A hedge fund that doubled its AUM over the past year and are well on track to hitting $1bn+ in 2017 are looking to make a key hire.

Reporting in to the COO, with a dotted line in to the PM desk, the hire will work in a role with a broad remit. A large part will be taken up by trade execution as you will have full ownership over all of the firm’s offshore funds. Given the size of the fund your role will also incorporate trade support (trade bookings, portfolio maintenance, portfolio analytics, FX hedging) responsibilities, in addition to managing portfolio positions across PB’s / securities. Given growth plans at the fund we expect the hire to work towards a role in which they are eventually ‘Head of Trading’ (when other areas of your remit can be offset).

You must have a minimum of 2-3yrs hedge fund experience. Trading experience is useful, however my client is happy to look at hedge fund operations / MO analysts and Trader Assistants looking for a step up. It is a pre-requisite to have Bloomberg experience.

This is a newly created hire, so my client is open to budget at this stage. However please appreciate that they are ideally looking for a junior to step up, so it could be difficult to hire a more senior person at an inflated base salary.
