Hong Kong, China -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/02/2020 -- Recruiting for and obtaining, quantitative analysis positions requires specialist insight and support from a recruitment partner such as Selby Jennings. Quant opportunities can be found all over the world but many of the best roles are concentrated in big financial centres, such as Hong Kong, and areas like Kowloon, Tsuen Wan and Yuen Long Kau Hui. However, Selby Jennings HK has established that Asia is currently experiencing a talent shortage when it comes to those able to fill Quant roles. There is a significant mismatch between the volume of opportunities available and the number of people able to meet increasing demand.

The importance of Quant to the investment industry today should not be underestimated.
