The Role

Role Description

I work in the Institutional Sales Team in the Milan Office. The team’s objective is to provide Institutional clients with tailored solutions to their needs thanks to Fidelity investment strategies. Typical clients include Social security agencies, banking foundations, pension funds, insurance companies and proprietary desks of companies. My main task is to look for opportunities to develop Fidelity’s client base. This usually starts from the analysis of potential clients’ current portfolios. If an opportunity is identified I would try to develop a strategy which improves the targeted portfolio allocation and present it to my manager.
