The Index Product Development Senior Analyst will be responsible for developing new indexes that will be benchmarks for financial products such as exchange traded funds (ETFs).

What You Will Do:

  • Develop indexes for benchmarking and third-party product creation based upon multiple asset classes from both client driven requests and original concepts. Asset classes include equities, options, fixed income, and crypto.
  • Prepare and present customized client presentations including index backtests and comparative index and product performance analyses.
  • Use a deep understanding of business/client needs and user experience to build/improve products.
  • Fully own an index from development to launch.
  • Possess a deep understanding of the competitive landscape and the trends in the business.
