Operations Manager – $10bn Long Only Equities Asset Manager – 100% bonus – Excellent work life balance!!

Location: London, England, United Kingdom
Salary: negotiable

A multi-billion dollar AUM Long-Only Equity Asset Management firm are looking to make a key, newly created support hire.

Coming in to the firm as ‘Operations Manager’, working in a hands on role, you will be well trained to take on the ‘Head of Operations’ role in 12 months when the current incumbent leaves the industry. The hands on nature of the work is broad and in addition to core middle office work, you will perform in-depth analysis on client portfolios. Back Office work is outsourced, so the expectation is that from day one the hire can provide full oversight of what is being produced by the outsourced company, manage them and analyse the incoming results (providing higher level commentary to front office and senior management each day), including the fixing/discussion around any discrepancies. The hire will also manage further external providers such as brokers and custodians, with full autonomy to make changes where necessary. We are also looking for the hire to work with senior management in building out/enhancing the current Operations/MO function, to deal with increased AUM capacity in 2018. At the point of progression, you can expect to be managing a small team.

We are looking for an equity specialist, from a Long-Only Asset Management background (as opposed to hedge fund candidates), currently working in Operations, that would see this role as a great step up. We could also look at somebody with a greater level of experience, that is hunbgry for a new challenge. You should ideally possess a good academic record.

The role can pay a highly competitive base salary to hire the correct candidate and can offer up to a 100% bonus if you are deemed to be a top performer. The work life balance (5/530pm finishes each day) and working environment is excellent and something that the firm really pride themselves on.
