A top Institutional Asset Manager is currently hiring for Market Data Vendor Manager.

The role blends two key lines of duty: Market/Benchmark Data management and Supplier/Vendor Management.

The Market/Benchmark side will involve running the market data strategy of the fund and taking responsibility for the market data budget. Naturally the role will sit closely with finance and look at the analysis of spend data and providing monthly and YTD reporting for senior management. The role will also work with senior management to agree market data budgets, bespoke MI reports, and provide forward thinking planning and strategy around all contract renewals and upgrades.

The successful candidate will also take responsibility for all market data requirements including benchmarks, data feeds, desktop terminals, credit ratings, industry research and investment management platforms. Although this role can be traditionally part of the back office operations team, stakeholders in this role include the fund's investment desks. This person will work very closely with them to deliver the right market data products and services.

Twinned with the analysis and reporting side the role will have a heavy supplier facing element. The successful incumbent will act as the main point of contact for all vendors, ensuring all SLA's are adhered to, negotiating contracts and building a long term trusted partnership. Within the role you will be the central point of contact with the Procurement Team.

To apply you will have solid market data and vendor management experience within Asset Management or Investment Banking. Knowledge of market data products, MI reporting, real time and back office feed products. You will adopt excellent analytical skills, technical systems skills along with excellent communication and relationship building skills.
