Fixed Income Graduate Programme 2018
London, United Kingdom
Fixed Income Graduate Programme
Investment management. Fund management. Portfolio management. They’re all generic terms for what we do but we usually refer to our front-office business as Asset Management, as it’s where our investment decisions are made. It’s here that you’ll find Portfolio Managers, Research Analysts, Traders and Quantitative Specialists working in Equities (stocks and shares) or Fixed Income (bonds, gilts and similar), property, cash and commodities (goods and services). This is also home to Multi Asset, which invests across multiple-asset classes to get the best returns from a client’s fund or portfolio.
Our Fixed Income Investment team manages money for investors across the globe. They do it by working collaboratively to look beyond traditional sources of information on risk to get the most intelligent, complete picture of an investment opportunity. The group comprises expertise in Portfolio Management, Trading, Quantitative and Credit Analysis, Investment Operations and Product.
What you’ll be doing:
On this two-year programme, you’ll spend at least three months in each of our Credit Research, Quantitative Research, Trading and Product departments, with an opportunity to spend a rotation in Asia. The experience you gain will give you a detailed understanding of all Fixed Income investments that Fidelity offers.
Our aim is to bring you up to speed as quickly as possible. Among other things, you’ll learn how to research and measure risk exposure, carry out financial modelling, prepare financial reports and interpret desk policies. All the while, you’ll be working out how best to develop the commercial aspects of our Fixed Income products.
Who we look for:
You’ll need excellent attention to detail, a talent for multi-tasking and a flair for numbers. You will need to have high grades at A level or equivalent and achieved (or be on track for) a 2:1 or above. We want to see your motivation to work for Fidelity together with your ability to think for yourself, personal drive, communication skills and, of course, lots of intellectual curiosity.
Training and development:
We invest a lot in our graduates. In Fixed Income, we’ll prepare you to sit both the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Level 1 exam and Investment Management Certificate (IMC). We support further training such as the CFA Levels 2 and 3, however, these are not mandatory
