Senior Treasury Analyst (trading desk) – Hedge Fund – 150-200k package (Hedge Fund Operations Analyst/Middle Office Analyst candidates preferred)
Location: London, England, United Kingdom
A hugely successful hedge fund are looking to make a key investment desk hire.
Sat with the Portfolio Managers, we require a hire to backfill a hybrid Trader role. The current incumbent is moving internally in to a more senior level trading role for one of its latest fund launches, hence the need for a replacement.
The role has great autonomy, as you will have ownership to manage European PB relationships and will be the single point of contact for the investment desk. You will provide the Head of Trading and Research Analysts with market colour, your thoughts and advice on a daily basis, in addition to recommendations on short term cash investment options that the firm may consider as an alternative to money market investments. Please consider that trading responsibilities will play a key part in this role. Additional responsibilities include obtaining locates for short sales, monitor financing rates, obtaining borrow colour and monitoring fully paid lending opportunities for revenue enhancement. You will manage debit financing and synthetic financing across strategies. This is clearly a varied, front office role and as a result progression possibilities are also varied (as seen by the current individual moving in to a markets trading role), however there is a great direct opportunity for this hire to build out a wider European Treasury function.
We prefer to look at a Hedge Fund Operations Analyst / Middle Office Analyst, with around 5-10yrs experience, that has front office ambitions/would like to kick on in their career with a new focus. Treasury will have formed some part of your role, but we are not looking for specialists. Clearly we would consider existing Hedge Fund Treasury professionals. We would also consider exceptional IB Prime Brokerage candidates. Personality and communication skills are key and ideally you’d have worked on / facing an investment desk. You should be educated to degree level.
We are ideally looking to hire within a 75-100k base salary banding (however we are not strictly bound to this). Your bonus derives from the front office bonus pool and a top performer can expect a 100% bonus.
