Goldman Sachs has added to its Delta One ranks in Hong Kong with an executive-director level hire from Bank of America. KK Wong, who specialises in quantitative strategy for Delta One and securities lending, joined the bank last month, according to his public profile.
Wong had been with Bank of America in Hong Kong since 2011 and was latterly a vice president. He worked in the firm’s securities lending and Delta One business and his responsibilities included asset yield optimisation, platform strategy and profitability analysis. Wong studied engineering, computer science and risk management at The University of Hong Kong.
His hire doesn’t appear to be a one-off for Goldman Sachs in Hong Kong. The bank currently has two Delta One vacancies on its careers website, which describes the Delta One desk as “one of the largest providers of capital over fully automated electronic channels within the equities division”, adding that it is “constantly looking to expand”.
If you want to work as a trading strategist (‘strat’) at analyst/associate level within Goldman’s Delta One franchise in Hong Kong, you will be tasked with pricing and hedging complex over-the-counter transactions, designing trading strategies, and building scalable infrastructure to “reliably execute and hedge risk quickly and accurately hundreds of thousands of times a day”.
Moreover, you’ll need experience with Python or R, some knowledge of Java, Scala or C++, and a “general familiarity” with equities market structures.
Goldman is also looking to hire a Hong Kong-based Delta One engineer. This is an opportunity “to get in on the ground floor of a substantial new project”, suggesting that more Delta One tech hiring is on the cards at Goldman Sachs in Hong Kong.
