Portfolio managers are responsible for building investment strategies, overseeing a company’s assets and projects, and developing a portfolio of investments that meet the financial objectives of their clients. Generally, portfolio managers possess a range of advanced qualifications and command very high base salaries. According to Glassdoor, the average salary for a portfolio manager in the UK is £80049 a year, but this figure can rise significantly based on performance and experience.
Many companies will require their portfolio managers to hold master’s degrees in finance or a related field, and have additional certifications in financial analysis before they can be considered. Even as companies rush to implement automation to fill the gaps left behind by the talent shortage, there’s no replacing the guidance and elite skillset of a portfolio manager.
As automation tools evolve, Portfolio managers will need to be able to leverage the power they promise to stay competitive. If you’re in the market for a portfolio manager of your own, you’ll need to make sure that you get it right the first time. Poor investment choices can be incredibly hard to rectify ¬– there’s a huge amount of responsibility on the shoulders of a portfolio manager, and choosing the right one (in the shadow of a recession) is incredibly tough.
