My client is a global asset manager with over £400 bil AuM based in the city. While they are a global asset manager, their London office is ran almost like a boutique having the support of the parent firm but remaining autonomous. This role is working closely with the head of product development to take ownership of database systems and manage 3rd service provider relationships. It is a real chance to be creative and use problem-solving skills to make processes more efficient using VBA and automation.
The Product Development Team provides full lifecycle management of the cross border fund ranges. Such funds are distributed globally to a wide range of clients.
The ideal candidate would be a self-motivated team player with a minimum of 4 years experience in either an asset management company, fund administrator or other service provider to the asset management industry. The candidate must be able to prioritise individual and team workloads and deliver high quality, accurate work to meet standards required by internal and external parties.
Whilst the role sits within the Product Development team a significant proportion of activities of the team are related to the ongoing product management of the fund ranges, and this role will be more focussed on product management rather than new fund launches. This is a role with total career progress whereby the remit of the role will constantly be expanding to include more product development/ management, with the intention of moving into pure product role once BAU processes have been automated out.
