A market leading, global multi-strategy hedge fund are looking to make a key, newly created operations hire.
As a result of huge recent expansion for its emerging markets business, we are looking to hire an SME for their investment team. The new hire will be the point-person in operations for the EM business - in addition to running the line process and being the point of escalation, both project management and relationship management components are key to the role. The hire will be tasked with ensuring that the function can handle a much higher volume of business in the EM space, successfully trading in many new markets / jurisdictions.
We are specifically looking for senior operations / trade support candidates, buy-side or sell-side, with good experience in emerging markets. You must have an excellent academic profile (red-brick university 2:1/first).
The firm have a low attrition - in addition to excellent career progression, they comfortably pay its staff in the upper quartile of what London hedge funds pay operations staff (based on the 2021 Mondrian Alpha salary survey - 141 London based hedge funds took part).
