Job Description for Investment Manager

An investment manager manages the money invested by individual investors, institutions that are investing a portion of the company’s assets, and/or funds related to the company's pension plan. The investment manager must protect the current value of those investments, strategically choose the best manner in which to grow them, be on guard for changes in the climates of the various investment options available, and adjust their client’s investment positions as needed. Usually, they work with clients before investing to determine their goals and how they would like their investments to be managed. In addition to buying and selling of securities on their client’s behalf, they also must pay close attention to investment performance, settle transactions, and meet regulatory and client reporting requirements.
