My experience at Man Group - multi manager business in London
Fund Of Hedge Funds Operations Analyst (Former Employee) – London, ENG – January 9, 2014
I spent three years working for Man Group which is one of the largest fund of hedge funds in the world in their multi manager business. I was in the investment operations division and in the trade execution team for all FOHF trading decisions. My role was essentially a 'Portfolio Managers assistant' whereby all investment decisions made by the portfolio manager then needed to be dealt with by my team.
This meant we needed to ensure all trades were sent out to the market ie the correct custodians and executed accordingly. We then needed to reconcile all trading activity externally to ensure all internal systems were in line with what had been executed in the market.
The hardest part of my job was there was no career progression and as a result I took voluntary redundancy to allow me to look for more exciting opportunities to grow in my career. I did however enjoy the work culture at Man Group despite it being a very negative environment and met some great people whom I learnt through during my time there.
