Founded in 1987, SIG has grown from an options trading firm on the Philadelphia Stock Exchange to one of the world’s largest privately held financial institutions. Today, with offices around the world, we trade almost every major financial product, and we are recognized for our disciplined and quantitative trading approach, and our leading-edge trading systems. Our established European headquarters in Dublin 18 now employs over 650 people in Trading, Technology, Research, Operations, Compliance, Legal, Finance, and HR.
As an analyst on SIG’s Research team, you will partner with our senior analysts and traders to identify investment opportunities in the equity or options market. Research analysts provide real-time opinions on breaking news and in-depth analysis of future events. You will be responsible for finding opportunities that other market participants may not be capitalising on, either by discovering new information or considering existing knowledge from a different perspective. Analysts are embedded in a strategy-focused trading desk and the analysis you provide will directly impact trading decisions.
You will experience dedication to training as you work collaboratively with the research analysts and traders on your desk to gain hands-on exposure. You will also learn about options and the decision-making strategies that our traders employ. This role provides the unique opportunity to combine the quantitative aspects of finance with creative problem-solving in order to develop trade ideas in a fast-paced, proprietary trading environment.
