The Role:

As the Head of Fund Management, you will be responsible for setting and executing the funding strategy at the centralized fund level. Reporting directly to the executive leadership, this role demands a seasoned financial strategist with extensive experience in managing large-scale investment portfolios, developing funding strategies, and engaging with investors.

You will define and manage the investment strategy, establish investment guidelines, and monitor market trends to ensure the best practices for our client. This role involves a comprehensive approach to both debt and equity funding, aligning with the broader business objectives and ESG policies. Additionally, you will develop pitch decks, identify potential investors, secure institutional and private funding, manage joint ventures, and foster strong relationships to ensure successful execution.

Key Responsibilities:

  1. In this role, you will develop a centralized funding strategy with clear goals, objectives, and instruments. Identifying the realistic quantum of investment capital required through 2030 and defining asset class and thematic investment strategies will be key components of your responsibilities. You will establish investment guidelines for asset selection within the fund portfolio and monitor market trends to track macro and microeconomic indicators for best practices.


  1. You will execute due diligence and close committed investment capital, ensuring detailed reporting to investors with the Asset Management team providing financial planning and analysis. Measuring the fund's portfolio efficiencies and implementing the fund's investment strategy with appropriate instruments will be critical.

Certain activities, such as debt execution, will be outsourced to Finance, while you will define potential divestment strategies and execute divestment deals.


  1. You will be instrumental in raising equity capital by issuing shares to investors, funds, and JV partners, or securing debt capital through lender agreements. Developing long-term financial plans and contributing to the Funding Strategy team will be crucial for achieving the target state.


  1. Engaging with investors will be a vital aspect of this role. You will source capital through investor identification based on the fund strategy mandate, pitching opportunities, and relationship management. Initiating and managing relationships to source group funding requirements (debt/equity) and maintaining investor/lender relations will be essential.


The ideal candidate will hold a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, Finance, Investment Management, or a related field, with an advanced degree preferred. You will have a minimum of 15 years of experience in fund management, investment strategy, or related fields, with at least 5 years in a senior leadership role overseeing large-scale investment portfolios. A proven track record in sourcing and managing diverse funding sources and driving performance improvement is essential.

You will possess strong financial analysis, budgeting, and modelling skills, with excellent leadership, communication, and interpersonal abilities. As a strategic thinker, you can translate vision into actionable plans and initiatives. Experience navigating complex regulatory environments and managing risk effectively will be critical.
