Head of Operations **HONG KONG** - Large US Hedge Fund (New HK Office) – COO progression – Large guaranteed package + relocation available (+ low tax) – H1 2019

Location:  London, England, United Kingdom
Salary: negotiable

A hugely successful US Hedge Fund, currently in process of an exponential build out of its APAC business, are looking to make a key-non investment hire in to its Hong Kong office.

The Hong Kong office currently consists of 2 Portfolio Managers and a Head of Trading, however the plan is to have an office of 15 by summer 2019, with this particular hire being vital to the firm’s plans. We are looking to a hire a ‘Head of Operations’ to build out + manage all of the firm’s APAC business’ Operations & Middle Office. We prefer the hire to start in January 2019, however a start date during Q1/Q2 can still be possible. Given where the Asia business is in terms of development, you can expect to quickly build out a team, however you should also expect to be heavily hands on before the necessary building blocks are in place. The Head of Trading will lead the build out of internal infrastructure and you will work closely to him on key projects associated with this (especially with regards to system build outs). This role will progress in to an ‘Asia Pacific COO’ position, with timelines dependant on individual performance + business growth.

We are ideally looking for an existing Hedge Fund Operations Manager to step up in to the role. Naturally, we would also look at an established Head of Operations. My client has a strong focus on academic pedigree, so please only apply for the position if you are educated to degree level at a top worldwide institution. You should have a strong level of project management experience associated with infrastructure development.

The firm have a large budget to secure their ideal hire. Beyond an attractive base salary increase, you will be offered a potential sign on bonus/guaranteed minimum bonus for 2019 + a very attractive relocation package (extending to a year one housing allowance). Please also consider the fantastic tax advantage of working in Hong Kong VS London.
