Reporting to the Chief Asia Ex-Japan Equity Strategist, (with a dotted line to the Joint Head of Equity Research in Tokyo), this role will be part of their well regarded strategy team, helping to produce top-down asset allocations, thematics and index research. The scope will include AEJ as a whole, various individual markets in the region, plus various sectors and themes with both regional and global imprint.

This is an exciting opportunity for an analyst with around 3-6 years of experience in equity/quants research – sell side or buy side – with a solid background in data science and/or quantitative science and excellent communication skills in both English and Chinese (Mandarin).

 

As a house, they are consistently ranked in the top three research houses in Japan in the Nikkei Veritas, Institutional Investor and other surveys. The research franchise is backed by a growing and global equity distribution platform with offices in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, London and New York. Their research franchise is full-scale in Japan (with coverage of around 600 stocks touching all major sectors) and well established in select high-interest sectors in the US (with coverage of more than 450 stocks in technology, biotech, healthcare, industrials, consumer, energy, utilities, software, internet, fintech and REITs). In Asia ex-Japan, stock coverage is limited to technology (Korea and Taiwan). But Hong Kong’s strategic location underpins the recent appointment of an equity strategist whose mandate includes bridging and synergising these disparate equity research products while providing clients with a unique “view of the world from Asia.”

 

Key responsibilities

  • Build and update index products, factor analysis, etc
  • Work with the Chief Asia Ex-Japan Equity Strategist on various aspects of the strategy product
  • Track corporate and consensus numbers, maintain databases
  • Participate in distributing and marketing team views as directed

Skills/qualifications/experience

  • Sell-side or buy-side quantitative (or adjacent) research experience of 3 to 6 years
  • Excellent English competence and reasonable fluency in Chinese (Mandarin)
  • Primary qualification in some area of data science preferred
  • Familiarity with popular financial software such as Bloomberg, or coding/VBA/Python expertise would be an edge
