eFinancial Careers brings you investment consulting jobs currently available in Hong Kong.
An investment consultant will help the trustees of a fund, or single wealthy client choose the correct mix of investments assets, and the asset managers they should place their capital with.
Clients are usually laypersons, with some understanding of the financial sector, but limited investment acumen. They rely on the advice from investment consultants to help them maximise the value created by their funds, whilst taking an acceptable level of risk.
The consultant discusses investment goals with the client, to understand their appetite for risk, future value goals and interim income requirements.
By combining these factors the consultant can develop an understanding of what the client's investment portfolio should look like. The consultant will then work with more junior members of the team to identify various investment products and funds that would be suitable for inclusion in the portfolio.
The junior analysts may do some modeling of projected performance, and collate a number of suggested portfolios for the investment consultant to present to the client.
The ultimate investment decision will be made by the client, after the consultant has fully explained the risk and benefits of each option.
