    Is this a legitimate job vacancy?

    If so, I'd imagine it'll bruise a few egos.

    Yes, but I don't think a Fundraiser and an Analyst are the same thing.

    Why wouldn't it be and why would it bruise egos? ACA is a very well recognised path into PE and IB

    not an expert but the role says you do financial modelling in fundraising? wtf?

    it isn't just like "calculate the IRR based on what we expect the fund to return" is it?

    and just in general what skillset do these qualified accountants have that would help them raise money for funds?

    Similar skill set that allows them to become bankers, PE analysts/assocs, ER analysts etc

    I'd guess it's because most people on this forum have the misconception that the ACA is a vastly inferior career path. Swings and roundabouts I suppose.

    Yes, ignoring the fact that many who do CF at Big4s and other accounting firms also do the ACA and thus have a rather decent shot at PE. Particularly as they deal with smaller deals more relevant to (lower) MM PE firms who are more likely to need placement agencies for their fund raising anyway.
