Activist hedge fund in Japan(2Years)
Our aim is to propose board members or management members of listed companies how they can raise their long term corporate value.
Role: I was accepted by the Fund president to be Vice President because I achieved affluent experience in prior jobs.
As a vice president, my role was planning the investment ,due diligence, making strategic hypothesis of portfolio companies,
and keeping relation with management and board members.
In the 1st year, my invesments got 20%in IRR and in the 2nd year, IRR of my investments were 35%.
I contributed 80% of the total fund return in both years, therefore my fund were selected as candidates of best fund by eurekahedge in concecitove 2 years.
And although we invest in listed companies that have stock price flactuation in markets, I did not make any lost in any months.
I’ve met with individuals over Skype and I have trouble getting beyond their tech difficulties, clutter in the background, angle of the camera (up their nose), and their nervous habits (drinking water, clanking things on the desk, shifting around in their chair). Make sure all of these things are in order or your message will not be heard. The interviewers want to see that you are on your way to becoming a leader in the profession and being prepared is key. Second to that is being personable. Most people don’t understand that this involves being vulnerable, thoughtful, and well-rounded. Always have a couple of favorite stories in mind to share. Write then down on paper in front of you along with important career highlights and dates. Share your favorite book and how it’s meaning changed your approach to your work or be ready to share an embarrassing moment that you turned around into a learning experience. Good luck!
