Leon

Hear from Leon, a Quantitative Research Manager, on how the flexible working culture at G-Research motivates him.

“Having started my university education in Engineering at MIT, finance didn’t initially seem like an option. But, after a discussion with my peers, I steered my PhD research towards more applied maths topics – positioning myself for a finance role.

“There was a lot I didn’t know about G-Research, so I gained insights from those who interviewed me. They all came across as intelligent, curious, and interested in exploring problems from different angles. I figured if people like this enjoy their jobs then I most certainly will.

“There’s nowhere I’d rather be. The atmosphere is very relaxed and, as a quantitative researcher, we can pretty much spend all our time doing what we like the most: finding solutions to interesting and challenging problems. There are no office politics and the performance metrics couldn’t be clearer cut, which is a big motivational factor.”

"G-Research makes a lot of effort to have a very open culture and gives a lot of freedom to its individual researchers to pursue directions that they think are valuable, with each researcher very much driving their own research. I didn’t feel like I was losing a lot of freedom (compared to academia)."
