Whether you're interested in retraining or have previous investment management experience, we'd like to hear from you.

Investment Manager - Discretionary Fund Management Team, Guildford


This is an opportunity to join a dynamic team currently managing discretionary funds worth £850M. Investec's internal investment process requires our discretionary fund managers to be highly technical. You'll be part of a team responsible for both originating and executing investment ideas. As well as quantitative expertise and focus, each discretionary fund manager (DFM) provides a vital link between research and their IM colleagues, communicating the firm's evolving strategy and its tactics in fast-moving markets. Our DFM teams are our in-house investment experts. A grounding in fund management is a unique practical introduction to the fundamentals of private client investment management. Our team is welcoming, inclusive and operates with a collegiate approach where everyone's voice is heard.

What will the role involve?

Its functions are to apply Investec's investment strategy to our clients' portfolios ; to evaluate individual investments; to construct and maintain portfolios and to execute individual and bulk trades.  With knowledge and experience will come more autonomy and responsibility including some client contact.

What are we looking for in the successful candidate?

This is a technical role, suitable for a candidate with analytical experience, an exacting  mindset and Excel expertise. As well as a process-driven approach you will need good communication and interpersonal skills to engage with your colleagues and, in time, with clients. This opportunity within our expanding DFM team would be ideal for a qualified investment manager or for a qualified accountant or actuary with a passion for investments and global stock markets.
