About AQR Capital Management
AQR is a global investment management firm built at the intersection of financial theory and practical application. We invest on behalf of our clients — including institutional investors, such as pension funds, defined contribution plans, insurance companies, endowments, foundations, family offices and sovereign wealth funds, as well as RIAs, private banks and financial advisors.
Our commitment to these clients is to help them exceed their long-term objectives. We do this by filtering out market noise to identify and isolate what matters most, and by implementing ideas that stand up to rigorous testing.
Our focus on research-driven, practical insights powered by advanced technology, economic intuition and firm-wide risk management, has made us leaders in alternative and traditional strategies and explains why so many types of investors seek our expertise in meeting their financial challenges.
About The Team
AQR’s Risk Management team has direct day-to-day responsibility for managing the market, credit, liquidity, model and counterparty risks of firm-managed investments. Within the Risk team, the Market Risk team has direct responsibility for monitoring and managing market and liquidity risk across all asset classes and portfolios managed by the Firm.
The team interacts closely with portfolio managers in setting and monitoring limits, preparing reports, and making risk management recommendations. The department has direct responsibility for a range of hedging strategies and for processes aimed at reducing portfolio risk in the event of meaningful market volatility or dislocation.
The team is also responsible for developing and enhancing the firm’s risk methodologies and analytics and works closely with our own technology team to implement these. Methodologies range from risk models, stress tests, scenario analysis, hedging analytics, to event analysis.
The risk team is also critically responsible for producing a wide range of internal, client, and regulatory reports that support all the risk activities of the firm.
Our team is looking for an exceptionally talented Market Risk Analyst. This role will support all aspects of the Risk Team’s daily market risk activities. This includes monitoring the firm’s portfolios, running systematic daily risk control processes and helping with risk reporting. The Analyst will also be responsible for investigating risk issues, working with PMs across the firm, and formulating consistent courses of action. The role will include research and development of risk methodologies and conducting quantitative investigations.
