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.

Manchester has developed a name for itself as a hub of innovation. Along with some of the best bands to ever grace the planet, Manchester is home to a thriving a finance sector, a growing legal industry, and a bustling creative hotspot, boasting some of the biggest brands found anywhere. Here at Broadgate, we love being close to the centre of the action, which is one of the many reasons why we decided to open our Manchester office back in 2018. Since then, we’ve been lucky enough to provide staffing solutions for hundreds of companies, enabling us to make incredible progress on our mission to build diversity, create inclusion, and encourage workplace innovation.

Turning to a third-recruitment agency is a great way to save yourself a huge amount of time and money throughout the process, and it grants you access to a much wider talent pool.
The team at Broadgate specialise in delivering staffing solutions in Cybersecurity, Finance, Accounting and Audit, Risk and Analytics, Transformation and Change, Compliance, Legal, and Financial Crime, and other areas relating to business protection and business enablement. We’re not like other Manchester recruitment agencies – we’re a people-before-profit operation that takes a DEIB-led approach to hiring (diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging).
By placing people at the heart of every decision, we’re able to access talent from the widest available candidate pool.
