Quantitative Research & Trading

Quantitative Research & Trading

Known in the business as ‘quants’, quantitative analysts develop and implement complex mathematical models that financial institutions utilise in order to make decisions about risk management, investments and pricing. An amalgamation of logic and smarts, a quant’s aim is to reduce risk and generate profits.

The International Association For Quantitative Finance is a not-for-profit, professional society dedicated to fostering the profession of quantitative finance by providing platforms to discuss cutting-edge and pivotal issues in the field. Founded in 1992, the IAQF is composed of individual academics and practitioners from banks, broker dealers, hedge funds, pension funds, asset managers, technology firms, regulators, accounting, consulting and law firms, and universities across the globe.

The future looks bright for the quantitative hedge fund industry, with US$1tn (€900bn) of assets under management worldwide, according to latest figures. Demand for candidates in Germany is at an all-time high, spurred further by an increase in Brexit-related roles in the banking sector. Salaries in the industry have increased by around 15-20% as the banking industry feels confident about the positive effect Brexit will have on the job market.

Our Berlin based consultants are specialists in their markets, recruiting top talent for organisations in quantitative analytics sector throughout Germany and the rest of Europe.
