    Within GSAM, the Quantitative Investment Strategies (QIS) group is responsible for managing client assets, and is a market leader in quantitative portfolio management.  We use advanced quantitative methods to structure, manage, and monitor investment portfolios including hedge funds, mutual funds, and separately managed account.  QIS offers multi-asset strategies, as well as equity strategies, including both actively managed portfolios and portfolios that closely track an index.   Clients include public, corporate and charitable institutions, high net-worth individuals, retail investors, and various portfolio management groups within the division.

Team members should have a quantitative orientation and be comfortable with numbers/statistics, and at the same time possess excellent communication skills, both written and verbal.  Team members will also gain a broad-based understanding of the asset management business and hedge fund industry through interacting with a variety of teams and clients across the division.
