Day in the life


Month end is a critical period in Finance, there are various important tasks that I need to complete before we finalise the monthly financial accounts including posting month end expenses and carrying out analysis of cost areas such as data services and IT.



Life on the GAM trading desk is never dull, and no two days are ever the same. As a recently created business unit, we are responsible for all trading across the GAM group, covering a broad range of asset classes and products.



The Global Consultant Relations team is the firm’s primary contact with the biggest global investment advisory firms. The team’s main focus is to ensure GAM’s strategies are referenced by the global consultant community, working closely with regional sales teams.



The role of Compliance teams within financial services has grown in prominence in recent years as firms look to strengthen their control frameworks and decode the implications of regulatory change.
