Front Office Investment Risk

  • Location: London
  • Salary: £65,000 - £75,000 Base + 40-50% Bonus

Job Description


My client is one of the leading buy side / asset management firms in the UK. They have a rich risk management culture and are a firm I have known for many years. The team has more recently shrunk their second line of defence in favour of a first line of defence which ultimately reports into the CIO rather than CRO.

As this team is not fundamentally independent from trading the obligations placed on the risk team are less from a regulatory perspective and more from a fundamental analysis perspective.

Suitable candidates will have both a technical risk knowledge as well as a highly commercial experience as an Investment Risk Analyst or Investment Risk Manager, or alternatively as a Portfolio manager. Candidates from a performance background will not be suitable as they lack the risk experience and knowledge.

Candidates will be expected to have some form of coding ability and be experienced in either fixed income or multi-asset as a risk professional.

Potential candidates must apply asap as there is substantial interest in this position as it is in the front office and I expect to put applications in shortly.
