Sitting on the investment desk, the hire will report directly into the head trader for the firm's flagship European fund. The role is available as the current incumbent is moving into a trader role (having been in this role for 2yrs), so this is a direct replacement – this is with a view that the new hire can also be trained, develop, prove themselves as an exceptional performer and also progress internally in to a trader role. This is an incredible opportunity for a junior to potentially progress into a risk-taking role for a leading global hedge fund within 3-5yrs.
As the sole TA for the flagship fund's investment desk (there are other TA's at the firm), the hire will take on responsibility for all admin that the traders shouldn't handle (FYI there are also separate operations/middle office teams) – this includes trade bookings, managing existing trades, modelling trades, pricing and risk management. 'Ad-hoc project' work for your bank of traders is also key. You will also be the 'go between' for the trading desk facing off to the quant strategy/treasury/operations teams.
Candidates must have excellent academic profiles (this will be key to the filtering process). Whilst we are flexible, candidates will most likely be current IB/hedge fund operations/middle office/TA professionals, with 2-5yrs relevant experience, with ambitions for front office progression.
The role will pay a 50-65k base salary. The hire can take comfort that he/she will be part of front office headcount and therefore part of the lucrative front office bonus pool.
