Who we're looking forWe're looking for a Solutions Manager with the experience and desire to shape our LDI solutions and help build out and grow our 64bn LDI business in a robust and scalable manner, whilst maintaining the care, attention and client tailoring we are renowned for.We are looking for someone who has the desire and ability to help us improve our products, processes and materials, and to work with various Schroders and external teams, so we can give each client even better outcomes.About SchrodersWe're a global investment manager. We help institutions, intermediaries and individuals around the world invest money to meet their goals, fulfil their ambitions, and prepare for the future.We have over 5,000 people on six continents. We've been around for over 200 years, but keep adapting as society and technology changes. What doesn't change is our commitment to helping our clients, and society, prosper.The baseWe moved into our new HQ in the City of London in 2018. We're close to our clients, in the heart of the UK's financial centre. We offer flexible working appropriate for a client solutions focused role.The teamThe LDI Solutions team is currently a multi-talented team of 10. We work closely together with our specific LDI portfolio managers (4) and derivative structurers (2). We also collaborate closely with our wider solutions colleagues including those who joined us in early 2022 (LDI team of 10) as part of Schroders' acquisition of River and Mercantile's Solutions Division. This helps us to deliver integrated solutions and push forwards the best way to deliver on our client obligations.We design and implement liability hedging and related strategies and risk management overlays for clients, using our range of multi-client and bespoke pooled funds, as well as through segregated portfolios. The solutions principally use physical gilts, gilt based derivatives such as repo and total return swaps, and interest rate and inflation swaps. In addition, we integrate these hedging strategies with complementary exposures including other derivative overlays (e.g. equity options, futures and total swaps, currency hedges or synthetic credit exposures) or a range of credit strategies, particularly with respect to the implementation of our growing CDI business. Our clients are mostly UK defined benefit pension schemes, but they interact with us through a variety of governance models including both internal and external fiduciaries; this has been a significant growth area for the business.We work within the governance structure that best suits our clients, and integrate our portfolio with their other investments, whether they are with Schroders or other asset managers. In many cases, this means leading Schroders' representation of blended solutions that combine many of our capabilities.We look for ways to standardise and automate our day to day work, so we can give extra care and attention to the things that make a difference. We take pride in creating interesting content that tells our story in a clear, concise and compelling way.We're open to flexible working so we can all balance our personal and professional commitments.What you'll doHelp us grow our business through written proposals, due diligence and pitching; develop our message and the ways that we deliver it Work closely with our clients and their advisers to understand and capture the outcome they wantCapture and analyse clients' liabilities, and construct portfolios and solutions that hedge the risks embedded in themCoordinate and oversee investments in complementary strategies, working with specialists from teams across SchrodersImprove our clients' experiences and how we report information to themLead on delivering specific key team initiatives and goalsManage and enhance relationships, across various Schroders teams as well as with clients and advisers Act as an ambassador for the team and the result of our work internally and externally, in a professional but friendly mannerThe knowledge, experience and qualifications you needExperience with liability focused asset management solutionsAn interest and understanding of pension schemes, their liabilities and the instruments used to hedge them, including derivativesCare and diligence in completing accurate analysis and solution design, and the desire to make the way we do things more robust, scalable and efficientReady to lead prospective and current client engagement, and deliver complex concepts in a clear and concise way, both written and face to faceDesire to shape how we communicate with clients and to build and manage efficient processes to deliver informationThe knowledge, experience and qualifications that will helpExperience with and understanding of complementary strategies; equity, credit and currency derivatives, credit based solutions including CDI, or other integrated solutionsWhat you'll be likeSelf-motivated and enthusiasticFlexible, highly curious and willing to learnA structured thinker who's also able to look at things from different anglesGreat at unpicking a problem, from start to end, own and deliver the solutionAble to work under pressure, on several priorities at once, and with tight deadlinesGreat at working with other people, sharing and communicating decisionsKeen to improve what we do for our clients and how we do itWe're looking for the best, whoever they areSchroders is an equal opportunities employer.
