My client is a top tier hedge fund in NYC looking to bring on a quantitative risk analyst. At this time we are only considering exceptional candidates with exceptionally strong skills in R. Will require an absolute minimum of 2 years working experience directly using R.
A global investment management firm that manages approximately $40 billion in assets.
Seeking a Risk Analyst to support equity risk management group at a top tier hedge fund. Candidate should have a quantitative educational background (e.g. statistics, econometrics, finance, data science) or a quantitative employment history of 2-5 + years. Excellent SQL, R, Excel skills a must; familiarity with Shiny (an R package) a plus.
They’re looking for someone who can build an equity risk dashboard and how they look at all the portfolio and equity trading and risk data. The goal within a year would be for the candidate to assume primary responsibility for monitoring a subgroup of the equity traders or certain risks of the firm.
Familiarity with equity markets, or any markets, would be helpful, as would prior experience in a risk management group or trading operation.
Candidate must be extremely sensitive to details and also very fast. Job will entail a heavy workload across a wide range of topics. Must also be able to communicate effectively.
Long term goal would be for the candidate to assume primary responsibility for monitoring a subgroup of the equity traders or certain risks of the firm, but near term role will be running reports, automating processes, and performing one off analyses as needed for the Equity Risk Group. Given how well the candidate handles those initial jobs, more responsibility will be added.
