Trader Assistant – Leading Hedge Fund – 60-100k base + excellent bonus potential
Location: London, England, United Kingdom
A successful multi-strategy hedge fund are looking to hire a Trader Assistant for one of its recent fund launches.
The recent fund launch, already with its own large AUM and double digit returns, require a Trader Assistant to join two existing, highly acclaimed Portfolio Managers. The hire will have sole TA responsibility for that particular desk. As there is a separate operations team, the hire will have a pure TA/markets focused remit that is very much be aligned to the business (the hire will be involved in strategy discussions / meetings and can have a genuine input on idea generation). This is a great role for an individual looking for a market facing role with great autonomy, but perhaps also for somebody that has future front office ambitions (as the learning potential from where the role sits is exponential).
We can look at candidates currently working as a Hedge Fund Trader Assistant or bright, technical Operations/Middle Office Analysts looking for a step up. We would consider IB Trader Assistants, Trader Support /Middle Office Analysts and Product Controllers if you have a very strong grasp of derivatives and a very impressive academic profile. We are open to level of experience.
The client has a flexible budget to find the right candidate, hence why they could pay up to a 100k base. You are part of the front office profit pool and can expect a large % of your base as a bonus if you perform to a high standard.
