We are a leading global real estate and infrastructure manager and the combination of our scale, breadth and capability provides access to superior investment opportunities for our clients.

Sharing a heritage with AMP that spans more than 160 years, our home strength in Australia has enabled us to grow globally to be one of the largest investment managers in the Asia Pacific region. With offices located across four continents, our collaboration across regions allows us to leverage insights and provide greater access to new investment opportunities, helping us to create a range of firsts on behalf of our clients.

Additionally, in the medium to long term, to be a key contributor in the development, establishment and ongoing portfolio management of both Australian and global sustainable investment client solutions, including fundamental bottom-up company analysis and stock selection, portfolio construction, client marketing and reporting.

  • We recognise that a broad range of education backgrounds may provide relevant skills for this role. Undergraduate degrees in accounting, finance, environmental economics or environmental management would be ideal, but this is not an exhaustive list. The use of these skills within a sustainable investment context will be critical.
