Quantitative Research & Trading

Quantitative Researcher

AlphaGrep - Singapore, Singapore

AlphaGrep is a quantitative trading firm founded in 2010. Majority of our revenues come from proprietary trading, but we have also incorporated a quantitative asset management business in 2021 (with funds in Singapore, China and India) that is growing rapidly.

We are one of the largest firms by trading volume on Indian exchanges and have significant market share on several large global exchanges as well. We use a disciplined and systematic quantitative approach to identify factors that consistently generate alpha. These factors are then coupled with our proprietary ultra-low latency trading systems and robust risk management to develop trading strategies across asset classes (equities, commodities, currencies, fixed income) that trade on global exchanges.

Our traders execute lightning-fast algorithmic strategies based on patterns in market behaviour in over 150 markets worldwide. As a Quantitative Researcher, you’ll draw upon your computer science, mathematical, and analytical abilities to develop complex and nimble code used to grow our business and increase the efficiency of the global financial markets.

Your responsibilities may include any of the following

  • Designing, implementing, and deploying high-frequency trading algorithms
  • Exploring trading ideas by analysing market data and market microstructure for patterns
  • Creating tools to analyse data for patterns
