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. This is also home to Multi Asset, which invests across multiple-asset classes to get the best returns from a client’s fund or portfolio.
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.
Please note this application is for our Equity Research Graduate Programme based in the UK.
Who we look for:
Alongside a thirst for knowledge, you’ll need impressive analytical skills and a commercial acumen to take advantage of the array of training we’ll give you, including training in financial modelling and company valuation. 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 have studied a specific subject to build a career with us – we’re looking for highly driven people with intellectual curiosity, ambition and an absolute commitment to serving the best interests of our clients. You will need to have high grades at A level and achieved (or be on track for) a 2:1.
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.
