      • 1-4+ years of related experience (within the compliance function of a SEC-registered investment adviser or with a law firm specializing in the investment advisory industry).
      • Knowledge of sophisticated investment offerings across multiple jurisdictions is a plus, ideally with a focus on private credit and/or exposure to private equity style funds, BDCs, real estate and other emerging products.
