Senior Portfolio Manager (Seeding Platform)

Company: Thurn Partners
Location: Walton
Posted on: April 10, 2021

Job Description:

Company Insight:The firm is a highly reputable > 15bn alternative focused fund of funds, who provide a seeding/investment platform for established Discretionary or Systematic Portfolio Managers looking for a greater capital partner. This fund of funds runs a multi-strat 'exclusive manager program' that has been established for over seven years (20+ managers) with a six-year track-record of double digit returns annualized. They are currently looking to expand their portfolio of seasoned managers running high complexity quant strategies. The Opportunity:The founders actively provide seed capital and business support, investing in entrepreneurial individuals with an established track records (> 2years), to form their own business (you own the entity/IP). Here you will run capital exclusively for a fixed period. Following that, you can agree to a new fixed period of exclusive capital, or they will help you raise external funds (or a mixture of both) - most renew an exclusive agreement unless they have prior sticky capital they'd like to incorporate. Team size and structure is based around your requirements. Set-up and annual fixed costs are factored into the initial agreement. You will have access to state-of-the-art infra and fully provisioned data (market, reference and alternative). Fee agreements are clear and favorable and they are open to what the specifics (capital allocation/sharpe/drawdown limits/spin-up time/team size etc.) look like. There is no netting risk from other investments as everything is formulaic on top of fixed costs. The Scope:

  • Establish and grow your own firm, focused on high return strategies, in partnership with a strategic capital partner.
  • Implement proven strategies, likely focusing research on alpha generation, signal generation, portfolio construction/management, execution and TCA.
  • Build a team to diversify your business or accelerate your spin-up/implementation time.
  • Strategic capital for growth. Strategies that can scale while keeping return profiles are of course, highly investible - Capital will be provided to the level at which it is most optimal for returns and no pressure is applied to stifle your parameters. Capital will also be made available for future business diversification, should you wish to tack on additional recourse and enter new markets.
  • Most trades/asset classes are supported by the platform, however strategies that have a latency sensitivity will not suit this set up.
  • Work from any location around the world or make use of dedicated office space. Investments are not bound by physical location or country, however a certain handful of countries are not permitted from a regulatory perspective (most will be obvious).
  • Upfront capital to de-risk the transition period and help with personal costs during any potential non-compete. Experience Required:
    • Experience working within a systematic fund, automated proprietary trading firm or relevant division in a sell side organisation.
    • You need to have managed real money (not just paper) and have at least a 2 year trailing positive track record in the core strategy you would like to pursue. Track PnL should be minimum high single/low double digit MM Net of fees, based on a Sharpe of > 1.5.
    • For those wishing to scale and grow a business, a background in managing people and business planning is desirable, however individuals without this experience will be considered should they show high potential combine with a solid track record.
    • You should have experience designing and implementing a strategy from ideation. If you have taken over an existing strategy and not been through the set up and implementation process, it is unlikely that this opportunity will be the most suitable for you. Next Steps:
      • Should you wish to discuss this further and understand if this venture could suit your track and aspirations, please reach out to for a confidential conversation.
      • Please allow 1-5 working days for a response to any enquiry.
