The Investment Management Track of the Scalable Capital Graduate Program prepares you for a career and potential leadership position in our Investment Management team. The team has three core areas: Client Service, Operations & Development and Capital Markets.

Become an Investment Management Professional and support either of the teams as a specialist. Provide excellent service to our clients and actively contribute to improve the client experience. Support operating and advancing our digital investment platforms across countries, custodians and products and be the interface to external and internal stakeholders.

Rotation 1: Client Services

What are you going to do

Get to know our clients and their needs. While providing support and information to our national and international clients you are their first point of contact. Share the needs and feedback of our client within the organisation and derive improvements of our products from there. With the emphasis on asset management you help analyze performance of client portfolios and research topics for the Capital Markets team.

What are you going to learn

Understand the demands of our clients and help finding solutions for their problems in close collaboration with other teams to improve clients’ experience of our product. Have a direct influence on the development of the company and our product with your ideas and research results.

Our operations department is the engine room of Scalable Capital. Discover how we operate our digital investment platforms and products across multiple countries and custodians.

Choose between a product focused rotation, as part of our Product Management team, a client focused rotation, for example in our Digital Marketing or Sales team or support the Capital Markets team. Participate in all day-to-day activities and be responsible for a project on your own. However, you can also extend your first or second rotation.

What are you going to learn

Deep dive into another part of the company you are interested in and you think you can gain valuable skills for your future position at Scalable Capital. Discover what it takes to build a new feature starting only with client’s feedback, support the Sales team presenting our product to clients, or learn how we actually analyse ETFs and how to trade them.
