  • Client investment execution - manage from start to finish, i.e. create trade plans, send execution instructions, monitor cash, security and FX movements, send trade confirmations.
  • Third party relationships - liaise with client custodians, trustees, advisors and administrators.
  • Product knowledge - understand the types of products our clients invest, in across all asset classes.
  • Client balance sheets - update and review on a timely basis e.g. monitor currency and asset class exposures versus Investment Policy targets.
  • Client meeting preparation - support Investment Principals where necessary.
  • Respond to client calls - act as support to the Investment Principals in managing client relationships.
  • Quarterly reporting and semi-annual billing
  • Client on-boarding – work with account opening team in UK to review KYC documentation for new clients to ensure they meet the regulatory requirements.

Qualifications and Experience

  • Have an excellent academic record, having graduated from a reputable university with First Class/2nd Upper Honours, as well as strong Maths / Economics knowledge is preferred
  • At least one year’s experience of working within Financial Services, ideally in an investment bank or asset-management firm. Candidates with Client Servicing internships with reputable fund manager will be considered.
  • Strong interest in the investment and capital markets
