  • To build out a pipeline of suitable prospective investors with the capacity to invest in alternatives credit spaces;
  • To take full ownership of the exciting business strategy;
  • To attend regular meetings with the key potential investors (in some cases alongside the PM);
  • To manage relationships with both existing and potential investors, updating them on the firm’s activities and performance;
  • Work with the wider firm to ensure marketing and sales materials are of the highest quality.

Ideal candidate

  • To have vast experience raising funds across technical hedge fund strategies;
  • To have deep relationships with the Superannuation funds, pension funds, consultants, and smaller allocators;
  • Extensive experience working with credit-focused products;
  • High-level written and verbal communication skills;
