AHL Portfolio Management is the team responsible for the portfolio construction and investment management of the firm’s flagship funds as well as the AIS (AHL Investment Solutions) business. The team has been running for several years. It manages a diverse set of funds both in terms of trading styles and asset classes. It is also responsible for portfolio construction as well as allocation research inside AHL.
The Portfolio Management area is split into three sub teams: Analytics, Monetisation and Engineering.
The Portfolio Analytics team’s purpose is to deliver quantifiable, transparent, and actionable insights into our research process.
The Portfolio Monetisation team’s purpose is to maximise the dollar output of our research in our funds.
Finally, the Portfolio Engineering team’s purpose is to innovate in how we deliver alpha to clients.
As part of its mandate, the Portfolio Engineering team is ultimately responsible for the analysis, methodology and day to day management of bespoke portfolio solutions for clients. Additionally, the team is responsible for the Engineering and Implementation of fund changes collaborating across AHL and the wider Man business. The team supports the management of client portfolios through regular and diligent monitoring, research, and implementation in accordance with both internal and mandated guidelines.
The ideal candidate will be involved in both the investment management process, client engagement and portfolio construction / allocation research.
