Join a highly entrepreneurial and passionate team of traders.
With a proven track record, you will be working as a trader on the Index & Forward Trading desk alongside a team of highly motivated individuals to carry out index arbitrage and related delta-one activities across various Asian markets from our Hong Kong office.
Reporting to the Hong Kong Head of Index & Forward Trading, you will trade listed and OTC products such as stocks, ETFs, stock/index/dividend futures, forwards, and equity swaps in order to maximise risk-adjusted returns. Besides index arbitrage, you will also be involved in corporate actions/event trading and other proprietary trading strategies. You will be constantly on the lookout for balance sheet and funding optimisations, as well as ways to advance the technology, operations and front office platforms. You should explore, identify, pitch and execute upon new trades, strategies, products and markets.
The successful candidate would benefit from experience in the pricing of index futures/swaps and FX forwards and familiarity with index management principles and mechanisms (e.g. adjustment methodologies, scheduled rebalances, divisors and price adjustment factors). You may also bring a proficiency with risk management systems, trading platforms and execution algos. Prior experience with Asian markets and regulations is highly valued, and Mandarin language abilities, while not a requirement, are a plus. Knowledge of python would also be advantageous.
