UK Hedge Funds are on the lookout for top talent

By Matea Gucec

UK hedge funds are still searching for top talent despite difficult market conditions forcing employment layoffs in various financial services industry sectors. They are casting a wide recruitment net ranging from portfolio managers to recent technology graduates, according to Financial News London.

Brevan Howard is hiring for 12 roles right now, 12 of which are open opportunities for software developers, portfolio financing analysts, and quantitative developers. In September, the company also named Kevin Gage as its new chief technology officer (CTO).

Meanwhile, according to its website, Marshall Wace is accepting applications for its technology graduate program and actively hiring for 11 London-based positions, including a data engineer, business intelligence developer, crypto quant researcher, and full-stack developer in portfolio management.

Additionally, managers with international offices are trying to expand their staff in London. Steve Cohen's Point72 Asset Management, which recently hired Soeren Radde from London to lead its European economic research, is currently hiring for 20 positions in the UK capital.

Meanwhile, the London branch of the US-based hedge fund Millennium Management is said to have 22 unfilled posts, including those for a quantitative investment analyst and a repo trader.
