Your impact as a Quant Portfolio Manager at NN IP

Together, we invest in several asset classes, like shares, bonds, commodities and currencies.

You study and quantitatively analyse the fundamentals of potential investment strategies and apply a critical and structured approach to go from idea to implementation by defining investment rules. Your next step is intelligent optimisation of these rules by writing robust and efficient code to capture the opportunities.

You like to get your teeth into research, and you use a structured approach in doing so. As a creative thinker, you gather new ideas to tackle different problems. You will not get lost in complexity thanks to your strong analytical and mathematical skills. In the ideal situation, you understand the principles of good software design and you have some experience with scripting languages, like R or Python and knowledge of SQL.
