Oliver James Group Launches Specialist Quantitative Search Brand


This week, Oliver James Group announced the launch of Trace – a dedicated quantitative search brand in the UK and North America. Based in London, Trace operates on a global scale, building trusted relationships with clients and top-tier quantitative professionals across four main areas of specialism: Hedge Funds, Asset Management and Systematic Trading.

Trace was born from the need for innovative search solutions in a brand-new era of quantitative analysis. UK Director, Denesh Gnanalingam, says:

“The quant space is evolving. Our passion for the market alongside a deep understanding of each technical discipline has allowed us to flourish in a highly competitive area of recruitment. Maintaining and strengthening relationships for the long term is fundamental to the way we work: our approach is dynamic and flexible and has led to the creation of a collaborative environment in which success can thrive.”

Focussing on a select number of technical specialisms, Trace takes a fully immersive approach, offering a consultative service based on the specific requirements of its clients.
