Firm Background

Cameron Hume (www.cameronhume.com, “the Firm”) is the leading independent fixed income manager. Founded in 2011 by Guy Cameron and Christian Torkington, the Firm has grown to 11 staff managing assets of GBP600M. The Firm anticipates further growth and now wishes to appoint a Compliance Officer, to play a broad role in helping the Firm to both comply with regulatory requirements and achieve best practice in other aspects of investment management and sustainability.

The Candidate

The candidate will have a broad experience of financial services compliance, ideally within the investment management industry. Reporting directly to the Managing Director, the candidate will bring a strategic and commercial approach to compliance, thinking first of clients and secondly of the Firm and its staff. Critical success factors for the role will be the curiosity required to scan for emerging regulatory issues of significance and the initiative to help the Firm prepare for such issues in a smart and efficient way.

The Firm takes a broad view of compliance, considering not only regulatory and legal issues, but also financial compliance, compliance with best practice and, critically, compliance with an increasing range of responsible investing and sustainability norms and standards. The right candidate will relish the challenge of learning about emerging norms and standards and helping to translate those into practical policies that will benefit the clients of the Firm and help the Firm to achieve best practices.

The Firm is willing to consider a wide range of candidates: candidates who may be very experienced and more mature in their career; and candidates who may be able to demonstrate strong career momentum and are now ready to take the next step.

Given the size and nature of the Firm, this role would be suited to a candidate who wishes to work part time, possibly within a school hours/term time contract.
