Middle Office Trade Support – Systematic Hedge Fund
Permanent | £45-50,000 | London | | Posted by Dominic Regan | 08.07.16
Black Swan Group Hedge Fund team is delighted to be working with a leading systematic hedge fund who is looking to add to its high performing middle office team.
The COO is looking to engage with candidates with between 1-3 years’ experience from a tier one investment bank or hedge fund with excellent post execution experience. The fund trades in a range of asset classes giving huge exposure to the successful incumbent.
You will be responsible for managing the T0 trade support functions across all funds including trade booking, amendments, confirmation, and affirmation. You will be expected to utilise your knowledge and expertise in operations twinned with technical skills in Excel (Up to VBA ideally but not essentially) to create a simple STP platform, freeing up time to support the front office on projects.
If you are looking for an opportunity to move to the buy side of the market or move to a fund that can offer more both vertical and horizontal trajectory, this opportunity should be of interest. People in this team who have performed well in the past have moved into management roles, risk and front office support roles internally.
In addition to the experience mentioned above, excellent numerical skills is a prerequisite given the systematic nature of the fund.
