with No Comments

R HIGHLY NEGOTIABLE PLUS ANNUAL PERFORMANCE BONUS-

Affirmative action candidate.

Our client’s CIO has said the following re their business and requirement namely:

“We are a relative value house from equity philosophy an process point of view.  High performance culture but discourage star mentality.  Our portfolio construction process is team based but each analyst has full accountability for the models of stocks allocated to them, so every analyst gets to see how outputs from their models feed through into the ranking table and eventually to the portfolios.  Thoroughness is key, I am stating this as we interviewed many “big picture” type candidates who just wont fit into our team.  Good performance is highly remunerated.  Our engagements with candidates involves getting to know the thought process of the candidate and in the end the candidate chooses a stock to illustrate her/his modelling thought process from begin to end.”
