Hedge Fund Trading Assistant distinct from Operations

London, South East England

I’m working with a high-volume multi-strategy fund business to find a sharp and dynamic Trading Assistant to join their trading team. This is a role sat on the desk with a team of traders away from operations whereby you will gain highly sought-after investment decision exposure. The company is agile and has had a great year performance wise.

You will manage trade capture of all products including but not limited to derivatives across equities, credit, rates, and FX and monitor middleware trade matching platforms and deal with live breaks in a timely manner. You will be the main point of contact for the prime broker and review and report top day PnL internally. You will also help manage the trader’s risk and get involved with execution when needed.

In order to be considered for this role you must have very strong academics; either a 2.1 or a 1st from a Russell Group university in a very numerical subject. You must also have a broad product range or specialism in rates or credit. This is a mid level role paying no more than £65k on the base. Any experience of coding would be a distinct advantage.

Please email your CV as soon as possible to if you meet the above criteria.
