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.
Client Service Management contributes to Wellington Management's mission by delivering first class client service across the full breadth of business channels and markets covered in the Americas region. The Client Analyst ('CA') will work closely with Client Service Managers and be accountable for coordinating client related activities within our Client Service Group (CSG), as well as other Wellington line functions to ensure that we successfully deliver on the agreed upon operating and reporting requirements of each of our client relationships.
The Client Analyst, in conjunction with the relevant Client Service Manager, provides timely and accurate support to the Global Relationship Group (GRG) and their clients. The analyst will work closely with all members of the Client Service group, as well as many other functional areas of the firm, on a portfolio of assigned accounts. He/she will coordinate and conduct analysis of client portfolios, respond to inquiries on a wide variety of topics, and perform other tasks as appropriate. Client Analysts also participate in various projects and cross functional working groups related to the Client Service Management function. Key responsibilities include:
• Work closely with GRG in support of a number of assigned relationships from a client service stand point
• Research and respond to day to day client (or their agent) directed questions including ad-hoc service and operational inquiries
• Conduct analysis, initiate investigations, and respond to internal and external ad-hoc inquiries on a wide variety of topics including portfolio and product specific information, investment guidelines, compliance issues, legal contracts and fee inquiries
