A very successful, multi-billion dollar AUM global hedge fund are looking to make a key hire in to its London office.
The hire will run the market data remit for Europe, reporting in to a global head. The role will see the hire manage European vendors, including new vendor analysis, selection and negotiating contracts. This role will also be tasked with identifying opportunities to improve current process and deliver better tools and services to the business, as well as conducting training on global Research Team-related processes and tools. It is predominately a hybrid analytical & relationship management role - you are supported by a Market Data Admin team. The role comes with great autonomy and responsibility, facing off to/managing the most senior internal and external stakeholders across a variety of business areas.
You should possess a solid academic profile. We are looking for candidates with 5-10yrs market data experience (a very strong junior could however be considered to step up), ideally with good exposure to the alternatives space. You will have great knowledge of market data services/vendors and their applications.
Having completed three similar market data manager hires over the past 18months, Mondrian Alpha feel that the total comp package being offered by the firm is comfortably in the upper quartile of what buy-side firms pay for a role such as this. In addition to an attractive base salary increase, a non-hedge fund candidate could realistically receive a bonus that is a multiple of what they currently earn.
