Securities Division, Credit Trading – Credit Strats, Analyst or Associate

As a strategist who sits in the Securities Division, you will play an integral role on the trading floor. You may create cutting-edge derivative pricing models and empirical models to provide insight into market behavior, or develop automated trading algorithms for the firm and its clients. You might be involved in analyzing exposures and structuring transactions to meet client needs, or involved in designing and developing complex parallel computing architectures, electronic trading tools, and advanced algorithms. Throughout the Securities Division, strategists are using quantitative and technological techniques to solve complex business problems.


Our core value is building strong relationships with our institutional clients, which include corporations, financial service providers, and fund managers. We help them buy and sell financial products on exchanges around the world, raise funding, and manage risk. This is a dynamic, entrepreneurial team with a passion for the markets, with individuals who thrive in fast-paced, changing environments and are energized by a bustling trading floor.

Credit Strats are looking for a talented individual to work on the macro suite of products within Credit, including indices, options, tranches, ETF and TRS. The team works on pricing, analytics, tools and infrastructure. The group is geared towards creative design of a trading environment which is precise, controlled, and profitable.

You will contribute to the group in a technical and analytical capacity, with slightly more emphasis on the former. The group has many opportunities in trading, and needs strong footing in the applications, systems, and infrastructure that form the base of our contributions. Your primary role will be in designing and extending these systems. You will need to build and contribute to our analytics as well, for which these technologies serve as a conduit, and we’d estimate a 70/30 split between the two. You will be impactful from day 1, and will learn how to organize and run a trading business.
