Job description

  • Newly-Created Position

  • Core/Core-Plus Real Estate Fund

  • Location: Singapore, APAC Coverage

The Company 

The organisation is the Real Estate Funds Management arm of a major real estate investor and developer, the latter holding a substantial global AUM of US$35bn. In APAC, led by an internationally experienced leadership team, the young and energetic team of the Fund platform has delivered a positive track record across a number of core and core-plus funds, whilst a strong balance sheet enables ongoing investment across a broad range of assets. Presently, it is on a mission to bolster the team with additional proposed hires including a Finance Director to cover first-tier markets. 

The Position 

Based in Singapore whilst reporting to, and working closely with, the Executive Director, the appointed Finance Director will provide leadership for all aspects of the finance, MAS Compliance, fund structuring and financial operations function of the platform whilst overseeing a small team. The appointed individual will develop and maintain the company’s business plan, annual budget, consolidated financial statements, corporate governance and reporting. The Finance Director will be involved in high-level corporate strategy with a need to liaise with shareholders/investors, provide support in the organisation’s investment decision-making process and build a robust fund management strategy and structure for the growing portfolio of assets. There will be a need to spearhead MAS regulatory compliance of the fund management company and/or any other regional regulatory requirements, tax authorities and external stakeholders.

The Person 

Aside from demonstrating an entrepreneurial zest, the preferred candidate will offer a Degree in Finance or Business with a CPA or CA equivalent and a minimum of 10 years’ financial management experience within a real estate investment / fund management / Private Equity environment incorporating MAS regulatory compliance. Whilst this experience is likely to be complemented by some prior oversight of local and/or international real estate investments and underpinning Fund and Trustee structures, the company is equally keen to consider a qualified and experienced individual offering alternative, non-real estate fund experience (Private Equity / Hedge Fund or similar).
