  • Collaborating with colleagues in the maintenance and enhancement of current risk management processes.

  • Supporting the business with value adding quantitative analysis particularly Investment Solutions.

  • Working closely with the product development team to help them develop and launch new products.

  • Developing an effective working relationship with the client relationship team to help support new client initiatives.

  • Being able to discuss risk management with investors and other relevant third parties.

 

Person Specification

  • A proactive self-starter with a good academic record in a quantitative field.

  • Experience in a relevant role; ideally within an investment risk management function covering Multi-Asset portfolios.

  • A robust understanding of financial markets and risk management techniques with the ability to challenge fund managers.

  • A sound understanding of financial instruments and portfolio construction.

  • An understanding of Multi-Asset and Managed fund products and markets trends in this space.

  • Excellent personal skills with the ability to communicate risk related issues effectively to all levels in the business.
