The firm are in a rare bracket of recent success stories – they have had their best Q1/Q2 performance in Europe for the past 5yrs, have expanded its AUM and they continue to grow headcount in multiple areas of the business, capitalising on competitors failing to source top new talent at this time. Their position of power/success includes an ability to continue launching new funds, on time, hence why we are looking for a new hire to join a new investment desk/strategy launch within the firm. Sat on the trading desk, you will specifically take ownership over operations & trade support responsibilities for that bank of PM’s/traders. The nature of the role means that project work is also key, surrounding the launch, ongoing development of the desk and more generally ad-hoc analytical work carried out for the traders.
Candidates must have a very strong academic profile (ideally A’s at A level + we prefer 2:1/first STEM degree from a Russell group university where possible). You should ideally have circa 5yrs experience working in hedge fund operations, however we are open to exceptional juniors that can step up, or more senior candidates looking for a change. We could potentially consider candidates from top tier investment banks. Any advanced tech skills would be beneficial.
Based on Mondrian Alpha’s 2020 salary survey, this role will offer a total comp package that comfortably places it in the upper quartile of what London based hedge funds pay operations analyst’s. The perception of a typical US culture is not relevant within this firm - You will work in a fun, vibrant, positive environment that has a European approach/attitude towards its culture.
