    This is not your regular, low-stakes, investment management role. If you consider yourself a titan in the investment game and are sustained by meeting your KPIs, pitching yourself to our client should be a breeze for you.  

    Our client, a leading player in the impact investing industry, is seeking a Senior Fund Accountant with 2+ years post-articles experience in the financial services sector. An interest in high-impact environmental and social development, and financial returns is crucial.

    As the Senior Fund Accountant for our client, your expertise would encompass a variety of elements. Vital to this role would be the finalisation of the investment register and the valuation interface between our client and the fund administrator. The thrill you derive from building complex financial models, capital account statements, ad hoc investor reports, the review and finalisation of reporting packs, annual financial statements, and government reports makes you uniquely suited to this role.

    You are undaunted by and have an active interest in the intricacies of maintaining the Fund Model to ensure an accurate and timely budget and forecasting preparation and review. You would be responsible for the review of fund closing workings, income calculations, and manage debtors aging. Your acute knowledge of the industry would see you easily determining investor allocation per project, managing the drawdown process, and reviewing and finalising equity and loan schedules, interest calculations, and settlements.

    Our client is looking for someone proactive who has the capacity to collaborate with international stakeholders. In exchange for your commitment, you will gain unparalleled exposure to global renewable energy funds and the opportunity to become a specialist in this growing field.
