COO - $1bn AUM Hedge Fund – 150-200k base + bonus + potential equity stake

Location:  London, England, United Kingdom
Salary: negotiable

An established, expanding, circa $1bn AUM hedge fund are looking to hire a new COO.

You will take on a small team and a non-investment function that requires revamping. The fund expect to push towards a $2bn AUM over the next 2-3yrs, increasing its complexity and running bigger risk - the COO will be tasked with accommodating those changes, in addition to driving efficiencies across the business and generally driving the wider business moving forwards. The COO will provide a strong ‘sounding board’ for the CIO and PM team. You will improve the cost base of the firm, develop much stronger PB relationships for the fund and generally much better relationships across many other service providers, most notably legal firms. The COO is effectively tasked with taking the business to the next level.

We are looking for an existing hedge fund COO. The preference is to hire a more junior level COO to step up / somebody that isn’t seasoned/moving in to their 4th/5th COO role for example. A solid academic background is preferred. You will have great experience in launching and developing specific funds.

The role has flexibility around base salary and offers an excellent bonus potential. Pending strong individual performance, the hire will acquire an equity stake in 6-24 months.
