Managing Director, Fundraising & Marketing

As part of its growth, Vida is expanding its sales team and will be hiring a Managing Director of Fundraising and Marketing. The firm is looking for an experienced and highly motivated capital raising professional to focus on the North American institutional market. Although the firm is headquartered in Austin, the Managing Director can be based in any U.S. financial center, although there is a slight preference for an East Coast location. This person’s coverage may also extend internationally to include Europe; however, the North American LP landscape will be the primary focus. The ideal candidate will have extensive experience at a relevant player within alternatives, i.e., a private credit, private equity, or hedge fund manager. The candidate must have an existing network of LP relationships and a track record of raising institutional capital in a fast-paced environment. He/she should be a proactive “self-starter,” who has a strong understanding of the alternative investment asset class, and a proven comfort with complex, niche and esoteric strategies.

The Managing Director will primarily be focused on raising institutional capital from new investors, but over time will also have a partial focus on helping to support existing LP relationships. This candidate will be raising capital across all of Vida’s strategies, which include both evergreen and closed-end structures. The candidate must be able to work independently, be highly organized, and have a solutions-oriented mindset. As a senior member of the organization, the Managing Director should be someone who is not only a strong cultural fit with the firm, but also a real culture carrier over time as Vida continues to expand its presence and reputation in North America, and globally.

Requirements
Qualifications for this role will include but will not be limited to the following:
· At least 15 years of alternative investments or relevant experience, of which at least ten years are in a relevant fundraising role.
· Demonstrated track record of developing, growing, and converting institutional capital from North American investors and investment consultants. Other markets are a plus, but not the focus.
· Proven ability to articulate complex investment strategies and deftly position product within allocator portfolios.
· Highly disciplined, organized, and process-driven approach to client coverage.
· Strong network of existing institutional investors and consultant relationships allocating to alternative asset classes, and ideally private capital.
· Strategic, consultative approach to client engagement.
· Very strong self-starter; goal-oriented personality with a strong work ethic, but also very collaborative, always willing to roll up one’s sleeves, and always approach challenges with a positive attitude and put team and firm first.
