Quantitative Research & Trading

In 2017, Patrick J. Aregger took over Swiss-based asset management firm Quantica Capital AG and following an office relocation and a shake-up of operations, two years on Quantica’s flagship fund is up 26% and, as of September this year, has attracted about $100m of new money, taking their total assets under management to $550m.

Quants is profoundly transforming the investment industry. As financial securities have become increasingly complex, demand has grown rapidly for people who can use mathematical models to price these securities, generate profits and reduce risk – enter the quant. Quant analysts apply mathematical and statistical models in the sell-side for derivatives pricing and risk management, as well as the buy-side for statistical arbitrage, algorithmic trading and quantitative investment trading.

Harnessing the power of computer science and vast data-sets to make investment decisions is no mean feat. In the words of Jim Simons, Renaissance Technologies founder and leader of the quant revolution, “The system is always leaking, and we keep having to add water to keep it ahead of the game.” The ‘quant king’ is no stranger to success. Since 1988, Renaissance Technologies has generated over $100bn in trading profits – more than any other hedge fund in history.

The future looks bright for the quantitative hedge fund industry, with $1tn of assets under management this year – with the sector continuing to grow at breakneck speed it is a great time to be a quant. Our consultants are specialists in their markets, recruiting top talent for organisations across the quants job markets throughout Switzerland and Europe.
