I am working with an asset service provider with a presence in Limerick, seeking an analyst to join their Hedge Fund Investor Accounting team. They are seeking candidates with experience in hedge funds or good technical knowledge of performance fees.
Reporting to the Team Leader of Investor Accounting, you will join a team responsible for evaluating and reconciling investor level NAV’s weekly and at month-end. The team also verifies transactions, management fees, performance fees and income.
This position will be offered on a contract basis to begin (circa 12 month+) and offers a positive work culture which supports their employees' efforts to balance work and home life (something they adopted even before the pandemic).
The ideal candidate should have a year or two experience within Hedge Funds as a minimum, but ideally experience with data analytics. Their system is internal, therefore no specific knowledge is required in this regard.
You will be dealing with Investor Services and the Financial Reporting Teams. A typical day includes dealing with emails received from the offshore team, check when reports are due and liaise with the client to show them what to expect. Your role will also involve working with management and performance fees (fee calculations).
At the early stages, you will receive training and a more experience peer to guide you in your first few weeks. They will show you how to use their systems, who to communicate with, and what their SLAs and deadlines are.
