Who we’re looking for

We design and run custom fixed income solutions for clients, ranging from government bond baskets through to complex Buy & Maintain credit funds.

We’re looking for an Assistant Fund Manager who wants to learn all the ins and outs of managing portfolios that deliver what we promise to our clients, and ultimately take responsibility for looking after other people’s assets. 

We want someone who can work alongside our fund managers. You’ll have the desire and curiosity to learn their job as well as your own. And you’ll do it by getting to grips with day-to-day cash management, monitoring, and checks and balances, and progress to portfolio construction, understanding a wide range of fixed income assets and credit selection.  


You’ll be busy, hands-on and can-do. Learning your way around our processes and systems. Making sure they help give our clients what they want. And looking for improvements to make them even more efficient.
