Quantitative Trader - 2020 Programme

This programme is the start of a challenging, fast paced and rewarding career in trading as our Quantitative Traders are seen as the future of SIG. From the beginning, you’ll be exposed to a mix of classroom based training and hands-on, practical experience, teaching you the skill of making rational decisions in an environment of uncertainty. 

Quantitative Traders work within a trading team on one of our many strategies. Their primary role is to support the traders in the execution of trading strategies. The day-to-day work includes handling trades, maintaining systems, and interpreting information that may affect trading strategies. As Quantitative Traders progress and master the trading strategy, they will be responsible for making independent trading decisions. Quantitative Traders also participate in trading exercises which allow the application of theoretical and practical knowledge in a realisti simulation environment. 

Successful Quantitative Traders will be invited to participate in SIG’s formal 10-week training class in our US headquarters, learning from our founding partners who have over 30 years’ experience in the industry.
