there is a job posting on glocap for a hedge fund based in westport, CT that has the following description. does anyone by chance know the name of this hedge fund???
The firm manages global investments for a wide array of institutional clients, including foreign governments and central banks, corporate and public pension funds, university endowments, and charitable foundations. It is a highly entrepreneurial company, driven to success by: its process, its people, and its culture. They have invented, and keep inventing, superior approaches to investing and technology. They have fueled this innovation by recruiting talented, creative people from all backgrounds and promoting an invigorating and collaborative work environment. The firm is committed to the constant pursuit of excellence, and the belief that a meritocracy of ideas, not hierarchies, drives decision-making.
They are looking to hire the next generation of investment thought leaders. They seek candidates of all backgrounds who have the creativity, initiative, and intelligence to lead the Firm through current and future challenges.
They are based in Westport, Connecticut.
What are the keys to their success?
- A meritocracy of ideas: Argue. Criticize. Confront. Challenge. If they let bureaucracy and hierarchy guide their decisions, they won't get all the
best ideas. That is why they insist on a culture in which the best ideas win, regardless of who is expressing them or how they are expressed. Everyone
is required to generate ideas and actively participate in their objective critique and evaluation.
- Constant improvement: Never stop inventing. Sophisticated investors demand exceptional returns, world-class service, and seamless infrastructure and controls. They can deliver on this promise only if they stay at the cutting edge in understanding their markets and their business. No matter how good their performance, their systems or processes, they always focus on making them better.
- Principled management: Ask how things should be. Spot the obstacles. Reflect deeply on their root causes, and then answer with logic that will guide you and others to achieve these goals now and into the future. Capture this logic in simple language, and then share it. When the entire company acts in this way, this is management not through whim or or hierarchy, but through principles. This is the type of management they strive for at the Company.
