Medium sized Fund Management firm is expanding its Research and Analytics group, focussing on Fixed Income Portfolios and needs a Junior to intermediate research Analyst to build and tailor Fixed Income Indices. This is a not just a number crunching role as it will involve cross group communication with the opportunity to be involved with clients at an early stage.
Working as part of a small but global Index team you will build and review Fixed Income Indices for a number of different functions across the business including Risk, Compliance and Client specific requirements. Working closely with client facing teams, the role would suit someone entrepreneurial with an interest in the economics and how world events impact the Fixed Income markets and Indices.
They are looking for a proactive graduate with 2-5 years experience as a Research Analyst or Index Analyst with demonstrable knowledge of Index Design and modification. Fixed Income knowledge is highly preferable with Bonds and ABS being the core of what you are working on but with scope for developing custom models like currency-hedged benchmarks and Commodities based Indices with Futures. Knowledge of SQL, Excel and VBA would be useful for automating your work but most of this can be learnt. Responsibility will be given early making an enthusiastic and pro-active personality essential as you take on a broader remit providing excellent career progression.
