There would be exposure to a wide range of asset classes across Equities, Futures, Commodities, Options, Bonds and Currencies.

The person:

  • Applicants must have a Bachelor's degree in a relevant field (e.g. Maths, Physics, Engineering or Economics)
  • Ideally a background in Operations and/or Middle Office gained from working in an Investment Bank, Trading firm or Hedge Fund. If someone has exceptional academics, there may be flexibility on previous work experience!
  • You should be a self-motivated critical thinker who can multitask and enjoys a fast-paced, highly intellectual environment.
