jobs description

Bovill is a global financial services regulatory consultancy with offices in London, Singapore, Hong Kong, and the Americas. We work with clients internationally on every element of regulation. We help firms build projects to respond to significant regulatory change or give them peace of mind they’re doing the right thing.

Bovill is now part of Ocorian, the global provider of financial and corporate administration services and regulatory solutions. We have combined with Newgate, Ocorian’s existing regulatory and compliance business, to offer comprehensive regulatory support to financial services organisations. We are now looking to expand, enhance and extend our services to our valued clients as part of the wider Ocorian group.

Our thriving Hong Kong Practice is looking for a consultant to join the team to deliver high quality, specialist advice to our Asset Management / Funds clients in Hong Kong, Mainland China and overseas. The successful candidate will also participate in... marketing and business development, assist with technical research and the production of technical materials, and participate more generally in the development and growth of the company.

The Hong Kong Practice gives specialist advice on regulatory requirements to Bovill’s clients. They support clients through the entire regulatory cycle – obtaining the appropriate licence, putting in place fit-for-purpose, commercially-minded compliance frameworks, meeting the expectations of relevant regulators on an ongoing basis, and implementing regulatory change projects.

The successful candidate will provide support primarily to hedge fund managers, but also be able to provide coverage and support for our asset management clients in other asset classes, such as private equity. There will also be opportunity to work with other Bovill clients on a project basis, including in other sectors and in specialist fields such as AML.

The areas in which the Consultant will be expected to assist clients includes, but is not limited to:
• Providing advice and support to clients on a wide range of regulatory compliance matters.
• Drafting policies, procedures and templates.
• Writing training material and delivering training sessions.
• Liaising with regulators on behalf of / regarding the client.
• Assisting with regulatory matters including licencing applications.
• Compiling and submitting regulatory returns and filings or preparing comprehensive reports.
• Acting as the main point of contact and relationship manager for a portfolio of clients.
• Developing a thorough understanding of clients’ businesses and requirements so you can provide relevant and accurate advice.
• Building and maintaining professional working relationships with clients, trade bodies and the regulator(s).
• Actively seeking to increase Bovill’s pipeline by targeting new clients, as well as managing existing client relationships to maximise opportunities for up-selling and cross-selling.
• Preparing well-presented, accurately priced proposals and present these to prospective clients.
• Representing the firm at industry events, promoting the Bovill brand.
• Participating in internal events and training sessions such as client briefings and roundtable events.

Successful applicants will have:
• A degree level education.
• Fluency in Cantonese and English is essential. Mandarin would also be desirable.
• Demonstrable compliance-related experience gained at a financial institution, legal practice, consultancy and/or the regulator.
• Experience managing client relationships.
• Deep understanding of SFC and HKMA rules and regulations.
• Strong technical knowledge of the fund management and broking sector, in particular hedge fund knowledge.
• Experience translating regulatory rules and guidance into meaningful, fit-for-purpose, pragmatic and commercial solutions for clients.
• Proven track record of exceeding financial goals and sales targets; consulting experience would be advantageous.
• Exceptional written and oral communication skills.
• High attention-to-detail is expected.
• A broad understanding and an appetite to keep learning.

Bovill Hong Kong is a key part of our global strategy. However, the office is small and therefore needs to leverage the resources of Bovill Singapore and the other global offices (London and Americas). An ability to foster good working relationships with global colleagues is therefore critical.

In return we offer:
• The opportunity to work in an entrepreneurial, fast-paced, and stimulating environment.
• Support for career development through mentoring, coaching, and relevant training.
• The opportunity to work with friendly and collaborative colleagues.
• Pension, private healthcare, and a generous benefits package.

Bovill actively supports flexible working and supports a hybrid working practice.
