CassonX are delighted to be recruiting for this fast growing Asset Management business where the company is going through a huge amount of change and growth here in the UK, and are looking to identify those who would be excited to be part of the improvements and assistance in building high performing teams needed. CassonX are very excited to be one of only a few recruitment partners to this company and more information about the company can be found on receipt of a relevant CV due to the sensitivity and seniority of this hire.

To be considered for this role, we are looking to identify someone who has substantial experience in Market Data Management, with specific experience including inventory management, consistent finance management for the market data costs, and supporting initiatives that have a dependency on Market Data. This will include experience of negotiating licenses, managing relationships with vendors such as rating firms and Bloomberg, and familiarity with the relevant service contracts too. They would prefer to hire someone from the "client" buyside or those from a "service/custody" or "vendor" background but would consider those from an Investment Banks. The most important thing is demonstrable ability of working in a Financial Services firm and have an ability and appreciation for good quality data.

In person you will have a keen eye for detail and personality where you look for errors and like to seek resolution accordingly. They have a very broad set of funds they support, with exposure in the UK Pooled Fund market with Unit Trusts, Life and Pension Funds, but they also cover the Alternatives Market and Illiquid market with Derivative and Private Equity setups too. An appreciation for as many of those strategies is needed.

This responsible role will see you take ownership for the Market Data function, including the inventory and spend for the firm. You will act as the SME to the function, advising internal stakeholders on their market data requirements, and how this can be achieved across vendors, contracts, commercials etc. in a cost-effective manner. You will manage the vendor relationships and partner with procurement for contract negotiations, whilst strategizing a market data financial data management process that includes budgeting, invoice processing, reporting and oversight on expenses
