The team operates across asset classes (in particular Equities and Credit) in Markets, yet on the private side of the wall. Our clients are non-corporates, in particular hedge funds and other investors, and transactions generally involve special situations as well as episodic and strategic financing and hedging trades, on occasion in connection with a role of our Banking partners.
Your responsibilities as new hire would include the following:
Leveraging the Firm's connectivity into hedge fund clients for private side, strategic business
Sourcing, structuring and pitching private side trade ideas to our clients. Our transactions are generally bespoke, connected to a strategic event, and involve a degree of complexity; it would be your responsibility to develop these trades with our clients
Managing the execution, approval and documentation process of transactions. Sales functions as the central coordinator of the execution process, which means that you would be responsible for liaising and collaborating with a range of internal stakeholders, including our trading and control functions
We are looking for a new colleague with the following core skill set:
Ability to engage with and adapt to a diverse set of clients at senior level. The way of operating differs materially across our client base, which requires a flexible approach to management of our relationships
Cross product expertise (or ability to swiftly build such expertise), including in structuring and execution of complex trades. We differentiate by looking across asset classes and our deals generally come with bespoke or non-standard features
Ability to work independently. Strong connectivity across the Firm's functions, including control functions, is a requirement for the successful execution of nearly all of our trades
Experience in Sales, Structuring or Trading is helpful.
