Are you in the final stages of a mathematical or engineering program and have a strong interest in the financial markets?
Lynx is offering an opportunity for ambitious students to do their degree work with us during a spring semester.
Lynx Asset Management is a quantitative hedge fund based in Stockholm. We apply scientific methods to create systematic investment strategies aimed at providing our clients with high risk-adjusted returns and attractive portfolio properties. Innovation has been part of our DNA since we started in 1999. At Lynx, we have managed to create a workplace where academic methods and a relentless focus on results are nourished by a friendly, collegial culture. The wellbeing of our employees is especially important to us as they are the ones who make us successful. Lynx actively strives towards being an inclusive workplace and we see diversity as a prerequisite for future success.
Topics for a master thesis at Lynx Asset Management can range from investigating the potential of alternative data sets in signal generation to exploring novel portfolio construction techniques to applying machine learning methods in systematic trading. All work will be done at Lynx's office in central Stockholm.
