You will also be expected to draft corporate resolutions and provide support for the company secretarial team in some instances. Key responsibilities also include a focus on regulatory and compliance matters in relation to GDPR as well as assisting on the structuring and setting up funds, investment management, advisory and distribution related agreements.
