A leading high frequency prop trader based in New York City seeks a Senior Fund Accountant to assist in the strategic growth of the business. Reporting directly into the CFO this will prove to be a pivotal role for the business and see the incumbent leading a small accounting team in the production of core financial and management statements, alongside all necessary fund accounting duties (e.g. NAV and fee calculations). You will support the infrastructure team on P&L reconciliations whilst liaising closely with internal teams including operations, legal, compliance and trading. Given the nature of the role there will be a number of analytical ad hoc projects here also.
This role requires the successful candidate to hit the ground running so it is essential that you have a previous track record in a similar role. This could be demonstrated by a professional accounting qualification (e.g. CPA) with several years post qualified experience in a hedge fund environment. Given the fast nature of the business you should have an exceptional level of attention to detail and be able to multitask efficiently. A strong working knowledge of excel would be advantageous in your application.
