London, United Kingdom
Working directly for the COO and with a dotted line in to the Portfolio Management team, a unique opportunity is available to a budding hedge fund professional. We are looking for a recent, high quality graduate to support a top performing hedge fund investment desk. The hire will be very well trained to quickly take on a remit that stretches across operations and trader assistant responsibilities. As the firm outsource all back office/operations functions, the hire will be trained to oversee and manage what the outsourced provider are doing, making sure that the process runs smoothly, efficiently and at the correct cost. You will investigate any issues, breaks in their work etc. and bring them to resolution. You will also analyse the work that they produce. As a result, you will provide daily commentary and analysis to the CIO/Investment desk. You will also be trained to directly handle all trade bookings for the investment desk and 'investigations'. The hire will also handle reconciliations from both the Prime Broker and fund administrator side.
We are looking for a 2018 graduate (although we could consider a 2017 graduate looking to break in to the hedge fund space), with a relevant degree from a top-ranked UK university. You should have a passion for financial markets. You should possess advanced excel skills.
The role will offer a 25k starting base salary and a bonus that can make up a large % of that number for a star performer.
