Deadline: November 11, 2018

Type: Graduate

View more

About the Company:

Main business: Finance (incl. accountancy, insurance, pensions and fundraising)

Fidelity International invests money on behalf of institutions and private individuals.

Because we’re privately owned, we’re fully focused on the long-term interests of our clients – with both the commitment and the resources to provide the investment expertise, technology and service innovation needed to help them achieve their financial goals.

About the Role:

Multi Asset professionals use sophisticated qualitative and quantitative investment techniques to get the best returns from a client’s fund or portfolio, while still carefully managing risk. The group invests across equities, bonds, real estate, commodities and alternatives, so there’s a big remit here.

By the programme’s end, you will have developed many of the skills required to research markets and managers.

Requirements:

Strong numerical and analytical capabilities alone aren’t enough. To evaluate asset classes you need strong powers of self-motivation, keen attention to detail and good technical and analytical skills. It’s a matter of being able to think strategically, then use quantitative analysis to back up your ideas. So we look for intelligent, quick-thinking graduates with a keen interest in the industry.

We take on people from all degree disciplines. You will need to have high grades at A level or equivalent and achieved (or be on track for) a 2:1 or above.
