An opportunity for an Corporate Governance Professional with anywhere from around 3-8 years' experience to join a leading global investment manager in their expanding London office.

We would like to hear from individuals with around 3-8 years' experience in Corporate Governance, either having worked for an asset manager a consulting firm (including one of the Big 4) operating in this space. Our client is a highly regarded investment manager with a collaborative working environment that rewards performance and offers excellent opportunity for personal development. There is an element of flexibility around the seniority of the individual who will be hired as there will be a high emphasis on team/cultural fit and potential as much as experience.

Votes are cast in accordance with proxy voting guidelines. The post holder will review, analyse and formulate voting decisions for companies held in various funds and client portfolios.

Primary responsibilities will include:

  • Proxy Analysis, including analysis of company reports, proxy voting advisor services and internal/external research.
  • Research and Report Writing, whereby the postholder will be detailing proxy voting decisions within the business, with particular focus on the investment group.
  • Project management of new initiatives.
