My client is a boutique hedge fund that has seen significant growth since launching 3 years ago. With AUM in excess of $1bn, they are looking to make a key hire into their middle office team and require an ambitious candidate with 2+ years’ worth of relevant experience.

Due to the excellent performance thus far, the successful candidate will be afforded all of the support and guidance to progress their career and develop their skillset. The CIO and COO have a distinguished career and are highly regarded throughout the industry hence, this is a fantastic opportunity to learn from some of the best.

As part of a small team, you will be working very closely with the portfolio managers, risk specialist and developers to be/become the specialist in supporting real time trading activity. Three core areas of focus for the hire will be trade support, cash management and fund accounting. General duties will include counterparty liaising, monitoring of the trade lifecycle (trade matching, settlements, confirmations etc..), collateral management etc. In addition to this, there is a fund accounting element that’ll require a full understanding and practical experience of the valuations process. That includes monitoring of subscriptions and redemptions, performance and management fee reconciliation, and general NAV reconciliations too.

Candidates with the ability to use VBA for process automation are desirable however, that competency is not essential. The candidate will be expected to maintain and up-date current trade flow and collateral management manuals and related documentation, as part of the due diligence requirements.
