Department overview
The Equities Quantitative Trading Desk engages in systematic, process-driven proprietary trading. The group builds automated strategies aimed at capturing market inefficiencies. These trading opportunities might be very short-lived (a few milliseconds) or longer term; they might be pure arbitrage or more statistical in nature. The group relies on state-of-the-art infrastructure to handle its large trading volumes. The group operates at the intersection of trading, quantitative modeling, and technology, and roles are therefore highly interdisciplinary. The group is global with a presence in New York, London, Paris, Zurich, Singapore and Tokyo.
