GAM is one of the world’s leading independent asset managers. We also have a private labelling business, which provides fund administration 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.
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 teamwork, integrity, entrepreneurial flair and professional excellence.
People come to work with us because they value our client-focused, collaborative culture.
We’re in business to advance the potential of our clients’ capital by making investment decisions that help them achieve their aspirations. 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.

We are agile thinkers, who excel by looking past the headlines and challenging the status quo. Our internal processes and structures are set up for nimble and swift decision-making. Together, this allows us to be proactive, anticipate clients’ needs and offer them credible solutions.
High standards of integrity drive our approach. We are open to other people’s points of view and invite conversation and discussion. Our ethos is aligned with those we invest and work for.
Curiosity and entrepreneurial spirit drive us to dig deeper and provide new ideas to make a difference. We are inspired by the unknown and empower individuals to make well-supported decisions and act on their convictions. We do what we truly believe in.
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 Learning & 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):
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.
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.
