Although this is my first post, I've been a lurker here for 4+ years, enjoying both the informative posts and the entertaining conversations.

I'm in my last year studying mathematics at one of Oxbridge as an undergraduate, looking to apply in London for full time positions as (1) a junior trader at a proprietary firm (not arcade), or, failing that, (2) an analyst in any financial firm requiring comparable quantitative skills.

I was wondering if anyone could provide a list of prop shops or quant hedge funds looking to hire new graduates in London.

I've already done a bit of research on my own, going through (1) Google, (2) my university careers website, (3) the list of ETF market makers on the London Stock Exchange, and (4) forums such as NP, WSO, etc., but I haven't found too many.

Firms I know with open positions in London:
- Atlantic Trading
- Citadel
- D. E. Shaw
- Jane Street Capital
- Jump Trading
- Mako
- Mandara Capital
- Maven Securities
- Parhelion
- Tibra Capital

Firms with offices in London but no open positions:
- ADG Holdings
- Allston Trading
- Bluefin Trading
- Chicago Trading Company
- Five Rings Capital
- Flow Traders
- G Research
- Headlands Technologies
- Hudson River Trading
- Liquid Capital
- Oak Futures
- Principle Trading
- Ronin Capital
- Sequoia Capital
- Teza Technologies
- Tower Research
- Two Sigma
- Volant Trading
- Winchmore Capital
- Winton
- XR Trading
- XTX Markets

Can anyone shed some light on any of these firms? I know there are threads discussing some of these firms (I have read them as well), so feel free to skip on those, but most of them haven't been mentioned here; those are the ones I'd be looking for info on. I've been looking for a while and will expand my scope to investment banks, etc. once term begins, so as not be to jobless come summer.

Sorry for the long wall of text
