Job Description

Job Role: Entry-level, multi-function role focusing on systems and computer design, operations work, research support and dealing/trading on our investment desk. We are looking for someone who can grow with us and has a very high ceiling.

-> Note: “Analyst” is the title given to our most junior staff. We are hiring a recent graduate for an entry-level role. We are not hiring experienced research analysts at this time (although this role has opportunities for significant upwards or lateral movement.)

Reports To: Vice President (immediate superior) and Chief Investment Officer
Based In: Hong Kong

Candidates: Hard-working individuals of all backgrounds and diplomas are invited to apply, particularly those with an interest in the stock market and investment. Significant computer and coding-related tasks will be required.

Other: We are searching for a talented, upwardly-mobile individual for this role; someone capable of being utilized in greater capacities later. A successful candidate will have an opportunity to grow within our firm.  Operations work is a significant part of this role but this is not an “operations / back office” position and existing operations or back office personnel will not be considered for candidacy, unless interested in an upwardly-mobile, multi-task role including systems design, financial modeling, dealing/trading and/or research. You are expected to be part of the firm’s risk-taking process by automating our integrated system. 

You will be asked to do everything, and expected to do everything you’re asked to perfection. 

You will start work in June if hired.

The role has two primary responsibilities: Financial Operations, and Systems Design and Application. Significant amounts of assistance in investment research support will be required.

As part of our investment and operations processes we utilize a self-designed, cloud-based integrated financial platform. Most of the role’s responsibilities require both financial and systems knowledge simultaneously. Some responsibilities of the role include:

  • Dealing: Non-discretionary equity trading, routing portfolio manager’s equity orders to market

  • Maintain connectivity between our systems and various third parties
