A highly impressive, innovative and pioneering hedge fund is urgently looking to appoint an experienced fund accountant into a newly created role in their London office. With significant above market returns and a successful history of outperforming the markets, this is an ideal role for an experienced fund accountant to make the move to a small finance team that forms an integral part of this top tier organisation.
The role will be hands on and involve all day to day administration, fund accounting (shadow NAVs and financial statements) and associated reporting and analytical work for a multi-billion dollar fund. It's very much a typical in-house position and will involve a range of hands on tasks including some oversight of the outsourced corporate accounting as well. The role will work alongside the CFO providing an immense learning curve for anyone keen to nurture their longer term commercial and business credentials.
We're ideally looking for someone with excellent academics or equivalent with formal accounting qualifications preferred although not essential. You'll need to have worked for a hedge fund manager or hedge fund administration business with a keen interest in financial markets. Beyond this it will be down to personality with the CFO keen to hire someone smart, switched on, intellectually curious with a positive personality, sense of humour and strong desire to deliver a best in class service.
The role is looking to make a speedy hire so please apply ASAP if you're immediately available or on a short notice period.
