Job Information

LGT Capital Partners is a leading alternative investment specialist with USD 60 billion in assets under management and more than 500 institutional clients in 37 countries. An international team of over 450 professionals is responsible for managing a wide range of investment programs focusing on private markets, liquid alternatives and multi-asset class solutions. Headquartered in Pfaeffikon (SZ), Switzerland, the firm has offices in New York, Dublin, London, Paris, Vaduz, Dubai, Beijing, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Sydney.

The news-based trading team at LGT Capital Partners Ltd. developed a natural language processing algorithm (“NLP”) to assess sentiment in the financial news. This English language based NLP makes use of dictionaries (object words, positive words, negative words, etc.) while taking into account certain syntax structures to detect and quantify news that may influence the opinions of market participants strongly.

Currently, we intend to adapt this process for quantifying the German language news.


For the implementation of this interesting project we are looking for a smart, creative and structured Master / PhD student or postdoc (preferably in language studies) with excellent command of German and English.

Start: March / April 2019 Duration: 1-2 months with a 50% involvement
