The details

This real estate fund is looking for an energetic, dynamic and talented fund finance professional who wants to be part of the growth of the firm. Once 'normal' business resumes they expect to be very active on the deal front and are offering this individual to be an integral role in the process. This firm is well known in the market and has completed a number of headline deals in the previous years.

The breadth of the role will attract those with the Controllership fundamentals of running a fund but more importantly wants to play a significant role in supporting acquisition and disposal processes and investor relations.

Investment management

  • Active asset management role of fund SPVs;
  • Close collaboration with the investment team on investment activities, e.g. leading financial and tax due diligence process for new target investments, providing financial and structuring advice;
  • Transaction support responsibilities include reviewing SPAs, preparing funds flow, reconciling completion statements and working directly with advisors and the investment team to agree terms;
  • Review, interrogate and provide input into the fund and deal model to reflect the financial and corporate structure of the funds;
  • Liaise with the investment lead and operating partners regarding information for fund and investor reporting to ensure consistency and accuracy
  • Collaborate with the investment team to produce property and fund level returns using IRR and money on money measures, and Carried Interest Waterfall calculations;

Fund management

  • Manage external consultants in all local jurisdictions to maintain appropriate and accurate accounting records;
  • Supervise and coordinate the quarterly investor reporting cycles and review of quarterly NAVs;
  • Maintain awareness of IFRS and other relevant developments to the financial statements, and supervise annual financial reporting and audit process;
  • Manage investment tax structuring, transfer pricing arrangements and tax compliance across jurisdictions;
  • Manage fund cashflow, debt covenant, fund costs and oversee capital calls and distributions;
  • Manage all finance-related investor correspondence
  • Project manage the property valuation process alongside the investment team and local asset managers.

Given the nature of the role, we are looking for a Fund Controller (or equivalent level of experience) who is looking for a chunkier position.

  • Qualified Accountant (ACA, ACCA, or equivalent), typically 4- 8 years post qualification experience;
  • Real estate or private equity experience is essential
  • Excellent team player with a proactive approach in engaging with all internal stakeholders;
  • Strong project management and communication skills;
  • Able to work autonomously and have outstanding attention to detail

This is an urgent hire and thus the firm is looking to meet candidates through video conference w/c 8th June.

On Wednesday Marks Sattin collaborated with Charlotte Tilbury in Covent Garden to host a networking event for senior finance professionals within the financial services market. The night was a huge success, with emails pouring in from clients complimenting us on our event. The evening was planned around a master class which was hosted by two of Charlotte’s top make-up artists, using one of our clients as a model. They showed all ladies how to create a glam evening look while taking them through the full range of new and existing products on offer. All whist we sipped on prosecco and nibbled delicious treats. After the masterclass the ladies were treated to a personalised mini lesson where they could choose from a lip, eye or skin tutorial using the best products for their skin type. It was great to watch all of our clients get pampered whilst trying out new looks.To end the evening we gave each lady a voucher to redeem on Charlotte Tilbury products, the team took great care of them and walked them around the shop floor to find their preferred products. This event was a great opportunity for us to catch up with some of our hiring managers in a relaxed environment. We learnt about potential new business coming up, current contractor extensions as well as general market information. It was also a great opportunity to network with some future senior finance professionals that we will be working with. We would like to thank everyone that took the time out of their busy schedules to attend, the evening was a huge success and we hope to see you again at another event during the year!

British Formula One ace Lewis Hamilton is no stranger to the headlines, and his attire is often subject to media scrutiny. A recent race day trip to the Sahir Circuit in Bahrain cast Lewis’s clothing into the limelight for a different reason due to his decision to don local dress. The driver’s social media activity seems to suggest that his efforts were a way of trying to fit into Bahrain’s local culture – which he had high praise for.   Fitting into a culture is not just important for those visiting or conducting business in a foreign country. Just like different countries, different workplaces and organisations possess their own distinctive working cultures, and fitting into them is an important part of building strong working relationships and becoming a motivated and committed employee. Accountancy firms have distinctly different working cultures, as do in-house finance teams in big businesses, and accountants need to integrate when moving between jobs, while bringing their own flair to the role.  Hiring managers and HR teams have a strong appreciation for candidates who make the effort to adapt to a new working culture quickly. While new working environments can be daunting at first, meeting lots of people and showing a willingness to work in fresh ways will almost certainly pay dividends. It’s also good to work out what the ‘norm’ is; some accountancy firms expect employees to get involved in extracurricular activities for the business, for example, and not doing so is perceived as under-performance.  On the other hand, when trying to adapt to a culture, candidates should ensure they don’t go too overboard and risk making a Prince Philip-esque blunder..

‘The only constant is change’ has never rang more true and there is no facet of business that has not been changed dramatically by this year’s global events. It is not about adjusting to any ‘new normal’, it’s about making sure you can adapt adequately to this new, more rapid pace of change'. During May 2020, we produced a survey for our contacts to understand how their business was reacting to the pandemic and to gauge overall market sentiment. We received over 130 responses to key questions relating to their thoughts, reactions and predictions regarding the unprecedented level of change we are experiencing. Although market conditions are changing daily, the ease of lock down has brought a wave of positivity as we look to rebuild on the disruption of the past few months. With this in mind, the below report outlines some of the findings from our research, and our predictions for the future. Covid-19 survey
