A market leading, multi-billion dollar AUM global multi-strategy hedge fund are looking to make a newly created junior level hire.
The hire should be a ‘second-jobber’, moving from the IB space and in to a hedge fund for the first time. The role of ‘TA’ essentially covers operations (settlements, reconciliations), middle office (P&L analysis, valuation work, NAV) and core trader assistant (overseeing execution, trade bookings, risk management/VAR) responsibilities. The ‘Analyst’ hire provides the individual with an exciting internal rotation scheme supporting different desks / head portfolio managers every six months, with greater weight placed on treasury/collateral and trader assistant tasks as you develop at the firm. By developing such a broad product knowledge and solid relationships with the desk, exciting progression opportunities await this hire. In the past 2yrs, TA’s at the firm have then progressed in to trading, junior portfolio manager and business management roles.
We are only looking for candidates that have truly exceptional academic profiles. You should have 2-5yrs top tier IB operations/trade support/middle office/trader assistant experience. It is possible to consider hedge fund candidates (currently working at large firms). You will have a personality that suits a highly pressurised front office environment.
The role pays up to a 55k base salary. A strong performer will earn a 50%+ bonus. An excellent benefits package is also offered (including a large % pension, daily food allowance, fully subsidised gym etc.).
