Portfolio Management


Job Description


The Opportunity:


As a Fixed Income Credit Analyst, you’ll work closely with the Investment Policy Committee, other Capital Markets Analysts, Securities Analysts and our Portfolio Engineers to leverage macro investment themes into appropriate bond recommendations. You’ll also take part in sales and service efforts for multiple business units and contribute to team operational improvements. Successful Analysts have an appetite for developing critical thinking and analytical skills beyond the norm. Your innate curiosity should lead you to garner in-depth knowledge of our investment process and strategies, and to develop an understanding of how economic, political, and sentiment drivers influence capital markets.


The Day-to-Day:

  • Proactively help to identify bonds likely to outperform selected benchmarks by providing fundamental credit analysis on current and potential holdings
  • Provide the Investment Policy Committee with regular and ad hoc performance analysis and commentary including generating investment ideas, creating processes for analyzing bonds, and written reports on trends in bond markets
  • Utilize expertise to understand how market events impact forward relative returns, and develop and hone new and/or existing portfolio themes and views
  • Participate periodically in meetings with existing or prospective clients
  • Develop a comprehensive knowledge of our investment philosophy, process, portfolio themes and rationales
  • Drive output, process and system upgrades to enhance team productivity

Your Qualifications:

  • Have 5+ years of experience analyzing and evaluating different types of bonds (Corporate, Municipal, MSB/ABS, and Sovereign Bond Markets)
  • Demonstrated professional verbal and written communication skills across multiple audiences and platforms
  • Experience and desire to support client service and sales efforts
  • Demonstrated experience to rapidly learn and test new ways of thinking, doing and communicating, while being comfortable with ambiguity
  • Experience understanding and interpreting current events
  • Aptitude for working with data to derive fact-based insights

Why Fisher Investments:


Fisher Investments is a different kind of investment firm. We don’t come from Wall Street, nor do we believe we fit in with most of the finance industry, and we’re proud of that. We work for a bigger purpose: bettering the investment universe. From unmatched service to innovative perspectives on investing, it’s the people that make the Fisher purpose possible. After all, it’s our people that enable us to offer the level of service that we do. And we invest in them accordingly, offering exceptional benefits like:

  • 100% coverage of premiums for health, vision and dental insurance
  • A 50% 401(k) match, up to the IRS maximum
  • 20 days of PTO*, plus 9 paid holidays
  • 8 week paid Primary Caregiver Parental Leave
  • And much, much more

We also provide a cumulative, continuous learning and development framework customized for every employee. This emphasis on personal and professional growth has yielded an award-winning work environment; we’re Great Place to Work Certified, and The Oregonian named us as a Top Workplace.


But in the end, it’s not the perks that keep people here. They stay because they believe in our mission of service—our employees want to make a difference in an industry that can do better.


* California employees accrue up to 17 days of PTO and 3 days of sick time per year.
