My client is a large global fund manager with products across various passive and active global equities including quant (systematic), fixed income, various real asset alternatives and customised overlay solutions.  This asset manager has a small existing and growing presence in Australia purely for capital raising with an existing team specialising in the active strategies and are now looking to grow the passive strategies business which is a globally market leading platform.  

Reporting to the Managing Director and Head of Asia Pacific, Passive Strategies (based in Hong Kong), you will be tasked at driving strategy of the local business unit to assist which products should be cross listed on the ASX, which products should be sold in this region and which channels should be pursued.  You will then be tasked at implementing this strategy.  Over time this role could build into a national leadership role for the passive strategies with a local team of reports, depending on the success of the local business unit.  You will also be sitting with a local distribution team who are concentrating on active strategies who give you the ability to navigate the global unit, swap contacts, assist with booking/attending meetings.

We require a candidate who has meaningful and demonstrably successful track record in either retail/wholesale or institutional fund raising locally in Australia.  It is also a preference to consider candidates who have distributed passive strategies previously.  

You must have full working rights for Australia to be considered for this role.
