The Opportunity:
  • Genuinely the best opportunity I get for very bright graduates to work within the middle office of a hugely successful boutique asset manager / hedge fund. I have placed circa 6 people into this team over the years, a large proportion of which have moved internally into exciting front office roles, however, you will need to prove yourself first
  • The opportunity is to develop your experience within financial services (ideally asset management), complete your studies (IMC; CFA) and forge a long term career within this business
  • Strong IT skills are required (Excel) and the culture of the business is to use IT to streamline processes and in order to make the business as efficient and scalable as
  • The role is very broad. You will effectively act as the conduit between the various investment teams and the outsourced service providers (Prime Brokers / Administrators). This position is effectively a "control" role, ensuring that there are no errors or breaches
  • You will be required to provide the Fund Managers and other key internal stakeholders, including Sales & Marketing, Risk, Finance and Compliance with close support, with an emphasis on resolving queries in a timely and efficient manner
  • More specific duties will include assisting with Trade Execution, NAV verification, FX Hedging / Cash Management, MI reporting, Performance Attribution calculations, reconciliations, trade settlements
  • You will also have the opportunity to assist with project work, and, gain exposure to a range of fund structures and investment styles (across both long-only and hedge fund strategies)

Your Experience:
  • You will be a relatively recent graduate with a super record of academic achievement. You MUST have a 2:1 degree (minimum) from a top-tier University, within a numerical or finance focused degree. Please do not apply unless you have been awarded a 2:1 degree of higher
  • It is likely that you will have some financial services related work experience, whether formally or via relevant internships or industry placements, along with a real desire to work within a dynamic and entrepreneurial investment management business
  • It is preferred that you have some familiarity with the workings of a fund middle office, but not essential
  • My client has expressed a demonstrable interest in candidates who may have some experience from a custody or settlements background - this is because elements of the settlements process are due to be brought back inhouse
  • Strong IT skills are important... an advanced knowledge of Excel key. Further knowledge around SQL / VBA would be helpful
  • You will possess a "can do" attitude and a strong work ethic. This firm will expect you to be able to add value and contribute quickly to the team
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal are essential

The Company:
  • Hugely ambitious boutique asset manager with a fantastic track record of success across both hedge fund and long-only investment strategies
  • Culture that promotes both personal and professional development
  • Situated close to excellent transport links within central London
