Private Funds Attorney
We are searching for an attorney specializing in private fund formation to support the BlackRock illiquid alternatives business in the Asia-Pacific Region. Ideally our candidate is a private funds attorney who will be involved in providing legal advice and consultation, focusing on a variety of legal issues relating to alternative investment funds, including fund structuring, marketing, and corporate governance. Additionally, the attorney will provide support for the BlackRock Real Estate business, including providing legal oversight with respect to transactions, management, and financing.
This position will be located in Hong Kong or Singapore.
To ensure success in the role, you will possess the following:
- Qualified in law with outstanding academic credentials from a nationally- or internationally recognized university, and five or more years' post-qualification experience as a lawyer in the asset management or fund formation group within a major law firm, the legal department of an investment management firm or the alternative investment division at an investment bank. Fund formation experience and familiarity with relevant local and global laws and regulations (such as Hong Kong SFC and Singapore MAS regulations, the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD), the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, and the other U.S. and non-U.S. laws impacting privately offered funds) would be preferred. Real estate experience is a plus but is not required.
- Demonstrated initiative and accountability, excellent analytical, written, and verbal communications skills, comfort with working across different business functions while remaining responsive, and the desire to work creatively in a fast-paced environment.
- Strong organizational skills and ability to balance multiple time-sensitive matters in a fluid environment. You must have the ability to coordinate complex projects involving different business and support groups and to assist the business in implementing solutions across the broad range of BlackRock products and services.
- You should have outstanding relationship-building skills and a consistent track record of working well as a member of a team. You should approach problems in a business-minded and practical manner and be able to communicate sophisticated concepts in an understandable way, to junior and senior colleagues across BlackRock's business teams. Our team is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, so you will be encouraged to help us continue to build a culture of inclusivity, belonging and trust.
To help you stay energized, engaged and inspired, we offer a wide range of benefits including a strong retirement plan, tuition reimbursement, comprehensive healthcare, support for working parents and Flexible Time Off (FTO) so you can relax, recharge and be there for the people you care about.
