We are partnering with a key player in the growing Exchange Traded Fund/Exchange Traded Product (ETF / ETP) market. Along with more traditional strategies, this pioneering asset manager is unlocking the potential in areas such as AI, cryptocurrencies and cloud-based investments.

Now, an exciting new opportunity has emerged in their product team for a lawyer that will work closely with various business teams to develop new products whilst also supporting the maintenance of the current investment portfolio.

More specifically, the successful candidate will:

  • Work hand-in-hand with the product development team to structure and launch new products;
  • Draft new and update existing fund and product documentation (including prospectuses, trust and security arrangements);
  • Co-ordinate the development process across the business to execute successful launches;
  • Advise on strategy for future products by preparing business cases and preparing product proposals;
  • Advise the business on current and upcoming regulatory matters.

This role would suit a lawyer that wants to be hands-on and immersed in a business; someone that wants to gain a tangible sense of creating and shepherding a product to market, whilst addressing the legal and commercial issues at play throughout.

We are looking for lawyers that:

  • Are UK or Commonwealth-qualified with at least 4 yrs. PQE and strong academics;
  • Have some degree of asset management or funds experience;
  • Appreciate the regulatory landscape that governs the investment management arena.

Experience in the following is a bonus, but not a pre-requisite:

  • UCITS funds (either UK, Ireland or Luxembourg domiciled);
  • ETFs, ETPs or Exchange Traded Commodities/Currencies (ETCs).

We are open to receiving applications from lawyers that are in private practice, though some in-house experience (either through your current role or an in-house secondment) is desirable.

Matthew Bloxham: matt@aysearch.com   07900 692 209

OR

Celene Yon: celene@aysearch.com 07944 390723

 

Due to a high volume of applications, we will only respond to those we deem suitable for the role.
