Job Description

Due to continued growth in our assets under management, we are looking for an Associate to join us in our Hong Kong office.

Portfolio Management (60%): The Investment Associate is expected to support Investment Principals with the management, maintenance, and monitoring of client investment portfolios. This entails reviewing clients’ balance sheets, preparing investment and portfolio analysis, brainstorming recommendations relating to client portfolio asset allocation, portfolio performance and currency exposure reviews and preparing presentation materials for client meetings. The role requires a high degree of numeracy, strong Excel and PowerPoint skills, and an ability to produce zero-defect work to tight deadlines, often while working on several tasks concurrently. With support and training, the Investment Associate is expected to grow into a position to attend client meetings and develop relationships with clients.

Investment Analysis (30%): The Investment Associate will be assisting senior investment research members with the identification of promising investment theses and conducting due diligence on asset managers. The Investment Associate will drive the quantitative analysis that forms the cornerstone of all research projects. The role requires a high degree of numeracy, strong Excel modelling skills and the willingness and ability to understand (often complicated) investment strategies. Over time, the Investment Associate will be expected to develop one or more specialist areas of expertise, manage relationships with managers in those areas and be able to identify and sponsor new investments in those areas through the investment process.

Other (10%): In addition to the above, the Investment Associate will be expected to contribute to other areas of the business which might include: participating in business development, research on specific investment topics, or assisting with office operations.
