Investment Management Jobs

A real estate investment manager can either work for a consultancy or in a client-side role. In both, their basic responsibilities are broadly similar: investing in portfolios. There are a broad range of businesses who require investment managers such as property companies, specialised investment management companies, funds and family offices.

Being an investment manager requires a detailed knowledge of real estate agency. In order to make wise and calculated investments, an investment manager will have to know the state of the real estate industry inside out as well as knowing how this relates to wider market trends to ensure that any investment is not ruined by external market factors.

In order to make the correct investments, an investment manager needs to have a proven ability to produce financial appraisals of their proposed investments using Excel. Being able to evaluate investment decision and present them clearly in a spreadsheet will, alongside making sound investments, mark out the best investment managers.
While many other areas of business need investment managers which require the same skills, when working within the real estate sector, it is advantageous to have a MRICS qualification. This will let potential employers know that your investment management skills rest firmly in the real estate sector. MRICS qualifications are the recognised standard in the UK and are becoming increasingly recognised in Europe as well as globally.
