Quantitative Research & Machine Learning

quantitative-research-icon

We apply scientific techniques to find patterns in large, noisy and real-world data sets, using the latest statistical and “big data” analysis methodologies to predict global financial markets.

Quantitative Research

Our technology, research and resources are combined to build a single, powerful platform for developing your ideas. We use rigorous scientific methodology, robust statistical analysis and pattern recognition to analyse an extensive and varied financial data ecosystem, extracting deep insights from truly massive datasets. Our platform provides the ability to test your mathematical models in action and get instant results using real world data.

Machine Learning

We employ cutting edge machine learning methods drawn from diverse areas such as neural networks and deep learning; non-convex optimisation; Bayesian non-parametrics and approximate inference. We have the freedom to extend classical methods as well as develop entirely new ideas.

Inspirational Mathematics

At G-Research we promote an academic and intellectual culture. Most of our Researchers have joined from PhDs or Postdocs from top-tier global institutions. There are multiple IMO medallists, Fulbright Scholars and even a Senior Wrangler.

“You hit the ground running here, with the freedom to work on any idea you have”.

I studied Mathematics at Princeton University before obtaining a PhD in mathematics from the University of California, Berkeley. My main research area was probability theory, where I focused on eigenvalue distributions of certain discrete matrix groups. I chose G-Research because it provides researchers the best environment for developing new ideas and making significant contributions very quickly.

 “G-Research has been a great move from academia.”

Prior to joining G-Research, I was a mathematician at Oxford, completing a PhD in 2011 and then working as a PostDoc. Finance appealed to me as a field where maths research could have a real and immediate impact. G-Research is genuinely a research-lead company that gives us cutting-edge tools and world class data to study some of the most interesting problems in the industry.

“I moved to G-Research seeking a new challenge that would let me make full use of my machine learning experience. I have not been disappointed”.

After reading computer science at Cambridge, I completed a PhD on the topic of Gaussian processes. Since I joined G-Research, the discipline of machine learning has grown to become a foundational part of the company’s quantitative approach to investment. There are limitless opportunities here to apply innovative techniques to some uniquely difficult data sets.

“I love collaborating with some of the smartest people I’ve ever met”

I completed a Bachelors in Physics, a Masters in Theoretical Physics and a Masters in Mathematical Finance at The University of Bologna. I then went on to do a PHD in Computational Neuroscience at the University of Bologna, Imperial College London and the University of Southern California.  I really enjoy the fact that we are able to see the whole process after we start with a idea, conduct preliminary research and then test our ideas in the real world due to the strong infrastructure we have.

What we look for

You’ll have a record of academic achievement in mathematics, physics, machine learning, computer science or engineering. There’s no need for experience in finance.

Interview process

You’ll take a 90 minute, handwritten technical test to demonstrate excellence in maths, stats, programming and probabilities. This is followed by interviews. The assessment process is highly challenging, so we suggest you spend some time preparing for the test by reviewing our suggested reading list and attempting our sample test questions. Links below:
