About the Role

Wellington currently manages approximately $35 billion in alternative assets worldwide across long/short equity, absolute return credit, global multi-strategy, private equity funds and custom solutions. Our investment ecosystem and scale allow alternative investors to partner with world class investment research experts across fundamental equity, credit, fiscal/monetary economics, derivatives, rates, risk, data science, climate, sustainability, and many others. Our investment dialogue promotes collaborative discussions on securities across a range of diverse perspectives; the freedom to disagree and to make independent decisions on behalf of our clients is paramount to our culture.

Within our Alternatives platform, we are seeking a Hedge Fund Analyst ("Analyst") to join our Wellington Global Technology Long/Short fund. This is our flagship long/short technology hedge fund, which invests across all market capitalizations, sectors, and geographies within the global technology landscape. The Analyst will primarily cover Global Software working closely with the Portfolio Manager and team to generate, research, and implement investment ideas for the unconstrained portfolio. In addition, the Analyst will conduct fundamental research that leads to differentiated insights derived from asking innovative questions, anticipating trends, and identifying risks and potential disruptions in a rapidly changing industry.

• Superior collaboration and influencing skills - The successful candidate will be energized by being an individual contributor within a highly collaborative team and embracing the benefits of overlapping lines of company coverage and idea generation. The Analyst will build strong trusting relationships internally with colleagues and externally with company management teams.
