What is Investment Management?
¾ of British households use the services of an investment management company to ensure they have the money they need for the future, mostly in the form of a pension. This money is invested in a number of ways from company shares to large property projects like the creation of the Olympic Park through to supporting the development of pioneering new treatments for cancer – investment management is at the heart of it all. The sector employs around 100,000 people in the UK alone and Investment 20/20 is responsible for promoting around 200 x 12 month trainee vacancies for graduates each year - helping you get a foot in the door and supporting the first step on your career journey. These jobs are to work in one of 50 different investment management firms, in a paid job and supported by a training programme to give you the knowledge and the networks you need to succeed.
