Investment management. Fund management. Portfolio management. We usually refer to our front-office business as Asset Management, as it's where our investment decisions are made. It's here that you'll find Portfolio Managers, Research Analysts, Traders and Quantitative Specialists working in our Equities (stocks and shares), Fixed Income (bonds, gilts and similar) and Real Estate teams.

What you'll be doing:

As an Equity Research Associate, you'll research and analyse the products, services, strategies, competitive advantages and financial data of a variety of publicly traded companies. You will assess the current and future trading environments and investigate the competency of their management teams. This robust analysis will give you the information you need to make a buy or sell recommendation on each company to our team of Portfolio Managers, therefore giving you a pivotal part to play in the investment decision-making processes from a very early stage. During the course of your early career, you will rotate through several sectors and build the base of expertise you need to become either a Career Analyst or a Portfolio Manager.

Who we look for:

Alongside a thirst for knowledge, you'll need impressive analytical skills and a commercial acumen to take advantage of the training and mentoring we'll give you. You'll also need the tenacity and confidence to communicate your position on a stock and justify your thinking (often with imperfect information). You don't need to study a specific subject to have a career in asset management - the people who work here bring a diverse mix of qualifications and experience. You will need to have a minimum of 3C's at A level or equivalent and achieved (or be on track for) a 2:1 or above at undergraduate.

Your training and development:

We invest a lot in our graduates. As well as providing intensive technical training upon joining to help build your analysis and modelling skills, you will receive ongoing training via our "Analyst School" programme, and we'll quickly prepare you to sit both the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Level 1 exam and Investment Management Certificate (IMC). We support further training such as the CFA Levels 2 and 3, however, these are not mandatory.
