Base Metals Trader Analyst

London, South East England

Join our highly successful and growing Commodities business as an Analyst level Metals Trader, based in our London office.

You will be responsible for the execution of transactions across a range of clients and products. Under the direction of a Senior Trader you will also be involved in hedging and risk management.

In this varied and exciting role, you will also be responsible for daily PnL and position reporting as well as ad-hoc analysis to support pricing and risk management activities (working with desk analysts and quants).

You will bring demonstrable interest in Trading and a high level of academic achievement. It would be useful to have studied a quantitative degree and you will certainly need an understanding of the following.

    • Options pricing and risk management principles.
    • PnL + position reporting
    • Principles of complex derivation valuation and the limitations of theoretical models in pricing real-world transactions which involve difficult-to-hedge risks

If you are able to develop tools for pricing risk and market analytics that would be extremely useful (probably using Python, R, or VBA).

It is an exciting time to join Macquarie, our market leading Commodities business is thriving and generating opportunities across all its sub-divisions.
