Lynx is a quantitative asset manager headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden. We employ over 70 people with predominantly scientific backgrounds specializing in a wide range of fields including physics, statistics, finance and software engineering. More than half of our team focus on research and development, although we encourage intellectual curiosity and creativity from everyone at the firm.
Lynx was founded in 1999 by Jonas Bengtsson, Svante Bergström and Martin Sandquist. The trio previously constituted the proprietary trading unit at Nordbanken, a Swedish bank, where the basis of the original Lynx program was developed. Today, the company is owned by the three founders, the portfolio managers, a few key employees and Brummer & Partners.
