As part of its policy of transferring know-how to the industry, EDHEC-Risk Institute has set up Scientific Beta. Scientific Beta is an original initiative which aims to favour the adoption of the latest advances in smart beta design and implementation by the whole investment industry. Its academic origin provides the foundation for its strategy: offer, in the best economic conditions possible, the smart beta solutions that are most proven scientifically with full transparency of both the methods and the associated risks.

As of December 31, 2018, assets tracking Scientific Beta smart beta indices reached USD 43bn corresponding to one-year growth of 72%. Scientific Beta has a dedicated team of 52 people who cover client support, development, production and promotion of its index offering.

As part of its international development programme and in order to strengthen its index development activity, Scientific Beta is recruiting a Quantitative Analyst (Internship) for its Nice office.
