Quant and HFT hedge funds in Switzerland?

Hi all, I'm graduating soon and looking for good paying software/data science jobs. What are the big players in quantitative/HFT space here in Switzerland? Is there anything of Two Sigma / Citadel caliber here or is everyone in NYC?

I've heard of IMC Trading in Zug in the past, but don't find any openings of them here - did they close their Zug shop or something?


Do the big swiss banks here run prop trading shops?

The majority are in NY, London, Amsterdam or further afield HK.

There might still be a couple of players in Zug and Schwyz. From the top of my head Argentiere (www.argentiere.ch) in Zug and the Quant outfit of Man Group - AHL (www.ahl.com)

Office in Zug closed a few years back now. They are still active as far as I know.

No but there are plenty of “data science” / analytics related roles that can open doors for you. Most of them are driven by sales these days and some Robo advice, the rest just regulatory compliance.

Most of the hot stuff has shifted to Crypto, as there is more juice there.

PM me, happy to connect and share further insight.
