Quantitative Traders Build…
Models for security valuation:
Our traders try to determine what things are worth. We trade equities, currencies, commodities, bonds, options, futures and other derivatives. Some of our models are simple, while others are complex. Building new models requires imagination, curiosity, and the careful analysis of market data on our custom research infrastructure.
Tools for risk management:
As we buy and sell securities, we acquire risk. Carefully measuring risk is essential to running a global automated trading firm. Our traders are not only responsible for figuring out what things are worth, but also deciding how much risk to allocate in a given market or security each day. All of this is done in real-time using proprietary systems and methods.
Opportunities arise when market prices diverge from our models. Our traders study these opportunities and how to best take advantage of them by executing trades. Traders work closely with our Software Engineers to design algorithms and strategies which interact with markets while minimizing market impact.
