Head of Operations – Expanding $1bn+ AUM Hedge Fund – COO Progression – Large comp potential

Location: London, England, United Kingdom
Salary: negotiable

A Hedge Fund, that recently surpassed the $1bn AUM mark, are looking to hire a Head of Operations to support its ambitious plans to hit $5bn by 2020.

Reporting in to the Partners of the firm, the hire will manage + build out the existing Operations team (the team have coverage over Operations, Fund Accounting, Treasury and TA responsibilities). In addition, you will maintain + build out the operational infrastructure to support capacity for a $2.5bn AUM that they expect to quickly work towards. You can expect a strong Project Management focus in the role, especially as you will lead proposed fund launches. In addition, with strong individual performance and growth, the hire will begin to take on COO responsibilities. The aim is for the hire to become COO in 2yrs time (the existing COO is scheduled to move internally in to a different role by then).

We are looking for an existing Hedge Fund Head of Operations to step in to the role. It should be clearly evident that you are at a level to achieve COO progression within two years. You will have strong experience launching funds. We also prefer to hire a Head of Operations that can demonstrate solid experience with Fund Accounting and Compliance responsibilities/initiatives.

There is flexibility around base salary to hire the correct individual. You can expect a large % of that number as a bonus, with the variable dependant on both company + individual performance.
