Defaqto is the leading provider of investment research software, fund analysis and ratings to the UK financial services industry, and a fast growing and successful brand. As a result of significant growth, we are now seeking a talented individual to join us as we further expand our commercial offering and reach in the fund space.
As an Investment Consultant, you will analyse fund data and build strong relationships with fund managers in order to fully understand their approach. You will use this data and knowledge to create and maintain fund reviews and ratings that are used by over 7,000 advisers to inform the recommendations they make to their clients. You will also provide analysis for fund panels and other consultancy projects and will write adviser-facing publications and PR. You may also have the opportunity to speak at Defaqto and industry events.
The successful candidate will have excellent data analysis and interpretation skills and an excellent knowledge of all types of investment fund. You’ll need to be someone with high levels of personal presence and credibility, who can effectively establish and develop client relationships at a senior level. Ideally, the candidate should be a CFA charterholder with relevant experience working at a fund manager, wealth manager or consultancy practice. If not, you’ll have alternative professional qualifications and be able to demonstrate equivalent capability. In addition, you’ll also need good writing and presentation skills.
This is a unique role at the heart of the wealth and investment management markets and within an important and fast growing part of our business. We can offer a competitive salary (very much dependent upon the experience, knowledge and expertise you can bring to the role) and you’ll also benefit from all the other great things about working for Defaqto.
