Investor Analyst (London)

Wouldn’t you like to have a career instead of just a job?

What is asset management?

Asset management is a $100 Trillion industry that focuses on investing and savings for investors. The industry is limitless in terms of ideas and spans the globe in terms of opportunities.

From earning interest on a savings account to investing in real estate, hedge funds, private equity and infrastructure, asset managers deploy capital in order to reward good businesses and ideas. The end goal is to earn a return for the investor and protect their investment.

The industry is focused on long-term relationships and intellectual curiosity.

Sound interesting? How do you get into this industry?

Murano, of course!

Murano sits in the middle of the asset management industry and effectively matches investors with fund managers. We speak to investors all over the world to get their views on the market in order to see if one of our fund clients will fit with what they are looking for. We call this position an “Investor Analyst.”

In order to do this job, you need to be:

Intellectually curious

A good writer

A good listener

Able to express yourself well

Work well within a team environment

 

What you don’t need:

A PhD in physics

8 A stars at A-level

An Olympic gold medal

Because this position requires speaking with a lot of people, you will be on the phone throughout the day. The tough part about this job is trying to get hold of people that are very busy and then speaking to them in a professional manner. You don’t need to be an expert, but you need to be a good journalist and desire to continuously be learning.

We can think of no better way to get into the industry. Here is why: you will get a lot of exposure to the investor market and work with some of the most prestigious funds on the planet. It is not uncommon to have the “Who’s Who” of the industry walk through our door, and we have about one hundred fund presentations a year from a very wide variety of managers.

We also offer training for professional qualifications, like the CAIA or the IMC if you are interested.

What about career progression?

We have two advantages at Murano: 1. We are growing, and there is room to grow with us. 2. The training you receive at Murano has no parallel in the industry and our alumni have built upon their experience by joining some of the most prestigious asset managers in the business. They have become fund managers, business developers, investors and operations managers.

This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking to get into the competitive world of Asset Management. Murano is looking to hire an individual who has an appetite to learn about the Alternatives industry. Murano offers a comprehensive program whereby candidates will gain an overview of the alternative investment industry through on the job training and the opportunity to take the CAIA (Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst) exams. At the end of the program, successful employees will be able to progress within the company to senior positions, or management can aid the analyst toward the world of Hedge Funds utilizing Murano’s select client portfolio.

What about compensation, etc.?

On average, we pay pretty well. However, at the start there is a lot of investment. Training a new analyst takes a few months and this is expensive. So, you start at £20k with a clear view of salary progression over your career. Many of our analysts are then up to £30k after only a year. We believe in paying for talent. As you grow, so does your paycheck.

We also have a lot of little perks, like Friday breakfast, fruit, the occasional free lunch, and a few good parties.
