Main responsibilities of the Hedge Fund Administration Officer will include;

  • As our client's hedge fund offering evolves, support the growth of OTC/Private Assets including Loans, PPNs, bankruptcy claims, and private equity from an operational perspective.
  • Autonomously manage the entire trade life cycle from trade confirmation, settlement, funding, event processing, and NAV calculation.
