Wellington Management offers comprehensive investment management capabilities that span nearly all segments of the global capital markets. Our investment solutions, tailored to the unique return and risk objectives of institutional clients in more than 50 countries, draw on a robust body of proprietary research and a collaborative culture that encourages independent thought and healthy debate. As a private partnership, we believe our ownership structure fosters a long-term view that aligns our perspectives with those of our clients.


Wellington currently manages $470 billion in fixed income assets on behalf of our clients worldwide. Within our fixed income group, the Emerging Markets Debt (EMD) book of business is large, diverse and growing, and today totals $25 billion.  To ensure we continue to exceed our clients' investment expectations, we are seeking to recruit an experienced Portfolio Manager to join our EMD portfolio management team to be based in Boston or London.  Specifically, this individual will provide directional expertise and both long and short idea generation in a subset of portfolios across the book of business. The successful candidate will have deep global macroeconomic expertise, a policy-driven mindset, and a demonstrated track record of expressing macro-oriented views in the market that translate into positive alpha in portfolios. The ideal candidate will be highly networked in policy circles (e.g., DC, Brussels, the IMF), have a strong understanding of central bank policies around the globe, and be able to work collaboratively with team analysts to dig deeply into high-risk countries. 


The ideal candidate will have a minimum of five to ten years of emerging markets debt portfolio management experience with an attributable hedge fund, or long/short, track record.

Additional qualifications include but are not limited to:
  • Strong investment philosophy and process supported by rigorous analysis;
  • A track record as a risk taker that demonstrates clear investment skill;
  • Comfort taking risks within a strong risk management framework;
  • Ability to effectively communicate complex investment ideas and strategies to both internal peers and external clients;
  • Intellectual curiosity and flexibility in thinking;
  • Humility and ability to thrive in a highly collaborative global team with a strong desire to learn from and with other investors;
  • Ability and willingness to travel;
  • Fiduciary and client oriented mindset; and
  • Excellent academic credentials; an MBA/CFA or advanced degree will be viewed favorably.
