YOUR IMPACT:

We are looking for an individual with a passion to learn, innovate and apply quantitative skills to very complex and seldom documented problems. This individual will have an opportunity to learn about cutting edge problems investment banks are currently facing to optimise their capital and liquidity footprint. You will be given the opportunity to drive projects with direct and quantifiable PnL impact to the bottomline of the division and of the firm.

OUR IMPACT:

Divisional Strats The Divisional Strats Group is central to management decisions made by senior business leaders within the Securities Division, create actionable strategies to enhance business performance, and drive cross-business initiatives along with the leadership team. The group works across various functions, including but not limited to, divisional risk management (liquidity management, market risk, counterparty risk, capital allocation, etc.) and divisional financial and sales management (revenue attribution, franchise flow & analysis, etc.)

Funding and Capital Optimisation Divisional Strats: For this position, we are looking for an Analyst or Associate in the FCO team within the Divisional Strats Group. The individual will focus on the optimization of scarce resources (Capital and Liquidity) and should demonstrate strong statistical, quantitative modelling, and programming skills as well as excellent communication, presentation, and interpersonal skills. The current portfolio of projects has a significant impact to the bottomline of the firm but because of the very bespoke nature of the mandate of the team, there is embedded flexibility to onboard any new ideas with commercial impact.

HOW WILL YOU FULFILL YOUR POTENTIAL:

-Create innovative models and calculators to help drive our Capital and Liquidity optimisation effort across the securities division with initial exposure to Macro Businesses and eventual exposure to all the businesses in the division.

-Apply Numerical optimisation techniques to the minimisation of the firm's scarce resources (capital, initial margin, contingent liquidity).

-Interact with business leaders to explain your findings and drive their implementation.
