A top Asset Manager in Cape Town is searching for an Investment Analyst to join their team. The Investment Team typically numbers 20 to 25 people (including Analysts and Portfolio Managers). This is small in comparison to the large number of applications they receive from smart, ambitious and hard-working people. This unfortunately means that they have to turn away many good applications, but they are always looking for exceptional candidates, and you don’t have anything to lose by trying. So if you think you have what it takes to succeed, we encourage you to apply.
