Unique opportunities have transpired for entry level graduates in statistics, physics, actuarial, econometrics and mathematics to work for a global proprietary trading firm as an assistant trader. With an outstanding presence in Asia Pacific, Europe and the US my client boosts an impressive team of dedicated quantitative traders, analysts and computational scientists.
The successful applicant will report to the senior trader and assist in day to day administration and support of trading operations. These will include the analysis of flow and market information, adjustment of options market and management of option books. This is a fantastic opportunity for entry level graduates in statistics, mathematics, engineering, actuarial or physics. It’s also a great opportunity for people with experience in another field and really want to get their foot in the door in trading. Finance experience or knowledge in financial markets is not necessary. Candidates with a 1st Class Hons, Masters or PhD are strongly encouraged to apply.
Please note that applicants will be shortlisted on the basis of their academic credentials, which must be at a High Distinction level. Anything less will not be considered, therefore only the top 1 % will be contacted. The type of modelling skills we desired are varied, therefore we are keen to speak to anyone from an applied or pure mathematics background. These include but not limited to; theoretical physics (anything from dark matter/energy to quantum mechanics, computational, fluid dynamics, string theory or condensed matter, etc), plasma or electromagnetism. Engineering (mechanical, electrical, nano, aerospace or financial), actuarial, statistics (probability modelling is highly desired).
Applicants must send their academic transcripts and sit for a 1 hour maths test offsite. (Finance and trading knowledge will not be tested).
