• Work closely with the Partners and the Board to establish, grow and maintain relationships within corporate & public superannuation funds; sovereign wealth funds; foundations & endowments; insurers; financial institutions; private banks and financial intermediaries (e.g. financial advisors, accountants and brokers);
• Product & marketing material preparation and delivery, involvement in LP events and representation of the firm more broadly;
• Perform and prepare competitor analysis on trends relating to VC more broadly;
• Internal & external stakeholder reporting;
The target candidate will have strong relationships with local institutional investors and evidence of having raised meaningful capital from this channel.
This busy and diverse role will suit an energetic, well organised person with a passion for technology and venture capital. The successful candidate will be used to dealing with the requirements of superannuation and institutional investors, is committed to leading key business initiatives, and committed to becoming a long term contributor that benefits from the firm's success.
