Job Description

Our growing company needs a reliable, organized senior analyst to handle the analytical and research needs of our firm as well as advice concisely on business matters that impact the firm. We are a family office that manages and allocates our own capital. We actively invest and trade in Pakistani equity markets and foreign equity markets. The size of our actively managed local equity book exceeds most mid-tier mutual funds and we want to build a team of professionals who can help us grow our book size by generating ALPHAS. We understand and believe that this can only be achieved by attracting the best talent in the relevant field.

We've also been involved in various property development projects, both residential and commercial, involving our own land bank or in partnership with other developers. The next frontier for our organization would be to expand into venture capital and private equity deals. We have recently signed up with one of the largest Venture Capital Fund currently operating in Pakistan and became their Limited Partner (LP). Going forward we want to develop the expertise in this venture capital space and be able to take exposure; by directly cutting cheques to entrepreneurs. In addition to all this, we are also developing a mechanism to extend financing to the local SME segments with aggressive mark-ups. We are a small team and the candidate will be involved with all levels of decision making so we are eager to find someone who fits well into our culture. We are looking for a candidate to join us who would improve our framework for understanding investment opportunities so we can analyze and execute them better. Someone who is passionate about learning enjoys collaborating in a team environment and is hard working will excel in this opportunity. 

The following provides some parts of the job. As long as the candidate has strong fundamental knowledge of finance, works well with spreadsheets and has decent communication skills - it should not intimidate the candidate that he/she has not done this before as the job itself will have a lot of training.

  • Prepare financial feasibility for various business decisions. This could be something as simple as calculating IRR on a commercial multi-year rental agreement to help prepare a feasibility study for a multi tower residential project on the outskirts of the city
