Our Quantitative Analysts research ideas to predict returns in global markets. They apply scientific methods from diverse disciplines including Bayesian statistics, signal processing and machine learning to discover the patterns hidden in noisy real-world financial data sets across multiple asset classes. In addition to our permanent vacancies, we offer 4-6 month internships for those in the final year of a PhD or Masters within Quantitative finance.
Our researchers have first-class academic backgrounds in maths, physics, computer science or engineering. We hire from a wide range of backgrounds including directly from PhDs or postdocs, banks or technology companies. We do not require experience within finance, and are particularly interested in your academic achievements.

Our Quantitative Analyst recruitment process starts with a technical test. This is a 90 minute handwritten test and covers a variety of your skills including maths, stats, programming and probabilities. If successful you will be interviewed by our Quantitative Analysts.
The assessment process is highly challenging, we recommend that you spend some time preparing for the test by reviewing our suggested reading list and attempting our sample test questions. Links to these are provided below.
