    A role which removes most of your autonomy to make investment decisions

    I have been working at Citi Quilter full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good reputation in the marketplace, good IT systems and marketing literature

    Cons

    Investment Managers more like Relationship Managers, are simply told what to do by the Investment Committee (themselves following APCIMS benchmarks). No attempt at outperforming said benchmarks, so really just an expensive form of tracker fund. No attempt at personalising portfolios for clients, all too often clients end up with identical portfolios, despite differing circumstances.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the Investment Managers more autonomy, don't treat them like children. Don't put clients into a 'one size fits all' system - they are all unique. Investment Managers aren't Relationship Managers, otherwise they would work at a private bank and get paid more.

    Great place to learn for new grads, or great place to work towards retirement

    Pros

    Training is second to none; the company is willing to sponsor you for studies and professional exams, as well as time off to get you ready for them.

    Cons

    Career progression is slow and limited for young grads joining the firm, but it's a fantastic place to get some basic grounding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more flexible and listen to what the young employees are saying or risk losing good talent.
