*** Mention DataYoshi when applying ***

Do you want to do quantitative research and apply these insights to fixed income investing? We have a great opportunity for a data scientist intern with a passion for data analysis, programming and financial markets. Your hard work could be implemented into a strategy for NN IP’s clients.

Your impact as Data Scientist Intern at NN

Adaptive Investing is a cornerstone of NN IP’s strategy, augmenting human capabilities with sophisticated techniques. The Investment Solutions team has 4 Data Scientists who are responsible for quantitative signals and tooling used by the Global Fixed Income and LDI teams of the Fixed Income Solutions department.

Your role will be to research one or more new quantitative signals, with the support of our Data Scientists. Your research will help the team generate new insights and add value to our asset allocation processes. A research project does not always discover a new source of returns, but when it does then this may be implemented directly into the investment processes of our investment funds and client mandates.

Your responsibilities
  • You research new quantitative factors that drive asset class performance
  • You analyse data and interpret results, backtesting to really see if your research has worked!
  • You create presentations of your results and organize discussions with the stakeholders

  • Student of statistics / econometrics / mathematics / financial economics or similar
  • Understanding of time series and basic backtesting principles with interest in financial markets
  • Able to explain, document and present ideas and concepts to a broader audience
  • Experience of programming languages like R/Python and collaborative and structured coding principles

The Investment Solutions team sits as part of the General Account (GA) desk, and is responsible for the investment management of the NN insurance entities.
