Product Owner for Investment Performance Measurement and attribution

Location: Copenhagen, DK

Are you passionate to discover new solutions and bring visionary ideas to reality? Then this might be the right opportunity for you.

Performance measurement and attribution solution is a framework for deconstruction of investment returns and attributing them to various factors, such as asset allocation and security selection. In simpler terms, performance attribution helps investment managers assess the effectiveness of their investment strategy.

In today's complex investment landscape, real-time performance attribution can provide transparency and clarity regarding the drivers of financial returns, particularly in portfolio construction and active risk management. Our new investment analytics service enables users to perform advanced investment performance analytics on the fly, with calculations delivered in just a few seconds.

To succeed on this ambitious project, we are expanding our agile team of dedicated experts with a great variation in skills and experience. The team takes the lean startup approach, and you will acquire many new skills on the way.

Being and working collaborative goes without saying, because this is the most effective way to deliver. This adventure will involve a lot of client engagement, project work and deep diving into complex investment analytic disciplines.  If that is so much you, please reach out and let us talk.
