Fund Controller role – Boutique Hedge Fund – £80k - £90K plus uncapped bonus!

Location: London   Sectors   

We are working with a highly profitable boutique hedge fund which has had positive annual returns since inception. They are looking to hire a fund controller to report directly into the COO.

This is a great opportunity for someone to gain exposure across all areas of a hedge fund whilst sitting amongst the investment team and very close to the portfolio managers. You will learn about the trading strategies of the fund, rationales for decisions and be part of the overall fund success. The will report directly into the COO and cover the fund accounting. They outsource a large portion of the fund accounting, and this role will manage this relationship, review their work and then spend time doing performance analysis with commentaries, preparing reports and distributing across the team. On a daily basis, this role will be responsible for producing the NAVs, managing any currency hedging, and treasury management. It is a low volume trading environment so the BAU work will take around 75% of your time, the rest of your time will focus on projects for example creating performance related dashboards or automating processes.

For this we are looking for candidates who have previously worked in a hedge fund fund accounting role (either in a hedge fund environment or fund administration). Candidates should also be comfortable with NAV calculations and speaking to a range of senior stakeholders (including Portfolio Managers).

The firm has incredibly low turnover, this reflects the generous compensation structure. A considerable portion of the annual bonuses are distributed across the team (100%+ often achieved). They have modern offices based in Mayfair and have an extremely positive and collaborative environment.
