I am working on an interesting mandate for an exciting fintech venture. Several of the worlds largest Asset Managers have come together to build a platform that is developed for Asset Managers by Asset Managers. They are working in conjunction with some of the best technology and consultancy firms in the world.
The product is being built from scratch, using the latest cloud-based technology. It already counts some of the worlds best known Asset Managers as clients so its an exciting business to be involved with from inception.
They intend to build their own valuations, P&L and fund accounting processes based upon their trade management platform. There will be full support in terms of project management, BAs, tech management and developers, however they need somebody to lead this work to develop an approach, design the system and oversee the build.
They are looking for a very experienced or Head of Fund Accounting/Product Control who has hedge fund experience who is perhaps looking for a slight change in working environment. You will want to utilise your experience to join a rapid growth tech business
Whilst the role is different from a traditional BAU/line position it is an opportunity to join a business that will be a global name in the near future at the beginning of its journey. From there you will be part of a leadership team that develops the product and has a leading role in its revenue generation. Apart from being technical, the role will become client facing as you are the product expert within the firm.
