A market leading, global hedge fund are looking to make a newly created trader assistant hire for one of its major new US fund launches. The role will start in London, alongside the PM and trader, before relocating to their New York office in H2 2021.
Sat on the investment desk, with a dual reporting line into the fund’s portfolio manager & head trader, the hire will cover a broad remit across line TA tasks, risk management, execution oversight and street facing responsibilities. We are not averse to considering candidates that have ambitions to move in to a core front office role in 2-3yrs time. Alternatively, as the sole TA for the new fund launch, growth prospects are phenomenal as we expect that the New York team will grow significantly over the next 2-3yrs.
Candidates must have a top tier academic profile (STEM) and solid experience as a TA/middle office professional in a leading IB or hedge fund. Any advanced tech skills are preferred.
We are looking to consider London based individuals that would be happy spending 3months+ in the London office, before permanently relocating to the firm’s New York office. Our client will take care of the full visa process, costs etc.
The role is flexible on budget to get the best hire - you can expect a 10-20% increase on current base. A top performer will earn a bonus that is a large % of base – a large proportion of that can be guaranteed as a minimum for 2021. The firm offer a market leading benefits package that includes a large pension. The hire will also receive an additional relocation package (travel, initial accommodation in New York, moving expenses allowance + a weighted pay increase when arriving in New York) once he/she moves to the New York office.
