It’s a good year to be a talented hedge fund marketer or a salesperson with a deep network. Small and startup firms are struggling to raise funds this year, and anyone who can deliver the goods will be highly valued. A few recruiters specialize in the area of sales & marketing of alternatives, and they are the contacts to know about. This hedge fund sales job, exclusive to Hedge Fund Search Digest, is based in New York. It also deals in a part of the market where many funds see opportunity right now.
