The position

SimCorp develops, sells and delivers award-winning software solutions to the financial sector that mitigate risk, enable growth and cut costs. We have two product lines: SimCorp Dimension and SimCorp Coric. SimCorp Dimension offers a portfolio of integrated front-to-back office solutions for business process automation in investment management.

SimCorp Coric Client Communications is a best-in-class client communications and client reporting solution used by private wealth and asset management firms to increase operational efficiency, enhance client service and enrich client experience.

SimCorp Coric is looking for an experienced and successful sales professional to manage and close sales opportunities with Institutional Asset Managers and Wealth Managers across the UK, Europe and possibly further afield.

We have built our business by successfully selling our Client Reporting solutions to Wealth and Investment managers globally. About 75% of our business comes from standalone sales. Our market segment will evolve significantly over the next 5 years (away from traditional paper based reporting).

Our goal now is to offer the excitement and buzz of a Fintech with market leading technology whilst leveraging the years of experience and benefits of being a trusted and recognized financial application provider.

The successful candidate will play a pivotal role in helping us achieve this success. If you are an experienced Sales Executive / Manager who is passionate, driven and focused and who will thrive in a dynamic and fast-paced environment, please get in touch.
