A boutique hedge fund that have steadily expanded to a $1bn AUM are looking to make a newly created operations hire.
Reporting in to the head of operations, the hire will manage hands on operations, middle office, post trade analysis and treasury tasks. You will handle relationships (queries and issues) with the various clearing firms/PB’s that the firm use + face off to clients/investors to tackle any queries on fund performance and/or data. The hire will also collaborate with the quant/developer, to enhance current systems and infrastructure + will be expected to take the lead on troubleshooting issues. A bright, ambitious junior should see this as a great opportunity to move in to a role with a broad, technical remit – you will be trained in VBA and Python.
You will be joining one of the most exciting recent London hedge fund launches to work for. The company have market leading performance for their sector (+25% last year, +15% already this year). The culture is excellent – they have a relaxed environment, dress down (flip flops and shorts in the summer for example!), a break out area with Xbox, pool and table tennis + an excellent work life balance from which the office is empty by 5pm each day (you are expected to work 830-5 each day, but there is no need for ‘face time’ either side of this - they are also flexible if an individual would like to work from home occasionally)
We are looking to hire a very bight individual with 2-3yrs operations experience ideally, from an IB or a hedge fund. The hire must have an impressive academic profile (2:1/first), extending to evident numerical ability. The candidate must have advanced excel skills - VBA skills are preferred, as is an aptitude to pick up advanced VBA skills and ideally Python.
The role will pay a 50-60k base salary. The firm have an exceptional bonus culture, with the current incumbent (moving internally) havening earned 100%+ bonuses in each of the two years he has been in the role. A strong performer in this role can be confident that this will be one of the best paid jobs at this level, in the London hedge fund space.
