Given the learning opportunities that this position presents, it has a clear progression into more senior risk-taking seats within the fund.
The role will pay a highly competitive comp package, with a substantial bonus (50-100%) dependent on individual performance.
The ideal candidate will have accrued at least 2 years of experience trading at either a hedge fund/asset manager or an investment bank where they have covered equities or derivatives products.
