My client is one of the leading buy side / asset management firms in the UK. They have a rich risk management culture and are a firm I have known for many years. The team has more recently shrunk their second line of defence in favour of a first line of defence which ultimately reports into the CIO rather than CRO.
The successful candidate will be responsible for the ownership and development of quantitative tools to support fund manager and their team.
Suitable candidates will have both a technical risk knowledge as well proven experience developing a wide range of tools and utilising a variety of coding languages. Candidates will be familiar with methodologies such as VaR and bespoke models. Candidates are likely to come from either a Fixed Income or Multi-Asset background.
Potential candidates must apply ASAP as there is substantial interest in this position as it is in the front office and I expect to put applications in shortly.
