We work with a variety of clients, including hedge funds, mutual funds, insurance companies and pension funds that use equity synthetic strategies to achieve their investment objectives. Leveraging our strong relationships across the firm, product expertise and client experience, we are responsible for understanding our clients’ organizations and needs to deliver the equity synthetic platform via customized and innovative solutions across the global markets.

As an equity synthetics marketer, you will become a product expert with deep understanding of the mechanics of synthetics as well as motivations of trading in swap in markets around the globe, acting as a primary resource for internal and external clients, and navigating the business globally to deliver creative solutions.

You will work with experts across sales, trading, operations and other areas of the firm to discover and execute opportunities to meet the needs of our clients and deliver commercial outcomes for the firm – for example, facilitating custom hedging solutions, seeing a difficult negotiation to the finish line, or helping a client use MARQUEE to deliver the firm to the client’s desktop. In the increasingly dynamic market environment, it is critical to stay well-informed of market and product updates to keep clients abreast of all industry trends and regulatory developments.
