    Your Impact


    The group is looking for a quantitative sales strategist to join the team. Within GPS, you will develop analytics and tools for asset allocation, portfolio construction, trading, risk management and monitoring, as well as generating analytical reports for internal (GPS) and external (clients) use. The developed analytics are made available to strategist and non-strategist members of the GPS team. As such, the tools you may develop need to be robust, accurate and allow scalable, widespread use. Strategist team members will assume responsibility for the developed analytics, and are given ample opportunity to provide creative solutions and develop novel analysis methods and tools. Interactions with other GPS members and clients warrant an ability to communicate clearly about complex financial, business and mathematical concepts.
