I am writing to inquire if you might be interested in part-time employment with our company.

3 Sigma Capital Planning Ltd. (3 Sigma Capital) based in Moscow, Russia is looking for energetic 
and committed individuals to fill the part-time receivables clerk position in the United States. As 
a receivables clerk, you will be in charge of processing and facilitating investment funds 
transfers initiated by our US clients under the supervision of the regional receivables manager. A 
perfect candidate should be a strong communicator who is also comfortable with numbers and ideally 
has some previous book-keeping experience. College education or any administrative professional 
background is a plus.

No relocation is required from a successful candidate. This opening is a great opportunity for 
those looking for a reasonable trade-off between working hours and compensation, such as senior 
citizens or self-employed individuals.

3 Sigma Capital is an investment advisor and broker/dealer registered with the Russian Federal 
Financial Markets Service. Our company offers hedge fund and private equity research, due diligence 
and investment trust management services to qualified investors and high net worth individuals 
looking for high returns and quantifiable risks in the emerging markets of Russia, Ukraine and 
Kazakhstan. For more information on our company, please visit us online at

The receivables clerk position is commission-based, and it will typically take up to 6 hours per 
week to fulfill your duties. You should be able to perform your duties during regular business 
hours. Your core responsibility will be to receive the investment funds from our US clients into 
your designated bank account, reconcile the payments with your supervisor if required and transfer 
specified funds into our managed investment accounts. You will be in charge of contacting your bank 
in order to obtain transfer status information, confirmations and account activity reports, as well 
as handling daily communications with your bank. You will be receiving a 2% commission from the 
gross amount of each transfer that is remitted into your designated account (for instance, if 
$10,000 is credited into your account, you will be retaining a commission of $200). Your commission 
is available immediately, so there is no need to wait for the payroll check in the end of the month.

Attached Message
You will be receiving the investment funds from our US clients via secure electronic Wire transfer 
used by major US banks for funds and securities settlement. This means that no funds will be 
deposited into your account unless the transaction is reviewed and confirmed both by the remitting 
and recipient banks. Thus, there is no operational risk on your end. You will never be required to 
cash a check, make a remittance before the funds are cleared into your account or engage in any 
other financially risky activity.

In order to qualify for the position, you must be a permanent US resident aged 21 and above. It is 
recommended that you set up a separate bank account for the receivables service (a list of 
preferred banks is available); however, you may also use an existing account. Since most 
communication with your supervisor will be via email/fax/phone, you should have access to these 
facilities and be available for communication in regular business hours.
