About the role
The IM team advises clients across the asset management sector, including mainstream investment managers, private equity houses, hedge fund managers, and infrastructure fund managers.

As a manager within the team, you will be responsible for the delivery of services to your portfolio of clients and assisting the director and partner group in the ongoing development of the business. We would expect you to operate across the different sub-sectors within asset management. Our broad client base incorporates many of the largest and most complex fund managers operating in the market today. We would look for you to work closely with these clients and as many of our clients have global reach and part of your time will involve interacting with our global network of investment management specialists.
The investment management industry is a dynamic industry facing unprecedented legal, regulatory and tax challenges. The next few years will give rise to a range of exciting and interesting opportunities for professionals working in this sector. Joining this team will provide you with a unique opportunity to deal with these challenges first-hand, providing you with excellent experience and scope for self-development.
