Cobalt are working with one of the rising names within Real Estate Fund Accounting over the last 5 years, to help find a Qualified Fund Accountant, to work with the key UK and International funds.

Working in an ambitious and growing team, this newly created position within a supportive environment that recognises and rewards the actions of their staff. You can expect a role where you will be able to build a successful career with access to some of the most impressive investment and asset management companies in the world.

In the role you can expect to:

  • Oversee the preparation of the Management accounts at the asset and fund level, including reviewing files of your supporting team
  • Bank debt covenant reporting
  • Complete and analyse the Financial information for the Financial Statements
  • Preparation of the Consolidations and the Quarterly NAVs
  • Prepare Investor Tax computations, as well as cash-flow forecasting and treasury work
  • Plan the year end audit, liaising with external auditors and stakeholders
  • Working in line with IFRS, UK GAAP, LUX GAAP and US GAAP

Candidates should be able to demonstrate:

  • ACA/ACCA Qualified - ideally from a mid-tier accounting practice in a role mixed across audit and accounts engagements
  • Real estate or prior fund accounting knowledge will be highly beneficial, but not essential
  • Proven ability to prepare complete Financial Statements including consolidated accounts
  • Full understanding of UK GAAP and/or IFRS
  • Well organised, with strong communication skills.
  • Ability and desire to supervise and lead a small team of junior staff

This is an excellent and rare opportunity to secure a role within Real Estate without the prior industry exposure, and the continued success and growth of this organisation provides promising career prospects.
