Posted: about 1 year ago

A vibrant Alternative Investment Manager is looking to appoint a Fund Controller into its Finance team based in Central London. The position is newly created as a result of the exponential growth the fund has been experiencing, which has included two recent fundraises.

Responsibilities wise, the Fund Controller will enjoy a broad and hands-on remit which encapsulates some core finance with plenty of commercial exposure, including modelling and valuations work - that goes beyond just sense checking. The incumbent will also be responsible for overseeing a junior who will be responsible for taking care of transactional finance and there will be an opportunity to delegate reporting aspects to the junior as they continue to build on their experience.

Requirements for the position include:

  • You must be a qualified accountant (ACA/ACCA/CIMA) or equivalent.
  • It is ESSENTIAL you have experience working with closed-ended fund structures - this can either be from an audit setting (i.e. Big 4/Top 20 firm) or working in a fund or third-party administrator.
  • Some experience working with valuations is preferred.
  • Excellent academic background - ideally with a mathematical focus.

A competitive salary is provided in the region of £55,000-60,000 with excellent bonus potential targeted around the 35% mark.

Please apply online for immediate consideration or get in touch directly with Thomas Davenport for more information.
