Our two-year programme includes a comprehensive induction to the firm and the investment management industry, as well as full support to study for professional qualifications, such as the Investment Management Certificate (IMC) and the CFA Level 1 or CISI Level 6 Fund Management module. Throughout the two years you’ll receive on-going training and support, such as mock client meetings and practice pitches, as well as the opportunity to move between teams. From day one you’ll have a real role and responsibility, as you help us achieve our business goals while you continue to develop your new career.
