Quant employers in Edinburgh?

Postby awesomo » Thu Jan 07, 2010 1:52 pm

I have just obtained a Ph.D. in nonlinear evolution equations at the University of Glasgow. Prior to this, I obtained a 2:1 in a joint maths/stats degree (also at Glasgow). During my undergraduate degree, I did a summer placement as a statistician with the Medical Research Council. Presently, I am 4 months into an intership with Aviva working as a trainee actuary; the placement ends at the end of March. I'm serious about becoming a quant but would like to work in Edinburgh due to family ties.

Could anyone please give me names of employers of quants in Edinburgh who might consider someone with my background? I'd be very grateful for anything.

Sure, there are quant employers in Edinburgh. There's Moody's Analytics (who do plenty of rates/credit/equities/FX modelling), SWIP/Lloyds Banking Group, Standard Life/Standard Life Investments, Black Rock, Hymans Robertson, and maybe others too.
