Contributors to your success:

  • 2-4 years in public accounting or in accounting advisory is a plus
  • Experience in investment/derivatives accounting and operations is a plus, but not necessary as long as you have the aptitude and desire to become a subject matter expert on these topics
  • A desire to contribute to the success of a fast-growing business
  • Excellent organizational, multi-tasking, self-motivating and time-management skills
  • Strong attention to detail
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills
  • An interest in finance will help you in understanding the economics of the derivatives transactions and how to account for these transactions
