Quant Portfolio Manager
Your impact as a Quant Portfolio Manager at NN IP
Together, we invest in several asset classes, like shares, bonds, commodities and currencies. You directly affect the overall returns of our portfolios by originating and executing high quality research. The research ideas can be sourced though academic and broker research but also through insights you gain by critically assessing our existing investment strategies and behaviour in financial markets. You study and quantitatively analyse the fundamentals of potential investment strategies and apply a critical and structured approach to go from idea to implementation by defining investment rules. Your next step is intelligent optimisation of these rules by writing robust and efficient code to capture the opportunities.
Throughout the process, you are perfectly capable of underpinning your proposed improvements. This way, you can convince others and to have a serious and qualitative debate on it.
Using initiative and ambition, you achieve excellent results:
- Increase risk-adjusted returns
- Improving efficiency and robustness of our investment process
- Commercialisation of our investment strategies
Critical skills of a Quant Portfolio Manager
Your great communicative ability helps you to express clearly what the problem is and to explain how the problem can be solved. You like to get your teeth into research, and you use a structured approach in doing so. As a creative thinker, you gather new ideas to tackle different problems. You will not get lost in complexity thanks to your strong analytical and mathematical skills. In the ideal situation, you understand the principles of good software design and you have some experience with scripting languages, like R or Python and knowledge of SQL.
