Based in Henley on Thames, we look after around £74.6bn worth of assets (as at 31 May '14) on behalf of individual clients, pension funds and corporate institutions, making us one of the largest independent investment managers in the UK.
We form part of Invesco Ltd, a leading global investment manager, serving clients in more than 150 countries.
Investment management is what we do. We look after our customers' money and help them achieve their financial goals. Typically, these goals could be:
saving up a deposit for a new house planning for retirement investing for school or university fees
Our investment approach is based on the view that there are no short cuts to long-term investment success. Our fund managers have a wealth of expertise and are focused on achieving the objectives of the funds they manage.
Why join us?
We like to think our employees are best in class. The expectations are high but in return we put a great deal of effort into creating a first-class working environment. Personal development is strongly encouraged and supported at Invesco. And this doesn't simply mean going on the odd training course. It's about individuals taking control of their own futures, with guidance from senior management, and working in areas of the business in which they wish to develop and learn more. Development planning is for everyone.
'Work should be fun' is a cliché, but we do try our best to help people get to know each other and provide opportunities for socialising outside the formality of the office. There is an active Sports and Social committee; this gives employees the chance to enjoy quiz nights, weekends away, themed nights out and sporting events like golf or horse racing.
Our Henley campus is situated close to Henley railway station and there is a free shuttle bus service offered from Reading railway station. There is a state-of-the-art subsidised gym on site offering a full range of equipment and regular classes available to all staff, Monday to Friday. Invesco offers a full range of employee benefits to all trainees; including private medical insurance, pension and travel loans amongst others.
