Job description

A career at the Lombard Odier Group is something to be proud of. Our mission is to protect and grow our clients’ wealth - but not by any means necessary. Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do and we treat our clients’ wealth as if it were our own. We protect our clients’ assets for the long-term using expertise and innovation, all underpinned by our Rethink Everything philosophy. Our colleagues are the foundation of our success. We employ people at different life stages, from graduates to executive level leaders. The one thing they all have in common is that they seek to challenge the status quo, are imaginative and have the ability to offer a fresh perspective.
Lombard Odier Investment Managers (“LOIM”) is the asset management business of the Lombard Odier Group. With more than 120 investment professionals, we are a global business with a network of 13 offices across Europe, Asia and North America. LOIM has a unique approach, combining the best of alternative and traditional asset management to offer its clients and prospects a diversified range of investment solutions, including a number of new and innovative approaches based around our commitment to sustainability.

We are looking for a Quantitative Analyst to join our Sustainable Investment Research & Strategy team, which is split between our London and Geneva offices, so it’s up to you where you’d like to be based.
Primary responsibilities:
Your main focus will be on research for the development of tools to inform our financial decisions in relation to climate and nature-related risks and opportunities. This will include working closely with our geospatial analyst in data collection and modelling as well as statistical analysis focusing on data related to biodiversity, deforestation, greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental and social impacts.
To break that down a little: you’ll undertake quantitative and qualitative research aimed at detailing major megatrends surrounding natural capital and their financial impacts on industries and business. This includes translating the exposure to these risks into financial indicators, such as value at risk (VaR) and expected annual losses due to increasing occurrences of heatwaves, droughts, hurricanes, etc., as well as integrating alternative data into our database of geospatial intelligence and its broader value chain.
With this information, you’ll develop tools and frameworks to support analysts’ engagement with companies, with the aim of improving data collection methods and our ability to assess exposure to climate change and other megatrends. And in order to do that, you’ll articulate, demonstrate and present the implications of your research internally and externally, focusing on the ability of this analysis to inform financial decisions.
Desired profile:
So that’s what we’re looking for someone to do. In order to be our someone, you’ll have dynamite analytical and numerical skills as well as the creativity to build fresh insights from raw data and the global trends you notice within. You’ll need to be either educated to masters’ level, preferably in environmental engineering, mathematics or computer science, or have equivalent professional experience. Either way you’ll certainly have experience in environmental modelling, whether through academic research or as a consultant (for example), which has included GIS and remote-sensing tools and techniques such as Python and SQL as well as geospatial software such as PostgreSQL/PostGIS, GQIS, Google Earth Engine, or RStudio. You’re also an innate collaborator and clever communicator who thinks clearly and is brilliant under pressure. We work in English so fluent French isn’t necessary, even if you’re based in Geneva, but extra languages are always a bonus; on average the team speaks three apiece and we’re always looking for new ones to widen our scope.
Finally, the reason this opportunity exists is our commitment to sustainability. Lombard Odier believes that sustainability will be a major driver of returns for the foreseeable future. For those with the skills to adapt to this new reality, sustainability will open up new investment opportunities and lead to enhanced return and reduced portfolio risk, and our track record here is among the best in our sector. You’ll be a key member of the team driving Lombard Odier’s work in this area, so you’ll bring knowledge of relevant sustainability issues and trends as well as the ability to adapt that knowledge into working initiatives.
If you recognise yourself in this description, then please do apply. We look forward to hearing from you.
