From my vantage, there is definitely decent performance for Systematic L/S funds. Given this and the postings I'm seeing in NYC, I imagine hiring is continuing in London too.


What type of fund?

Systematic Long Short Equity (London)

Significant demand on market making side /non-bank

Plenty of opportunities in algo trading, L/S, absolute returns. If interested, feel free to reach out.

Hi, I’m interested, how can we connect?
