Our client is a high caliber boutique equities investment manager with strong track record looking for a new member of their sales / asset raising team to build out a continental European investor base and raise assets from the region.

Our client is a high calibre boutique equities investment manager with strong track record. The firm manages north of $2bl AUM across several equities strategies, both hedge / liquid alternatives and long only, mostly in UCITS structures. Driven by alpha, the firm runs unconstrained and highly active equities strategies.

The culture is driven by entrepreneurialism and curiosity. The founder and CIO fosters a flat structure where everyone’s ideas are openly considered and reviewed. The firm is privately owned and independent. All 12 of its employees have equity and everyone who joins is expected to become a partner. So, everyone at the firm thinks beyond their role to help the business grow.

The fundraising team has a very collaborative approach and is highly team oriented. Members of the sales / marketing team are not micro managed; the firm looks for driven individuals and self-starters.

Having been successful in asset raising and attracting investors in the US, UK and Nordics the firm is now looking for someone to come in and build out continental Europe.  

The ideal candidate will have an asset management / fund sales background or be part of an investor relations / client services team and ready to take a step up into a sales role. Candidates with a strong understanding of the financial services industry and sales skills from outside of these teams will also be considered (eg. Investment bank, private bank, financial software).

Candidates must either be native German, Italian or French speakers. We are looking for a highly hands on, driven individual who wants to build their career in an entrepreneurial firm where they can take on a lot of responsibility and ownership from day one.
