To further improve the investment strategy, Kempen’s asset allocation team has an internship position available immediatly with a focus on data science and machine learning. The practical use of machine learning is only in the development stage within the team and therefor you will focus on applying existing machine learning techniques on data already widely used within the team. Of course next to that, you will be encouraged to develop and implement your own ideas.

The asset allocation team focuses on analyzing macro-economic drivers of financial markets. These macro-economic analyses makes use of economic and fundamental data as well as market data and technical indicators. The underlying question is whether algorithms can provide consistent and valuable trade signals by analyzing the vast amount of available data in a comprehensive way. Examples of trade signals are long equities v short government bonds, long emerging market equities v short developed market equities, etc.
