As part of Institutional Banking, the Fund Accounting team supports the company by ensuring client’s net asset values are accurate and timely. These are processed daily and needed for shareholders as it allows them to buy in or sell out of funds they are invested in.

As a Fund Accountant III you will be responsible for all functions related to the daily calculation of the net asset value for multiple mutual funds. Fund Accountant III’s are responsible for performing the accounting, pricing, review and reconciliation functions for multiple funds. The fund and/or security types increase in complexity with the tenure of the accountant. You will also do the following:

  • Prepare and review preliminary trial balance and NAV calculation for multiple funds

  • Monitor and analyze income and expense accruals to ensure GAAP compliance

  • Analyze corporate action application for GAAP compliance

  • Reconcile cash settlements and position quantity to the custodian and prime broker records

  • Investigate and resolve cash or position discrepancies by collaborating with the custodian, prime brokers, transfer agency, advisor, and/or portfolio managers/traders

  • Review and resolve trade detail exceptions to ensure transactions are accurately reflected by collaborating with the advisor/portfolio manager or trader

  • Analyze security pricing exceptions to ensure proper prices are used in the calculation of the NAV

  • Partner with various internal/external parties to ensure compliance with SEC regulations, IRS, and GAAP reporting regulations

  • Coordinate audit materials as well as responses to audit inquiries

The team works hard but in a fun, relaxed environment where the dress code is casual. Associates will complete tasks individually but still have a team around them to offer support when needed. An inclusive environment where senior leaders go out of their way to meet new associates.

We’re excited to talk with you if:

  • You possess a bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Finance or equivalent experience
