Quantitative Analyst - Equity

WELLINGTON MANAGEMENT

Wellington Management offers comprehensive investment management capabilities that span nearly all segments of the global capital markets. Our investment solutions, tailored to the unique return and risk objectives of institutional clients in more than 50 countries, draw on a robust body of proprietary research and a collaborative culture that encourages independent thought and healthy debate. As a private partnership, we believe our ownership structure fosters a long-term view that aligns our perspectives with those of our clients.

POSITION

The Quantitative Investment Group is seeking to add a Quantitative Analyst to its team. The group currently manages over $6 billion in equity and derivative assets across global markets in both long-only and absolute return strategies.

The Analyst will contribute to the research and development of the group's increasingly diverse suite of alpha sources. The R&D in the group involves both bottom-up stock selection using security level information, and more top-down, thematic ideas, using economic series and data from other asset classes.  Risk modeling and prediction is also a focus.  The research is collaborative, rigorous and data intensive.  Typical tools used in the research process include time-series and cross-sectional statistics, econometrics, optimization techniques, and stochastic simulation.

As the Analyst gains an understanding of the alpha signals, risk management, and portfolio construction approaches of the Quantitative Investment Group, he/she will begin to lead some research initiatives and take a more active role in portfolio management.

QUALIFICATIONS

  • Advanced degree in mathematics, computer science, statistics or related fields
  • Passion and experience with statistical inference using computer-age techniques / data science / machine learning
  • Fluency with C++, R, or similar languages
  • Experience with higher turnover signals and less traditional data/factors preferred
