Flow of new jobs in hedge funds continues Back  
This month we introduce a new column - ‘Top Jobs in Finance’ in which we shall review employment trends and opportunities for senior staff in financial services, and in finance generally. A number of international financial services companies ramped up their recruiting drives in March, with jobs in hedge funds, securitisation and aviation finance featuring. If you have a job, or if you are recruiting for a significant top job which you think should be profiled here please contact us with the details (email: topjobs@finance-magazine.com).
RBS Aviation Capital, Royal Bank of Scotland’s aerospace capital solutions arm, is continuing to expand its Dublin headquarters, and as a result is recruiting for six positions - an originator to develop new business, three lawyers, a structured finance specialist, two operations and risk analysts, an engine management specialist and a residual value specialist.

In the aftermath of September 11th, the sector was not perfoorming well, but hopefully the recruiting drive by RBS Aviation Capital, which was formed when RBS bought IAMG back in 2001, is a sign of renewed growth in the sector.

The hedge funds sector continues to thrive, and Pioneer Alternative Investment Management Limited (PAIM), the Dublin based hedge fund manager, is looking for a senior fund accounting manager and a senior fund administrator for its growing fund accounting division.

Also in funds Citigroup, which is one of Dublin’s largest fund administrators, is looking to recruit a fund administration manager and a trustee manager.

The securitisation market continues to perform well in Dublin, and a sign of the development of this sector is the fact that a European banking and financial services group, and not a law firm, is looking to recruit a securitisation lawyer. The role of the lawyer will be to oversee its secured asset-backed note issuance programme.

Professional services
Lawyers are currently in demand, with a number of IFS companies looking to recruit suitable candidates. Apart from RBS Aviation Capital, LGT Bank in Liechtenstein (Ireland) Limited and LGT Fund Managers (Ireland) Limited, are looking for a legal advisor. In addition, Citigroup is recruiting a corporate solicitor to its legal and compliance team.

The announcement that HVB Bank was to spin-off its real estate division into a Dublin headquartered bank, Hypo Real Estate International, was one of the most positive news stories of 2003, and resulted in significant employee growth at the bank. Over 2003 the bank grew from 37 employees to 105, and says it will recruit for a further 35 positions in 2004. One of these positions advertised during March is for a tax manager, to define and implement the bank’s international tax strategy.

Irish Life Investment Managers, who introduced the concept of indexation in fund management back in 1996, is looking to recruit an index fund manager. Irish Life presently has over €2 billion of assets under management in indexed funds. The firm is also looking for a fixed income specialist for its fund management team.

There continues to exist significant opportunity for accountants with around 10 years post qualification experience to obtain a financial director/controller position. For those with less experience in this field, Intel and UPS are looking for graduates to join their trainee programmes.
