Sales and Marketing Roles in London
Sales and Marketing professionals in the financial sector in London can earn basic salaries of £65,000 although bonuses and variable compensation are very important in this sector, so a lot of variance can be expected, and much higher earnings are possible. Employers looking for sales and marketing professionals might be fund managers aiming to raise assets, so they require strong personalities and preferably good existing relationships with investors and asset allocators. Banks also need salespeople, both to sell particular trade ideas to clients in either the equities or the fixed income sectors, and to sell their electronic trading systems as a whole. Technical skills are less emphasised in sales and marketing roles, but employees must be able to understand client needs and the advantages and risk profile of the products they are selling.
Success in sales and marketing is all about developing a proven track record of being able to raise money, and to maintain relationships with the key clients. Increasingly, employers are also launching digital marketing strategies and so require marketers with technical skills in digital marketing as well as direct sales representatives. At present, the most in demand roles are in hedge fund and boutique asset management sales, however.
More about working in London
London has two distinct kinds of financial working environment. The City of London and Canary Wharf are relatively conventional business districts, home to banks and corporate head offices with a largely commuter workforce. In Mayfair, however, the hedge fund and wealth management industry is located in the heart of the retail and entertainment district, with many major arts and cultural venues alongside high-powered financial companies.
