  • electronic Fixed Income Credit and Commodities

    Electronic trading is evolving fast. We want to be one of the leading innovators in the field, so we built a team that brings together experts in Trading, Analytics and Technology.

The better you can assimilate a complex array of quantitative, programming and market information, the more successful you will be.

Research

Research
Research is an ideas factory. This is the team that digs deeper into everything that affects the world’s financial markets.
  • Credit Research

    Credit Research is ideal for analytical thinkers with the curiosity to dig further into financial statements, credit agreements and indentures. The team sits on the corporate credit trading floor, just rows away from where the trade execution occurs. It’s a fast-paced operation that’s organized into four primary groups: high yield, investment grade, emerging markets and strategy.

    Whichever group you work in, you’ll have daily meetings with Sales and Trading colleagues, where you’ll deliver a succinct summary of what to discuss with clients throughout the day. You’ll also talk to clients daily yourself, giving them our views on a credit or sector, and how valuations might be affected by specific events.     

  • Equity Research

    This award-winning team provides fundamental research on nearly 1,700 companies across the Americas and Europe. Our analysts create actionable investment ideas based on independent, objective, primary research.  They deliver in-depth expertise by identifying industry trends and individual company inflection points.  Our team interacts with institutional money managers, corporate executives, industry experts, as well as our internal partners across Markets, Banking and Research.

    The ability to articulate and present succinct, accurate, insightful messages is crucial. You’ll learn to react swiftly to market movements and provide quick but thorough analysis on how industry trends or geopolitical movements may affect the industry or specific companies you cover.
