As of June 30, 2019, assets tracking Scientific Beta smart beta indices reached USD 48bn. Scientific Beta has a dedicated team of 52 people who cover client support, development, production and promotion of its index offering.
As part of the development of its index development activity, Scientific Beta is recruiting two interns for quantitative research analysis (1 position Research Department and 1 position Index Department). The positions are based in Nice, France.
The interns will be responsible for quantitative research, performance analysis and reporting on systematic equity investment strategies, including the Scientific Beta smart factor indices.
The role will require the candidates to use concepts from performance measurement and portfolio theory, as well as applied econometrics and statistics to analyse investment strategies. They will analyse performance over time and in different market conditions, assess implementation issues and transaction costs, as well as examine and explain different portfolio construction steps.
The position focuses on computational tasks but also requires the candidate to present reasoned analysis of his or her results. The intern will also be expected to draft reports and presentation materials based on quantitative results.
The role requires sound knowledge of advanced computational tools (such as MatLab), and advanced knowledge of Excel. The successful candidate will also have an excellent command of financial theory and applied statistics/econometrics, as well as a keen interest in empirical work with financial data and applying advanced research-based concepts in practice.
The internship is for a period of six months, starting preferably in January 2019.
