The offshore funds industry has enjoyed great success over the last 2-3 years and has traditionally been one of the strongest sectors in all of our jurisdictions. Even in the current global climate of uncertainty, this industry continues to thrive.
Due to the nature of the offshore fund market, with its appetite for candidates with technical ‘back office’ experience, fund accounting and fund administration recruitment are our key areas of expertise. Our clients primarily look for candidates who are part or fully professionally qualified (ACA, ACCA) and/or have substantial fund experience. Examples of the roles we recruit include:
- Fund Accountant
- Fund Administrator
- Fund Accounting Manager
- Head of Funds
- Associate Director
- Managing Director
Financial services institutions, fiduciary services businesses and professional services, as well as more specialized providers, all require fund professionals. The resulting range of opportunities – from fund administrator for a niche fund services provider to head of funds for a large international organization – makes working offshore a very attractive option, as does the quality of life, the excellent reputation of offshore financial centers and the beneficial tax systems.
Financial services institutions, trusts, funds and professional services firms all require experienced and qualified people to aid them with their offshore work flow. As such, the ICSA qualification is highly sought after in all of our jurisdictions with organizations considering both part and fully qualified candidates, depending on their level of additional experience.
All candidates, especially those with onshore-only experience, will have to adapt to the new structures and regulations that govern their jurisdiction. This ‘transition process’ is usually achieved with ease providing they have the support of their employer.
