European Rates Portfolio Manager

WELLINGTON MANAGEMENT

Wellington Management offers comprehensive investment management capabilities that span nearly all segments of the global capital markets. Our investment solutions, tailored to the unique return and risk objectives of institutional clients in more than 50 countries, draw on a robust body of proprietary research and a collaborative culture that encourages independent thought and healthy debate. As a private partnership, we believe our ownership structure fosters a long-term view that aligns our perspectives with those of our clients.

POSITION

Company

Tracing our roots to 1928, Wellington Management Company, LLP is one of the world's largest independent investment management firms. With US$1 trillion in assets under management as of 31 December 2017, we serve as a trusted adviser to institutional clients and mutual fund sponsors in over 50 countries. Our innovative investment solutions are built on the strength of proprietary, independent research and span nearly all segments of the global capital markets, including equity, fixed income, multi-asset, and alternative strategies. As a private partnership whose sole business is investment management, our long-term views and interests are aligned with those of our clients. We are committed to attracting a talented and diverse workforce, and to fostering an open, collaborative culture of inclusivity because we believe multiple perspectives lead to more informed investment and business decisions. As an Equal Opportunity Employer, we welcome people with diverse life experiences, fresh ideas, and specialized subject-matter expertise.

Role

Wellington currently manages over $480 billion in fixed income assets on behalf of our clients worldwide. Within our fixed income group, the Global Bond book of business is large, diverse and growing, and today totals more than $65bn. To ensure that we continue to exceed our clients' investment expectations, we are seeking to recruit a European Rates Portfolio Manager to join our Global Bond portfolio management team, to be based in London. This individual will be responsible for managing a dedicated alpha sleeve consistent with their stated philosophy and process, and within their area of specialization. While European rates is likely to be the principal focus area, experience investing in global markets would be beneficial, in order to partner broadly with in-house strategists and team members on country, duration and/or currency investments. His/her alpha sleeve will be available across the platform for incorporation in all appropriate client mandates, ranging from hedge funds to constrained portfolios. In addition, he/she will be expected to contribute actively to the broader investment dialogue of the team and the firm.   

Responsibilities will include:

* Manage a European rates alpha sleeve as a member of the Global Bond team;

* Contribute to the global macro investment dialogue and process;

* Ensure a keen focus on generating performance for clients;

* Work with the Sales & Relationship Management group to help grow assets and build client relationships.

Qualifications

The ideal candidate is likely to:

* Have a minimum of five years of absolute return investing experience. He/she will possess a background in European rates investing, with a demonstrated ability to scale risk and an attributable investment track record;

*  Demonstrate excellent communication and interpersonal skills, and a collaborative and inclusive work ethic;

* Be able to work both independently and as part of a global team;

* Have excellent academic credentials, ideally including a post-graduate or professional qualification.

Please note that we are only able to respond to successful applicants.
