Hedge Fund Accountant Jobs

Hedge Fund Accountant Overview


A Hedge Fund Accountant is responsible for monitoring the cash flow of a hedge fund, maintaining the account, making and keeping records of all transactions, and organizing money. In doing so, Hedge Fund Accountants create reports that give investors insight as to whether the fund is worth investing in or not. Most Hedge Fund Accountants are employed by banks and make a decent amount of money for their work.

Hedge Fund Accountant Educational Requirements


A Bachelor's Degree in Accounting, Finance or Business Management is required to become a Hedge Fund Accountant. The vast majority of Hedge Fund Accountants hold bachelor's degrees, but some have master's degrees in their field as well. Hedge Fund Accountants must be trustworthy, work hard and have a sense of personal integrity. The ability to grasp patterns in numbers is essential as are analytical skills. Candidates should have a thorough working knowledge of applicable computer programs to complete their daily tasks.

Hedge Fund Accountant Job Market


Hedge Fund Accountants make up a smaller portion of the overall number of accountants, of which there are currently 1,275,400. This number is expected to grow 13 percent by 2022 to a total of 1,442,200. Because there is no differentiation between classes of accountants, precise numbers are difficult to come by; however, the overall job outlook for Hedge Fund Accountants is good. As the economy continues to improve, the number of people making investments in hedge funds will increase, and so will the demand for more Hedge Fund Accountants.

Hedge Fund Accountant Salary


Hedge Fund Accountants can earn anywhere from $36,000 to $85,000 annually. The median falls somewhere around the $51,000 mark. Hedge Fund Accountants with more experience typically earn more than beginning managers, and the potential for bonuses exists based on the amount of investment received by individual accounts.
