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 60 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.

We are transitioning to a hybrid work environment where both remote work and the office play a critical role. Our vision is a future where all employees are empowered to work flexibly to drive the best outcomes for our clients. Flexible work is a mindset and a core value. Our employees are encouraged to work remotely two days a week as a standard practice and will have flexibility in terms of working hours.

RESPONSIBILITIES

The Investment Analyst will have a wide range of responsibilities that may shift over time as the sustainable investment industry continues to evolve. Initially, the Analyst will help advance the firm's SI priorities within IPFS - working across asset classes and across sustainability disciplines. This will include but not be limited to - ESG integration and engagement, climate, impact investing, and regulatory work, across equities, fixed income, multi-strategy, alternatives, and private investments. The Analyst may at some point also have direct product coverage for one or more products on our Sustainable Investment Platform.

Product specific responsibilities could include working directly with portfolio managers, performing analyses related to portfolio positioning, attribution and risk, market trends, competitive positioning, and pricing.
