Head of ALM/Optimisation

A niche insurer in the City is looking for an actuary with good capital management/balance sheet optimisation experience to join the growing CIO team.

Reporting to the Head of Capital Optimisation, you will be involved a variety of activities to optimise their investment strategy for annuity funds:

Identifying new asset classes
understanding their capital treatment
developing hedging strategies
identifying direct investment opportunities
liaising with investment banking/asset managers and the in-house team

You will probably be a qualified actuary (or similar) but they’re flexible in terms of seniority. Key will be the person’s personality, communication skills, stakeholder management experience and ability to deal with investment banks, asset managers, etc. (Either having done it before of having the potential to do it!) There are a lot of technical people in the team so the emphasis is on a wider skillset.

The team does a wide variety of investment work and a lot of the hands on execution themselves. As well as the usual suspects, other opportunities include loans to infrastructure projects such as housing, utilities and transport plus credit financing.

My client will pay between £75k-120k+ for the right person.
