ASSET MANAGEMENT JOBS FAQs
Asset management can be a very lucrative profession, with the average annual salary sitting somewhere in the £50,000 region. This will of course differ depending on your location, expertise, responsibilities and the type of firm you are working for.
For senior-level asset managers working for top firms, renumeration can easily reach six-figures.
Technically, there are no qualifications barring you from a career in asset management. However, most firms and organisations will expect you to have either a graduate or postgraduate degree in finance, or another relevant subject. Regardless of your education, it will be imperative to have a strong mathematical understanding. For example, you will almost certainly need to be well-versed in Excel, or a more specific asset management software.
For those looking to move the career ladder, certain soft skills – such as interpersonal and managerial talent – will also be an important asset. When networking, managing large portfolios and ultimately making tough decisions, you will need more than just a theoretical understanding of financial data.
Currently, some of the largest asset management firms include BlackRock, The Vanguard Group, UBS, JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs. However, you do not need to work for one of these names to enjoy a very fulfilling – and potentially lucrative – career in asset management.
