This is a newly created opportunity working for an absolutely terrific asset management business boutique with an enviable long track record of success
Aside from the broad and highly entrepreneurial nature of the role, my client is simply a fantastic business that is going through a very exciting stage in its business cycle. This role represents a true career opportunity
A new team is being created to take ownership of the delivery of fund product within the firm, the governance of product and the production of regular output as a function of a product's existence
You will be required to take ownership of this team and ensure timely development of fund product and the ongoing maintenance of my client's product management process, with particular focus on product development (bringing the funds to launch), product governance and maintenance, as well as manage the production of all regular product literature, including monthly factsheets, KIIDS, PRIIPS, DDQ's, regular presentations, third party data requirements.

Product production - To manage production process of all regular product literature, including monthly factsheets, KIIDS, PRIIPS, DDQ's, regular presentations, third party data requirements
Product governance - To ensure that all regulatory requirements are accurately incorporated into all firm outputs, for instance that prospectuses, KIIDS, PRIIPS and factsheets and all output produced by the firm is compliant in an ever changing regulatory environment

It is most likely that your career will be on an upward trajectory and you will be highly motivated to work for a boutique asset manager within a role that offers you a very broad range of responsibilities
You will have had previous experience of working within a marketing literature production role within the asset management industry (or be happy to have that as part of your role), however, the key experience you must have will centre around atypical "Product Management" duties from an asset management firm which will have provided you with in-depth knowledge of the asset management industry, investor types, distribution channels, competitor landscape, breadth of investment products etc.
