience. Candidates must have strong python skills.
The role is paying a £60-80k base salary. A large % of base can be realised as a bonus – you are part of the front office bonus pool.
