    YOUR IMPACT


    As a Macro Strat, you will play a noticeably central role in trade structuring, pricing, execution and risk management. More so than at most other desks. This presents a highly visible platform to use your skills and knowledge into making a tangible impact to the firm’s bottom line. You will gain familiarity with a wide range of asset classes and risk factors despite sitting in a single business. This provides an invaluable and unusual opportunity to build a deep foundation of product knowledge.

     

    OUR IMPACT


    The Macro Trading business operates a global business in market risk intermediation via derivatives, secured financing, exotic note issuances and secondary trading.
     
    In the past years, we have analysed and transacted a vast spectrum of product, including interest rates options, structured rates products and repacks. There is plenty of new area to explore in our world and our Strats team is highly valued by the business.

    RESPONSIBILITIES AND QUALIFICATIONS

    HOW YOU WILL FULFIL YOUR POTENTIAL

    · Developing pricing and risk analytics and tools for Volex Trading businesses
    · Working on exotic notes models and transactions
    · Working on hybrid products such as repack and bond options
    · Building and maintaining a complete trading, market making, and risk management platform and supporting the daily functioning of the business
    · Assisting in Firm-wide Strategies initiatives
     

    SKILLS AND EXPERIENCES WE ARE LOOKING FOR
     

    - Strong academic record with Master’s/PhD level or equivalent in Physics, Engineering, Mathematics or a related discipline required

    - Prior experience of working as a Strat within the Investment Banking/Financial Services industry required
