Experienced Legal Professional Sought for Global Investment Manager, Based in Central London
Our client is one of the world's largest independent investment management firms that serves an institutional client base across over 50 countries.
Our client is now seeking an experienced legal professional to join their highly regarded legal team, largely to support the growth of their markets and derivatives business functions, which covers most sectors of global capital markets (equity, fixed income, multi-asset and alternative strategies).
You will support the trading of futures, swaps, repurchase agreements on behalf of their clients. In doing this you will work closely with the internal business teams to assist them in addressing complex regulatory and commercial issues.
We are therefore looking for candidates who have experience in:
- negotiating a range of master agreement documentation e.g. ISDAs, GMRAs, MRAs;
- negotiating clearing agreements such as futures, swaps and listed options;
- the regulations affecting the trading/markets/derivatives arena.
Though this role has a capital markets focus, you will be supporting a high-calibre and experienced senior legal team of lawyers who support all areas of the asset management business and are not pigeon-holed into defined areas. Consequently, you must be the type of candidate that prefers a varied role and can pick up new concepts quickly.
We are open to applications from candidates from either private practice or that are already from a relevant in-house team.
Please note that this role is not a purely legal role, nor it is a path to a training contract or legal counsel role.
Interpersonally, you must be someone who is:
- positive, collegial and team-orientated;
- it is also important that you are organised and detail-orientated;
- and can take ownership of your workload whilst being able to recognise when to escalate matters.
Much of the work you will engage with will be client-facing. It is therefore essential that you are professional and possess excellent communication skills and can foster long-lasting relationships with both the legal and business teams across all levels of the organisation.
Our client is a very reputable asset manager and in return will offer a very competitive compensation package for a challenging and rewarding role, and the opportunity to form part of a collaborative and supportive legal team.
