CFO/COO (Boutique Hedge Fund - Senior Finance Professional Looking to Make the Step-Up)

Location: London, England, United Kingdom
Salary: Competitive + Strong Bonus

A Mayfair based boutique hedge fund is looking for somebody to join the senior management team and help run the business and lead all support functions.

The fund has a strong track record and proven strategy that has served them well in the last 10 years. With the current CFO/COO announcing his imminent retirement, the time has come for a new CFO/COO. It’s a dynamic business and you will have the opportunity to have ownership over all operational and support functions of the fund.

The remit of the role is to run the business but below are a summary of some of the specifics:

  • Fund accounting/shadow NAV ownership
  • Full ownership of the management company accounting
  • Oversight of established operations team
  • Involved in the business development and marketing process
  • Full regulatory oversight
  • Oversight of IT and HR
  • Due diligence process and procedures

The role will suit an ambitious and experienced finance professional currently working in a hedge fund who is looking to make the step up to CFO/COO. You will need to be a qualified accountant that has experience of overseeing the fund and corporate accounting departments. They are looking to give the opportunity to an exceptional Financial/Fund Controller/Head of Finance/Finance Director that feels they have the capacity to take on a broader remit. No prior operations experience is required as there is an established team in place.

You will be given the opportunity to grow into the role and develop the additional skills that are required outside of your current remit. You will genuinely need to enjoy working in a fast-paced environment and have the ability to pick things up quickly.
