An established fund manager and discretionary portfolio management organisation, our client enjoys an excellent reputation. They are now seeking to recruit a fixed interest/bond fund manager in London.
The role will entail managing one of the firm’s funds, working with the wider analytical team to provide reports to the CIO whilst promoting the fund to the firm’s investment management team. The funds are managed in accordance with agreed mandates and must perform against established benchmarks, whilst satisfying all regulatory requirements.
Candidates will have a fund management background and have wide-ranging experience in the bond market. Applicants will ideally hold the full CFA designation although consideration will also be given to those with the relevant background who are Level 6 or 7 qualified.
Communication skills, technical knowledge (particularly within the bond market) and judgement are paramount to the success of the role. Any applicant will also be team orientated; this is a small team so each fund manager will assist one another as applicable.
In place is a generous starting salary, a full benefits package and full support in relation to further qualifications. Also on offer is a bonus scheme that rewards to performers.
This position is likely to attract a lot of interest. Those individuals without all of the relevant skills (experience, qualification status etc.) will not be considered. Any applicant will need to have specific bond/fixed interest fund management experience.
This role is London based but will entail regular travel to Manchester.
