Global Head of Data Technology - Asset Management

Head of Data Technology required to join a Global Asset Management organisation.

The role will have global oversight of data related operational data stores, MDM and distribution platforms. This is both a strategic and delivery focussed role and as such you must have a strong understanding of forecasting, roadmaps etc, but also be driven by delivering to the business.

The Data Technology team is responsible for implementing and enhancing a newly developed data infrastructure which will replace the existing data feeds and connections across all applications. As such you will support a large number of highly visible programmes and be liaising with senior management in various departments.

You will have full ownership of technology solutions across all data domains including instruments, prices, benchmarks, positions, trades, etc. Due to this you will require experience in financial data, SDLC and data integration programmes. Alongside this, knowledge of a number of the following will be required; database design, Service-oriented Architecture, feed design and implementation, global team management, quality control, and release management.

You will be responsible for a global team of Project Managers, Business Analysts, Developers Testers and Support Analysts and the corresponding budgets. The ideal candidate will currently be in a Global Head of Data IT / Head of Data Technology role for another Global Asset Management firm and will be managing a diverse team of a similar structure. It is also likely you will have a background in Data/Business Analysis, Data Integration or Database Development in order to understand the more granular technical areas.

As the Head of Data Technology you will be responsible for the delivery of multiple complex strategic projects to source, match, master and distribute core financial instrument data across the organisation. You will have an experienced and technically skilled team to aid in the delivery of these projects in order to meet the business objectives.

Since you will be delivering global programmes an understanding of the investment management value chain is essential and delivering global programmes in this environment are vital. As the Head of Data Technology you will be responsible for managing change within given budgets and timelines. You will need to have 1st class communication and negotiation skills in order to work with, manage and negotiate with your team members, stakeholders, vendors and the business.
