Location: City of London, London Salary: £40,000 - £50,000
Type: Permanent Contact: Tom Davenport
Posted: 2 months ago

An established Debt fund is looking to appoint a Fund Accountant into its team based in Central London. This is a newly created position as a result of growth and the recent closing of a newly raised fund.

The position will report directly into the investment team and will be a somewhat standalone position in finance offering a unique opportunity to gain holistic exposure to the day to day workings of the fund. You'll also enjoy a heavily outsourced environment which has created a broad-reaching role where key responsibilities will include:

  • Working closely with the third-party administrators to ensure all fund accounting is both timely and accurate
  • Working closely with the third-party providers for the management company ensuring reporting is both timely and accurate
  • Production of Management Information and Investor Reporting
  • Helping manage the underlying investments and loan administration
  • Treasury input including drawdowns and distributions
  • Liaising with the auditors (seasonal)
  • Ad hoc reporting and project work

Requirements include:

  • Must be undertaking an accountancy qualification (ACCA/ACA/CIMA) or equivalent
  • Over two years of closed-end fund accounting experience is essential and can come from either a third-party administrator or in-house at a fund
  • Strong interpersonal and stakeholder management skills

A clear progression plan is in place with the idea to support a part-qualified candidate through to a Fund Controller position further down the line. In order to support this growth, the firm is offering an industry-leading study support package and a supportive environment to ensure you have all the tools you need.
