Which algorithmic/quantitative hedge funds with offices in London belong to the set of most prestigious (with the best reputation) HFs world-wide? (i consider "hedge fund" in a broader sense: prop shop, investment manager, market maker, ...)

From some recruiters I got impression that Jane Street, GETCO, G-Research and GSA Capital top the list in London, but out of these 4 only Jane Street and GETCO are in fact international. I would like to hear other opinions.

Which one do you think would be the "safest" first career option for after a PhD?

The HBS guys have MAD SWAGGER. They frequently wear their class jackets to boston bars, strutting and acting like they own the joint. They just ooze success, confidence, swagger, basically attributes of alpha males.
