We apply computational models to financial markets, analysing a range of data and information, and exploiting relationships among financial instruments such as stocks, futures, and currencies. Most trading of the fund’s portfolio is managed automatically by our proprietary algorithms and software. Our team works with the latest technologies to develop these algorithms and tools to navigate a wide range of markets.
Our team of over 80 comprises:
- Researchers, who identify opportunities and build our quantitative models and strategies.
- Computer Scientists & Software Engineers, who design the software that drives our investment strategies.
- Computing Infrastructure Specialists, who design and support our trading and business infrastructure.
- Our Operational Team supports our investment professionals and clients.
How we work
We tackle real-world problems with an open mind, and draw inspiration from a vast array of sources. We place huge value on clear thinking that leads to elegant solutions. We encourage a culture of innovation and craftsmanship, and embrace a philosophy of continual improvement. With release cycles measured in hours, there is immediate feedback on personal contribution.
As part of our commitment to fostering a sociable working environment, we hold a range of events throughout the year. We have recently held a summer BBQ at the botanical garden, a private museum tour, and a conference at a country retreat.
