Global asset manager of high market standing and major brand across wholesale and retail markets, seeks a specialist investment facing compliance professional to support its product research and development activity. The role forms part of its investment management compliance advisory team and functions as part of a global network, as such interaction with other locations beyond EMEA is required. The job holder will provide regulatory advice at the early stage of research initiatives taking into consideration fund structures and financial instruments, as well as ongoing support throughout the life cycle of a fund launch including draft prospectus wording and investment restrictions. Funds are domiciled in either Ireland or the UK, therefore a working knowledge of UCITS, MiFID and FCA regulations is a basic requirement. Funds are primarily passive and evenly split between equity and fixed income with some derivative use so familiarity with all of these investment vehicles is required. Prior experience with an asset manager in a role supporting the investment management function is sought.
