Hedge Fonds: aktuell 387 Jobs.Die neuste Jobanzeige wurde geschaltet am 25 Apr 15
Hier finden Sie Jobs bei Hedgefonds, die im Englischen auch als Hedge Funds bezeichnet werden. Hedgefonds-Manager waren traditionell die Outsider der Finanzdienstleistungswelt. Die meisten sind hoch erfolgreiche ehemalige Trader oder Fondsmanager, die sich entschlossen haben, sich mit einem Hedgefonds selbstständig zu machen – zumal seit der Finanzkrise der Eigenhandel der Banken eingeschränkt wurde.
Wie Hedgefonds funktionieren
Der Name „Hedgefonds“ leitet sich von dem Gedanken ab, dass Investoren ihre Geschäfte absichern können. Diese Absicherungsgeschäfte werden auch als Hedging bezeichnet – daher der Name. Moderne Hedgefonds verfolgen indes alternative Anlagestrategien, mit denen sich auch bei fallenden oder seitwärts tendierenden Märkten Geld verdienen lässt. Dazu zählt z.B. das sogenannte „Short-Selling“. Dabei leiht sich ein Anleger zunächst z.B. Aktien aus, die er für überbewertet hält und verkauft sie. Nachdem der Preis gefallen ist, kauft er die gleichen Aktien zurück, erstattet sie dem Eigentümer und streicht den Gewinn ein.
Hedgefonds verfolgen ganz unterschiedliche Investment-Strategien und fallen daher auch in verschiedene Kategorien. Dazu zählen: Global Macro Funds (Fonds, die sich auf globale Trends konzentrieren, statt auf Preisbewegungen von Einzelwerten); ereignisbasierte Fonds (Fonds, die versuchen, von einmaligen Ereignissen wie Übernahmen zu profitieren) oder Arbitrage-Fonds, die von Preisunterschieden an unterschiedlichen Handelsplätzen profitieren. Ein Arbitragefonds würde dort kaufen, wo es günstiger ist, und gleichzeitig dort verkaufen, wo es teurer ist. Durch den Siegeszug des Hochfrequenzhandels wird es jedoch immer schwieriger, auf so einfache Weise sein Geld zu verdienen.
Weil Hedgefonds als risikoträchtig gelten, können Investoren ihr Geld auch in „Dach-Hedge-Fonds“ investieren. Diese stecken ihr Geld in mehrere verschiedene Hedgefonds mit der Absicht, das Risiko zu diversifizieren und dadurch zu mindern.
Welche Jobs Hedgefonds bieten
Hedgefonds bieten Jobs in der Analyse von Unternehmen, Märkten oder Finanzprodukten, in die der Fonds investiert; Sales und Marketing, Investor Relations sowie Trading. Hedgefonds-Trader sind oft reine Execution Trader, die meist auf Empfehlungen eines Analysten handeln.
Hedgefonds stellen auch eine Reihe von Mitarbeitern in den Bereichen Risk und HR bzw. Compliance ein, um sicherzustellen, dass das Unternehmen erfolgreich läuft.
