Looking for an investment manager that can uniquely contribute to Wire Group and the impact investing sector
Wire Group, a boutique firm that supports holistic wealth management based in the Netherlands, is looking for a highly driven, engaged, entrepreneurial, talented and fluently Dutch speaking person to play a key role in the Wire Investments team.
As a company our impact vision is broad and holistic. We strongly believe that making positive changes in the world starts with a higher level of consciousness on the part of ourselves, our partners and our clients – wealthy individuals, families and foundations. Through Wire Academy and Wire Ignition we focus on education, awareness raising, and strategy building. Through Wire Investments, which is deeply rooted in our vision and values, we support concrete investments and seek to deploy more conscious capital towards impact investing, growing the ‘assets under impact’ (AuI) we facilitate from EUR 12m today to EUR 100m in three years’ time.
We form a close and diverse team in which autonomy, entrepreneurship, fun and trust are amongst our core values. If you feel that you fit the profile we describe below, you will play a key role in our small and solidly evolving ‘impact house’, which has been founded to contribute to the creation of a value(s)-driven and inclusive society in which all people and ecosystems can thrive.
The kind of person we are looking for to enrich our team:
Highly driven first and foremost
We are a young and ambitious company in a rapidly growing sector. For someone with a lot of drive, vision, flexibility, and stamina, this creates opportunities to shape our company as well as the impact investing sector. The Wire Group tag line is ‘Venturing for impact’.
We are looking for a high degree of engagement. Our ideal candidate has a strong set of moral values and is passionate about creating a world in which the creation of social and ecological value is the fundament for the creation of financial value. As we are a close team, engagement within the team at a personal level is also important.
We believe in the entrepreneurial spirit and we look for candidates that are open to working with us in an independent capacity (ZZP) and have the entrepreneurial drive to help Wire Group grow, in terms of both capabilities and financial strength.
To help transform our society and economic system to the one we envision, the impact investing sector needs and deserves the most talented people in order to make this emergent form of value-driven investing a success and prove to the world that another way is possible. Whether you are choosing to switch from a successful career in investment banking or strategy consulting, or you believe you have another combination of experience and talents that you think can uniquely contribute to the development of our work, we’re looking forward to getting to know you better. Wire Group believes strongly in ‘wiring’ into pools of talent in order to think big and together transform the financial sector, our economy and society.
And the job description?
We have deliberately chosen not to include a job description. While deal sourcing, due diligence and deal structuring will be key elements of the job, we are hoping that you will help us shape the job into the right job for you and for our company.
Want to apply?
Please send us a letter in Dutch of maximum one side of A4 (approximately 600 words) in which you explain why you are the driven, engaged, entrepreneurial and talented candidate we’re looking for. We like to be as open-minded as possible, so please don’t send us your CV at this stage.
