FIA manage more than $5.5 billion in client assets and has a long history of delivering value-added, risk-controlled performance by strategically investing in diversified portfolios of global bonds and currencies. This success has been produced with a team that has remained stable with the senior investment team at FIA having worked together since 1992.

FIAs investment process treats the whole global fixed income universe as their opportunity set, and by limiting risks and scope of investment by strategy uses a highly structured and largely top down process to decide the structure of portfolios within each strategy and once agreed the portfolio managers then work to populate that structure with the best value bonds within a set diversified and risk controlled framework.

  • Assist in taking the minutes of these meetings (as a portfolio and strategy learning tool)
  • Supporting the day-to-day portfolio managers / traders; this includes actively monitoring a broad range of global markets and their currencies and individual securities.
  • Work with the investment team to review and analyse the fundamental and technical outlook on investment environments across all allocations of FIAs global fixed income portfolios.
  • Working with the trade support team to learn and understand the portfolio trade settlement process.
  • Work with the investment team to help review other macroeconomic analysis with research from FIA & Wells analysts to determine relative value opportunities between sectors and individual issuers, in both secondary and new issuance within the boundaries set by Senior Portfolio Managers.
  • Later as a junior trader you will learn strategy implementation through the dealing of all types of securities used by the global fixed income team, and ensure best execution of transactions, while also making sure all clients are treated fairly.
  • Working within this small team will also require doing others duties from time to time that are not mentioned above.

All of the above will be conducted under supervision as this role is not initially a controlled function (CF30).
