This is an exceptional new position that has been created with one of our leading asset management clients in Singapore. Our client is a prominent regional asset manager, with a considerable presence in Singapore over an extended period.
This position is a Director level role leading the team that manages external vendor relationships to this asset manager client. The vendor relationships are varied and include several custodian relationships, both global and local. There is also a large set of technology vendors that provide various asset management operational and front-end support to the business, that need to be managed and coordinated at a senior level. This role will be leading a small team of Analysts and Senior Analysts that currently engage extensively with these various external vendors. This Director-level position will act as a senior lead in vendor engagement and report to the Head of Investment Operations, based in Singapore.
The ideal applicant would be a candidate with a strong investment operations background built over several years. You would need to be university educated, ideally with post-tertiary education combined with a CPA/ACA or technical education. You would ideally have exposure working for both a custodian and an asset manager, preferably in multiple locations.
Ideally you will have exposure across multiple areas in asset management operations & middle office, including across investment operations, fund accounting, performance analysis, client services and relationship management. This role will have extensive internal and external interaction, so very strong written and verbal communication skills are paramount. Any prior experience directly managing or negotiating asset management vendor agreements or contracts would be highly regarded and directly relevant.
There will be five interviews for the position, primarily with Singaporean-based senior management across Operations, Accounting and Technology. Our client is prepared to be patient to get the right person to fill this new position, although the process will move forward quickly for the ideal candidate.
The salary on offer is generous, although variable depending on specific experience relevant to the role. We expect the compensation to be circa $175-200k SGD + a generous annual bonus at circa 30% of base.
Our client will prefer Singaporean citizens/PRs, although is open to candidates based offshore with a strong desire to relocate to Singapore for the role. However, no relocation package will be offered.
Please kindly make an application in confidence, or call our office in Singapore on +65 6622 5755 to learn more about this exceptional, leadership opportunity with this rapidly growing asset manager in Singapore. We look forward to hearing from you.
