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, the EDHEC group, one of Europe’s leading research and teaching institutions, is recruiting an Investment Solutions and Product Specialist for Scientific Beta, in Boston.
The successful candidate will be responsible for providing support to clients and users on conceptual frameworks, features and calculations for single and multi-factor indices. This will require liaising with technical and research teams to meet client demands and responding to highly analytical/quantitative inquiries. The role also involves supporting the Business Development Manager on sales activities with expert presentations to clients and providing advice on the implementation of multi-factor solutions for clients on the basis of the wide range of indices designed by Scientific Beta in coordination with the research teams.
The successful candidate should have a quantitative educational background (statistics, mathematics, finance). A PhD would be a plus. Prior client-facing experience within a financial institution, preferably in portfolio management, is necessary, together with financial markets skills, extensive knowledge of asset pricing and multi-factor products. The candidate should also be able to communicate complex quantitative academic literature to audiences of asset owners and to work independently in a small team, showing initiative to support clients and prospects with the goal of winning business together with the Business Development Managers.
This is a global position that is based in Boston but requires frequent travel to Europe and North America.
Salary will be determined according to the EDHEC pay scale, based on the candidate’s qualifications and prior experience.
US work permit is mandatory.
