LongTail Alpha is looking for independently motivated individuals with doctoral degrees in finance and related fields with strong technical, quantitative modeling and programming skills to join our research team.  Ability to develop original ideas with rigorous research and analysis and the ability to communicate them in practical and usable format is critical.  Training and experience in derivatives and some investing experience will be additional qualifications for success.

LongTail Alpha believes that sustained portfolio performance comes from expecting the unexpected, and from positioning portfolios to earn yield while maintaining convexity. The firm blends a solutions approach with value added from expertise in implementation of these solutions in a portfolio form. The firm has developed a proprietary framework based on academically rigorous research, and tested over two decades of implementation, which assists in analyzing the portfolio risks, hedging both “left-side” or negative tail risks and “right-side” or positive tail risks, and by optimizing performance by combining market positions and risk allocation across asset classes.
