The Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation (APFC) is looking to hire a director of investments for its absolute return and risk management division.

The director will be posted at the APFC offices in Alaska's capital city of Juneau, population approximately 32,000.

This is a new position to the fund and the director will work under the general direction of the chief investment officer to manage the roughly $40 billion Alaska Permanent Fund, a sovereign-style fund created in 1976 to preserve a portion of Alaska's mineral wealth.

This position manages the relationships and monitors performance among absolute return strategy managers and manages co-investment and direct investment opportunities.

The incumbent will manage the rebalancing program via derivatives, ETF's, index funds and active managers for the entire portfolio.

Additionally, the selected candidate will provide knowledge, perspective, input, and assistance with overall APFC investment decisions.

The 14-member APFC investments department is supported by 20-plus additional operations staff as well as external managers, all working toward long-term performance goals set by a 6-member board of trustees.

Fund assets are allocated among internally and externally-managed portfolios.
