One of the world’s foremost hedge fund investment firms wishes to hire a skilled and knowledgeable Investment Risk professional, as they expand their range of sophisticated investment strategies, particularly in the Credit markets.

Role & Responsibilities

The Risk team has a broad remit; from detailed risk profiling of funds and strategies, through to the continual development of the risk computation framework as well as directly engaging with portfolio management on risk and performance issues, analysis and research.

This role is an exceptional opportunity to influence and drive change, with the role focussed on enhancing risk capabilities for new Fixed Income strategies, particularly Convertible Bonds, Credit and CTA strategies.  It will involve developing new, robust infrastructure and systems to augment the existing proprietary risk systems, enabling in-depth analysis of portfolios, constructing risk models and stress testing engines for the nascent strategies.

 

Skills & Experience

  • A thorough and robust understanding of the fundamentals of risk and performance metrics, and comfortable with calculating from first principles.
  • 5-10 years’ experience of investment risk gained at a leading firm, with experience in a hedge fund environment advantageous.
  • Strong technical knowledge in data management, analysis and manipulation skills within a developing IT environment.
  • Outstanding quantitative, statistical, analytical and problem solving skills
  • Solid experience of risk and performance measurement for non-equity hedge fund products.
  • Ability to work under pressure to produce accurate and timely data, with an attention to detail.
  • Excellent communication skills to liaise effectively with a variety of functions at all levels across the business.
  • A self-motivated and proactive attitude, with a proven record of using initiative to drive improvement in the risk and performance processes.
  • Detailed knowledge of at least one programming language, with SQL, MATLAB or Python ideal.

 

The team is multi-faceted and they spend a considerable amount of time working with the investment teams, so this individual needs the confidence, gravitas and interpersonal skills to effectively implement their ideas to support, advise and enhance the investment processes and the strategies under their coverage.

 

This is a rare opportunity for someone to join a premier global hedge fund and take ownership of the investment risk framework for new credit related strategies.  The company is dynamic in nature and is a pioneer in the hedge fund industry.  Its growth has been driven by a culture of recognising achievement and rewarding contribution.

 

Please note that only successful applicants can be contacted, due to the volume of applications.
