As part of the European Research & Strategy Team, this UK-focused role supports the formulation of investment strategies, client reporting and internal/external enquiry response. Bespoke projects and thought-leadership are also an important part of the role. The team is part of a wider Global team, and contributes to projects with our colleagues in North America and Asia Pacific.
