SENIOR BACK OFFICE MANAGER

SENIOR BACK OFFICE MANAGER

Posted - 29 Aug 2019

Location - LONDON, UK

 

 

 

5+ years of experience.

 

An outstanding opportunity has arisen at a Single Family Office based in West London. They have been established in London for a number of years with an investment team looking after the family’s liquid assets. They are a very active family still running their operating businesses.

 

This is an important and varied role covering broad responsibilities but in the main, taking full responsibility for the operational management and oversight of the portfolio.

 

Investments are multi asset – so stock picking, ETFs, funds, bond picking, fixed income strategies, derivatives and currency trades, long only funds, corporate bonds, hedge funds, etc.

 

There is not a high volume of trading and the expectations are for the highest level of accuracy, ensuring reporting is kept fully up to date and accurately reflects the positions held in the portfolio.

 

The successful candidate will be expected to take full and complete responsibility for excel reporting, acting as “father” of the excel files and taking the greatest of care with them.

 

Responsibilities will include:

  • Performing NAV calculations
  • Need to be excel savvy and able to understand the formulas and write new ones where needed
  • Real time valuations using Bloomberg (excel reporting system is linked to Bloomberg so market prices are kept updated in real time).
  • Next day Verifications of trades, generally be the first person in the office for to ensure that this is done as a priority
  • Reconciliations (make sure all booked correctly), Breaks and corrections being done as a priority (as above).
  • Need to be able to navigate the file and take responsibility for document management (both physical and digital files of all documents related to the portfolio).
  • General Back Office duties – this is not onerous as there tends to be a low trading volume.
  • MUST MAKE SURE THE REPORTING FILE ACCURATELY REPRESENTS THE POSITIONS OF THE PORTFOLIO

 

This position will suit someone dedicated to the role, who enjoys the monitoring, reporting and maintenance responsibility and NOT anyone seeking a springboard to the front office.

 

This is a small Family Office so experience in a similar environment would be ideal.

 

They are supportive and they work closely in a tight team. For the right candidate, they will help in any development of skills and training but are looking for someone who sees this as their long term career.

 

Remuneration will reflect the responsibilities of the role and the experience of the candidate and given the culture of the team pulling together, the discretionary bonus tends to be good, especially for this sort of position.
