About Our Client
An independent equity manager that focuses on active ownership. Founded by the in-house investment team that built and managed one of the world's largest engaged ownership mandates for a major Dutch pension fund, they are a young and ambitious firm with far-reaching goals to change the fund management industry. After launching three years ago, they already serve some of Europe's leading pension funds and have a strong track record of consistent outperformance.
They take a fundamental and long-term approach to their investments, generating superior returns through active ownership and advanced integration of stakeholder, sustainability and governance risks. They engage with the management teams of their investments and create value by catalysing long-termism, good governance and sustainable business strategies.
The team is made up of 13 professionals: 8 on investments and 5 on operations and administration. You will be the founding member of the business development team and the cornerstone of our efforts to attract new capital and provide world-class service to their clients.
The role is based in Amsterdam, with a start date as early as possible.
As the only Development Manager devoted full-time to business development, you will have lots of responsibility, and the potential to make a huge impact on the success of a fast-growing fund. This role is perfect for someone with a self-directed, entrepreneurial mindset that can manage a wide variety of short- and long-term projects and is comfortable working outside the confines of a job description. You will work directly with the CIO to attract new clients and service existing ones and will be expected to take on new challenges and responsibilities as you grow in your role. Needless to say, success in this role not only contributes to a far better, more sustainable long-term investment ecosystem, it also provides substantial advancement opportunity.
Your primary day-to-day responsibilities will include:
Leading and coordinating all communication with potential and current clients
Continuously re-evaluating the fund's marketing message and improving how that message is communicated
Analyse performance attribution of the investment portfolio
Learning about the fund's investment and engagement processes until they become second nature
Personally editing, updating all communication and marketing materials
