A global Leading Multi-Billion Dollar London based Hedge Fund are hiring for a collateral management specialist to join their treasury team as they develop their organizational structure to adhere to new regulations (UMR and Reg IM).
The fund is one of the most successful in the world, and has seen exponential growth in the last 24 months. The treasury function has grown to support this, and hence the necessity to now make a new hire to run the collateral process in adherence to new regulations is imminent as the fund looks to convert to an in-house collateralization process to enhance financing efforts.
The ideal candidate will have a breadth of collateral management experience, ideally within a top-tier IB or Tier 1 Investment Management firm and will be an OTC product expert, with knowledge of both initial and variation margin calls. The hire will be required to lead the transition project so will be a focused and diligent individual, with an excellent academic pedigree and an active problem-solving and analytical mindset. The mandate for the candidate will see the individual exposed to the Head of Treasury, as well as the Global Head of Operations and Portfolio Management team from day one, thus will provide incremental growth potential for a strong performer long-term.
The progression for the hire once the initial in-housing project and process is established will evolve into a managerial oversight role which will be responsible for continuous optimization, liaising with the operations and the front office functions to ensure a globally functioning smooth mechanism.
The role will most likely pay a circa 60k base salary, as well as a large percentage of this number as a bonus figure for an exceptional performer. Large pension contributions, free meals, gym membership and social events all form part of a market-leading benefits package.
