Our client, a real estate fund that was launched by 4 large groups of reputable investors with an entrepreneurial profile, is looking for the next Chief Financial Officer. A leader in investment, fund management, real estate development and asset management, this group of successful people has a vision of growth through its business partners and the support of institutional investors. The fund aims to be among the top 5 in Quebec in the medium term in the very promising sector of retirement homes.
You will work directly with a president experienced in construction and investment funds who advocates collegiality, clear and direct exchanges without pretension. We are looking for a CFO who can act as a liaison between the development and management teams to analyze the overall financial performance of the fund, but also to analyze current and future projects and propose solutions to achieve and maintain planned performance targets.
As a hands on CFO with an entrepreneurial approach, you will act as a good father in the wise management of the company to protect the interests of investors. Your role will be more financial than accounting oriented; among other things, you will have to analyze and produce profitability reports with the help of a complex Excel spreadsheet on current projects but also you will be able to analyze the feasibility of potential projects. You will be the financial head for all aspects ranging from cash management, negotiating credit agreements, meeting financial commitments... A seasoned communicator, the CFO will be responsible for the executive communication of financial information and project status to the President, private and institutional investors, investment and/or advisory committees, and the team.
The successful candidate will be the strategic financial advisor to the President, overseeing the full financial cycle and responsible for corporate governance including sound risk management. He will act as a financial business partner in financing activities and as a consultant in acquisition, development and investment matters.
The CFO will complete due diligence questionnaires upon request of institutional investors and collaborate with them. Annual budgets, asset valuation policy, NAV, financial statements and reports to the AMF are also part of the CFO's duties. At the same time, there is a certain duality as the CFO must also be able to rise above the fray and make presentations to groups of up to 40 people with a diverse audience ranging from entrepreneur-investors to institutional investors who require much more information and detail.
This opportunity is ideal for a financial executive who is looking to contribute positively to the growth vision and profitability of a rapidly growing RPA real estate fund.
Bilingual financial executive with a hands on and entrepreneurial approach who has worked in a real estate development and management company in a similar financial role and responsibilities for over 6 years, ideally in the residential sector such as large condo projects, seniors' residences... Results oriented candidate with expertise in Excel modeling of performance, projections and ROI on potential projects.
We are looking for a rigorous candidate with strong analytical and synthesis skills who has had a direct impact on the growth and profitability of past and/or current employers.
The CFO has excellent communication and outreach skills, and possesses a high degree of credibility and influence with a variety of audiences such as entrepreneurs-investors, institutional investors, investment and/or advisory committees, financiers and business partners.
