This is an exceptional opportunity to become an equity partner within a systematic hedge fund.
A well branded $1.5bn hedge fund, (multi-strat multi-$bn) with a very long standing (15+ years) in Systematic Trading and with a good ethos has had a recent change of management. The fund is currently talking to large investors which could ramp up their AUM to more than $2bn.
We are looking for senior Quantitative Portfolio Mangers who can handle a minimum of $100m capital. The successful candidate will need to be able to answer questions that Investors typically ask particularly now that quant funds are performing lower than previously. The firm wants to hire a person or small team that already know how to make money in a particular asset class (medium to long term investment horizon) rather than take the time researching it themselves. Most attractive is those who can code themselves as well as be the idea and executor. Need people who are able to describe the rationale behind their trading whether that be expert market microstructure knowledge or a macroeconomic reason why they have the idea which was then research and the hypothesis tested. The CIO and the investors will want to believe in your approach but they don't need to know the secret sauce. Other key points are; operating leverage, people who are keen to interact with the rest of group to improve what they themselves are doing, people that want to be or to become equity partners.
Whereas a number of firms are aggressive when it comes to hiring this type of profile - high staff turnover and spend in the region of $250k per manager finding out if someone is able or not to achieve good results this firm is more traditional and will not blow this person out should there be a tough year performance wise. If you want to join a 50 person firm where you have the chance of $1bn running through your models on a particular day this should be an attractive opportunity.
