Job Description

The Newton Investment Management Group describes a group of affiliated companies that provide investment advisory services under the brand name ‘Newton’ or ‘Newton Investment Management’. Those companies are Newton Investment Management Ltd, registered in the UK, and Newton Investment Management North America LLC, registered in the US, and both are indirect subsidiaries of The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation (‘BNY Mellon’).
We focus on delivering outcomes for our clients across:

Equity opportunities – including small and mid cap, regional and thematic capabilities
Income – equity, fixed income and multi-asset
Absolute return – fixed income and multi-asset
Multi-asset solutions
Thematic and sustainable strategies

These capabilities are driven by our global investment platform which harnesses both fundamental and quantitative research, alongside a thematic framework and, where appropriate and as applicable, environmental, social and governance (ESG) analysis.

With offices in London, New York, Boston and San Francisco, Newton manages £ billion of assets (as at 30 Sept ). Newton provides discretionary and non-discretionary investment advice to institutional clients, including US and global pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, central banks, endowments, foundations, insurance companies, registered mutual funds, other pooled investment vehicles and other institutions, and, via BNY Mellon, to individuals.

Newton is one of the BNY Mellon Investment Management (BNYM) family of eight boutique investment firms. BNYM IM is the global investment management arm of BNY Mellon, one of the world’s major financial services groups with operations in 35 countries. BNYM IM’s goal is to build and manage investment strategies that address the ever-changing needs of its clients, through a model that offers the best of both worlds: specialist expertise through eight forward-thinking investment firms, offering solutions across every major asset class, backed by the strength, scale and proven financial stewardship of BNY Mellon. The 7th largest asset manager worldwide, with $2.2 trillion AUM (as of 31 March ) BNYM IM provides a robust corporate foundation, together with worldwide resources and administrative support, while its investment boutiques are free to concentrate on what they do best – delivering specialist and focused investment performance to clients. This structure encourages an entrepreneurial, focused approach to investment and creates an environment in which each firm can perform and build on its individual experience and strengths in the development of new products.
