A roundup of the latest job postings and trends from emerging managers
Emerging hedge funds best prospect for job-seekers?
Should hedge fund job-seekers be looking at emerging funds? Absolutely, says one recruiter, who thinks they offer the best prospects to those looking for jobs in the hedge fund industry.
Richard Risch, CEO of the Risch Group, tells Business Insider:
The big guys are seeing redemptions at a record rate, so hiring in that sector is non-existent or extremely limited. Today I would (and do) tell candidates looking in the hedge fund space to focus on the emerging manager segment. It is also the only segment of the industry we are seeing search work from today.
“Base pay is always lower at emerging managers, but could very well include equity. In one case a few years ago, an emerging manager took off, was sold and a couple of people received an eight-figure payout. As far as strategy, it seems the only ones consistently receiving net new institutional flows are systematic equity market neutral funds.”
