The $21.8 billion United Nations Joint Staff Pension Fund, New York, is searching for an international equity portfolio manager.
The fund has 23% assets invested in non-U.S.-dollar equities, said Henry L. Ouma, director-investment management service. All but about 3% is internally managed.
The international equity manager will be part of a team of four covering Asia, Australia, Europe and emerging markets. The exact assignment hasn't been determined yet, but the new portfolio manager could cover Asia, Mr. Ouma said. The person would report to Mr. Ouma and would replace an international portfolio manager who left. Mr. Ouma declined to provide details.
Qualifications include five years of experience with a successful record in international portfolio management and knowledge of major international markets. Other preferences include knowledge of applied macroeconomics, banking and portfolio investment theory, as well as an advanced university degree or equivalent experience.
The U.N. Human Resources Management is handling recruiting for the position, formally known as investment officer. Anyone interested may apply to the United Nations.
