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

Investment Manager (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

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

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

ConsInvestment 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 Senior ManagementGive 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at Citi Quilter

ProsTraining 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.

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

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