The focus will remain on high net-worth individuals across North America, Europe and Asia Pacific with a focus on impact or values-aligned investing.

Job Description

The Firm’s recent move to Addepar as our back-office data aggregation and investment accounting system will vastly improve the efficiency of generating the analytics to review client portfolios across multiple dimensions, allowing us to centrally account for and calculate client risk and performance data. Alvarium is also rolling out a sophisticated risk and performance analytics / modelling tool, Jacobi, which integrates with Addepar.

The combination of these two new platforms requires a new focus on investment operations and data integrity / integration. Alvarium is creating a central Risk & Reporting function as part of this new focus. Investment Data & Performance will form part of this function. This team will:

1. Manage all datapoints that drive regular client reporting in Addepar and, in time, analytics in Jacobi

2. Assume responsibility for the validation of multi-asset class performance and subsequent client reporting generation

3. Contribute to projects related to investment performance across both platforms, as well as process automation

The Analyst will be responsible for performing a variety of functions associated with the maintenance of all investment accounting data in Addepar (account ownership structure setup, transactions booking, valuations booking, attribute and price management, as well as automated data feed reconciliation) and contribute to the build-out of automated workflows to better support these data. The initial focus will be to support all Reporting and Portfolio Management data and performance needs for a sub-set of Investment Advisory teams in two locations (London and Lugano). As the team grows in scope and size, the Analyst may also contribute to data related to Investment Advisory teams in other locations as well as data / processes held in Jacobi and other systems.

The role will combine portfolio accounting data management with an understanding of performance measurement. The successful candidate(s) will support entities in London and Lugano. The role also requires a strong understanding of multi-asset class, multi-currency investment management portfolio analytics and performance measurement.

You will work initially with the Alvarium Director of Integration and the Integration team to stand up and build out necessary workflows and documentation, as well as get up to speed with the project so far.

YOUR ROLE

  • Assume responsibility for the validation of multi-asset class performance and generation of regular client reports
  • Ensure investment data integrity and compliance by performing data cleansing, audit and validation, and recommend ways to strengthen data integrity, quality and availability across the enterprise

  • Establish audit, documentation, governance and integrity routines to maintain the quality of investment data and performance validation
  • Contribute to projects related to investment performance across both platforms, as well as process automation
