The European Patent Office is known worldwide for delivering high-quality patents and efficient services that foster innovation, competitiveness and economic growth. Just as every patent is unique, so are the highly skilled investment professionals who manage the EPO's pension and social security reserve funds. We are now looking for an exceptional individual to join us as:
Head of Department Administration and Operations
The Reserve Funds for Pensions and Social Security (RFPSS) are a special class of asset of the European Patent Organisation that invest globally in a broad range of asset categories in accordance with an established investment strategy. They are managed internally by a team of investment specialists, both by means of direct investments and by using third-party collective investment vehicles, including investment funds and certificates. Given the size of the reserve funds (about EUR 10 billion), the results achieved by managing the RFPSS investments are of vital importance for the financial health of the Organisation.
The Principal Directorate Administration of the Reserve Funds comprises four departments: Portfolio Management, Investment Analytics and Risk and Process Management, Accounting and Internal Control and Administration and Operations. Together they are responsible for executing the front-to-back investment process for the reserve funds.
