Trader Assistant/Research Analyst – Hedge Fund – Hybrid Front Office remit – 50-70k base + bonus

Location:  London, England, United Kingdom
Salary: negotiable

A $1bn+ AUM Hedge Fund going through a strong period of expansion are looking to make a newly created hire.

Reporting in to the COO, but with a ‘dotted line’ report in to a PM, the hire will operate with a broad remit. In the simplest sense you will take ownership of operations/middle office tasks, however those tasks are all outsourced, so this is merely an outsourced management + analysis exercise that will take up a limited part of your day. You will be the sole TA for the trading desk (which will take up time), extending to execution responsibilities when necessary. The hire will also take on project management + research responsibilities that are set to grow with time – responsibilities can surround the cost + logistic implications of launching a new product/fund/jurisdiction, or for example it can be carrying out research around how competitors trade that product, what its value is, drawbacks etc. Progression in the role is varied as the hire can move their career towards a ‘head of operations’ role or just as likely a ‘research analyst’ role in time.

It is a pre-requisite that the hire must possess an excellent academic profile. The hire will have 2-5yrs experience working in either a hedge fund or an IB operations/trade support/middle office role. The preference is for a top tier IB graduate scheme candidate, as we prefer to focus on an individual that would view this as a unique step up and new focus in their career.

The role will pay a 50-70k salary with a conservative 25-50% bonus estimate (a higher bonus can be expected for an exceptional performer).
