A rapidly expanding hedge fund, that launched a number of years ago, with a $1bn AUM that is set to multiply on the back of market leading performance (they are targeting $2bn by 2021), are looking to make a newly created non-investment hire.

The hire will move in to hands on operations/middle office role, managing one other operations analyst, but with budget to make a further junior hire in Q4/Q. You will report directly in to a managing partner. The existing COO plans to take up the CEO seat in 12-18months and as a result, we are targeting this particular hire as future COO - this offers an incredible, unique opportunity for an exceptional line operations professional/junior operations manager to effectively become COO of a well-developed hedge fund with a significant AUM.

The hire must be prepared to ‘roll their sleeves up’ and work in a hands-on capacity across operations, middle office (P&L attribution / risk analysis) and fund accounting (NAV review/analysis) tasks. There are no immediate plans for a mass build out, but we are keen to hand the new hire great responsibility and autonomy to create change in the business (you will be encouraged to generate new ideas – instructing their IT/quant support staff on new initiatives), including the implementation of a new OMS/PMS during 2020.

We are ideally looking to hire a senior operations analyst/operations manager looking to make his/her first step up to ‘Head of Operations’. We would also consider a senior fund accountant/fund controller (assuming they are a qualified accountant), happy to take on a new remit/challenge. It is a pre-requisite that candidates must have a 2:1/first class degree from a red-brick university. You should also be ‘tech-savvy’.

The role will initially pay a 70-90k base salary. Furthermore, it is realistic to expect a 50-100% bonus if the hire performs to a very high standard. The firm run a friendly, relaxed culture (with a great work life balance), with rock-bottom attrition.
