Success comes from thinking differently, recruiting and retaining the best people.

Our Background

GAM is one of the world’s leading independent asset managers. We also have a Fund Management Service business, which provides management company and other support services to third-party institutions.

On top of our own investment managers, we work with carefully chosen external specialists in select areas. This ‘open-architecture’ approach is one we pioneered in the 1980s and it’s still an important part of our investment offering to clients.

Why GAM?

Our employees are our single most valuable asset, and we work to make an environment that will attract the best people, and give them credible reasons to stay and grow their careers with us.

The passion and talent of our people is critical to our success. Together we share a common set of values rooted in integrity, collaboration and professional excellence.

Ambitious? Bright? Right.

People come to work with us because they value our client-focused, collaborative culture.

We bring together the finest talent to deliver truly distinctive investments and services, helping our clients around the world to achieve their financial objectives. That calls for teamwork, integrity, rigour and an entrepreneurial flair across the GAM organisation.

So if you share our ambitions for our clients, we’ll help you take your career ambitions forward.

Our Values

We act with integrity

We always do the right thing by our clients and by each other.

Earning and keeping trust is a priority. We are honest, transparent and always accountable.

We promote open communication and respect for each other, creating a workplace where everyone can contribute, grow and be successful.

We are driven by excellence

 We take great pride in delivering the best for our clients, holding ourselves and each other to the highest standards.

We empower our employees to challenge the status quo, and we encourage them to be bold, determined and original.

We are responsible and diligent investors, managing our impact on the environment and society, on behalf of our clients and other stakeholders

We deliver through collaboration

We believe that by working closely with our clients and with each other we can achieve great results.

We value the skills, expertise and knowledge of our colleagues, supporting each other to fully leverage our strengths.

We support an inclusive workplace, where different ideas, perspectives and backgrounds enrich our decision-making.

Talent and Development

We know our people are our best asset, and that ambitious people are motivated by the chance to develop and learn. That’s why we invest in personal, professional, IT and leadership development of our employees, whether through in-house training or external courses. This means that every employee gets the chance to carve out a career that works for them.

GAM recognises the need for, and positively encourages, personal and professional development and the need for individuals to obtain the necessary qualifications to progress in their career.

We have a dedicated Talent & Development team whose primary role is to support the development of our people. Being part of any business team you receive the support to succeed in your day-to-day job and the knowledge and skills you need to take on more responsibility as you progress through the organisation.

Some development opportunities include (may vary on location and role):

  • - Professional development (e.g. IMC, IAD, CFA, AZEK, CAIA, Swiss Fund & Asset Management Officer , ACCA, AICPA)
  • - Personal development (e.g. managing and developing people, effective communication skills)
  • - Lunch and learn sessions
This year, following feedback from employees, we launched LinkedIn Learning, a new e-learning resource for all employees with a digital library of more than 6,000 courses covering a wide range of technical, business, software and creative topics.

Rewards and Benefits

We offer a comprehensive range of benefits and performance-based compensation, which are designed to attract, retain and motivate the best people.

We also offer employees a variety of lifestyle and family benefits to promote their well-being in and out of the workplace. These benefits vary according to local market conditions, but can include participation in a non-contributory pension, as well as medical and life cover.

Our salaries reflect each employee’s role and experience, and take into account local practices, external benchmarks and the need to remain competitive.

Our employees are eligible for an annual discretionary performance-based bonus. We believe this incentivises and rewards an individual’s contribution to the overall success of GAM.

Diversity and Inclusion

We have many different nationalities employed within GAM and recognise that individuals are unique and diverse. We recognise and accept people's differences and the diversity of the communities in which we operate. We create an environment where individuals have mutual respect, trust and understanding and give equal opportunities for employment and advancement to all, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion or professional background.

We value and respect independent thinking, different opinions and perspectives and encourage our employees to support one another and work together to reach a common goal.

We encourage employees to get to know their colleagues better by offering a wide range of subsidised sporting and social events. The choice of activities vary across the offices but all offer an opportunity to relax and get to know colleagues in and outside of work.

We are delighted to be part of the Investment2020 initiative. The purpose of our UK trainee programme is to enable individuals with limited or no exposure to financial services to start their careers and gain the skills and experience required to progress within the investment management industry.

When we signed up to the 100BlackInterns programme in 2020, its goal was to offer 100 internships to black students across the UK to help kick-start their career in investment management. With only 12 black portfolio managers who currently run money in the UK, it sought to tackle the poor representation of black people in investment roles in the industry. The founders received an overwhelming response to the initiative with 200 firms making an amazing 450 offers. As a result, the programme has expanded and rebranded, with the new objective to offer 10,000 internships over five years across 24 different sectors involving more than 700 companies. At GAM, we are proud to support this programme.

GAM is offering a professional and practice-oriented vocational apprenticeship in the "Service & Administration" sector, with an intensive focus on the world of finance. During your apprenticeship, you will gain experience across departments, within a friendly environment where our employees are eager to pass on their expertise. We are excited to be able to invest time and energy into your personal development and training.
