We're representing a mainstream, well-established UK mid-market private equity firm. We're seeking to hire a newly qualified ACA from an accountancy practice firm. It will offer the appointee a broadly defined role with exposure to responsibilities across both fund finance and investment support.

The Fund Finance Analyst role is a broadly based fund accounting role with some commercial exposure. It's a great opportunity to develop a broad private equity skillset and an excellent entry into the industry, with a leading firm. Key responsibilities will include:

Accounting / Reporting: 

  • Reviewing quarterly financial statements for the funds and annual financial statements for subsidiaries prepared by the administrators
  • Reviewing quarterly investor reports for the funds prepared by the administrators
  • Liaising with the auditors regarding the audit of the annual accounts for the funds and all subsidiaries

Investment Support: 

  • Working closely with the investment and portfolio company teams to produce valuations of investee companies
  • Maintaining the returns models (actual and forecast) for all the Funds
  • Liaising with the portfolio company Finance Directors regarding information provided by them for use in valuations and investor reporting to ensure that it is consistent and correct
  • Preparation of regular cash flow forecasts for all funds to support drawdowns and repayment of funds to investors

Ad-hoc:

  • Responding to investor queries 
  • Preparation of KPIs and other metrics for presentation to the board

We're seeking a newly qualifed ACA from either the London office of a big 4, mid-tier or small accountancy practice firm. In different ways, private equity / financial services audit experience is as beneficial as having accounts preparation experience. It is an essential requirement to have a strong academic record, an ACA qualification and keen desire to work in private equity.
