Experience level
Director
The role is a first-time appointment. The successful candidate will be responsible for establishing the finance function and providing key operational and finance support to the partners. Key responsibilities will include:
  • establishing robust finance, risk management and operational procedures;
  • financial control of the business, including expense and liquidity management;
  • overseeing the budgeting process and preparation of management information;
  • structuring of the firm's funds for regulatory and tax purposes;
  • oversight and co-ordination of the fund reporting, control and administration;
  • co-ordination of the annual audit process;
  • ensuring the firm meets its external reporting obligations on a timely and accurate basis; and
  • leading on operational matters such as those relating to HR, IT, property etc.

It's an excellent opportunity to join a well-capitalised start-up, and there is clear potential for the role to evolve over time. Once a strong working relationship with the founders has been established, the right candidate could also add value to the firm's structuring, execution, marketing & fundraising activities and other areas to the extent they are able to.

The appointee will be a qualified accountant (ACA, ACCA, CIMA or equivalent) with finance team experience working in a hedge fund, with exposure to the fund accounting. Our client could also consider someone at the Financial Controller level in a hedge fund - the client is open to either level. Attitude and cultural fit will be essential and hedge fund is experience is also essential.
