Researcher (Funds) - 12 month contract

Location: Haddenham
Salary: £20-28k, plus generous benefits

The data collected and managed by our Funds & DFMs research team is used by the majority of the UK adviser market to aid with client recommendations, to power our industry leading ratings and used by some of the largest names in the industry to provide instant and unbiased market and competitor intelligence.

We’re currently looking for a dedicated, diligent and enthusiastic individual with an interest in investment funds to join this team of specialist Researchers on a 12-month fixed term contract starting in September 2019, to cover maternity leave. There may be the possibility of a permanent role after this, dependent upon the future growth of Defaqto’s business in this area.

The role primarily involves:

  • Researching fund information using the internet, industry press, fund manager literature and telephone;
  • Building effective relationships with fund management firms to facilitate the acquisition of accurate and up-to-date information;
  • Understanding and interpreting fund and DFM information, identifying differences from currently held data and updating the Defaqto database with new information, in a timely manner and to a high level of accuracy.

To be successful in the role, you’ll need the ability to interpret information, problem solve and think analytically, together with fast and accurate data input and audit skills. You’ll also need to be a proactive team player with an inquisitive, methodical approach to your work and a keen eye for detail.

Ideally, you’ll already have a good working knowledge of investment funds, but if not then you’ll definitely need the interest, dedication and ability to learn quickly - and we'll provide you with the training to do this effectively.

In return, we can offer a unique and interesting role within the investment management industry. The salary range for this role is very much dependent upon your experience and expertise.
A starting salary of £20-25k is available for someone without specialist investment fund knowledge.
For someone with good fund knowledge and experience we can consider salaries up to £28k.
