Hiring for Fund Management Companies

What is a Fund Manager?


  • A fund manager is responsible for implementing a fund's investing strategy and managing its portfolio trading activities. A fund can be managed by one person, by two people as co-managers, or by a team of three or more people.

    Fund managers are paid a fee for their work, which is usually a percentage of the fund's average assets under management (AUM). They can be found working in fund management with mutual funds, pension funds, trust funds, and hedge funds.

    Traditionally, a fund manager does not handle client money and or the custody/trustee because of potential conflict of interest.

    In Singapore, Fund managers must be licensed (see Licenced Fund Management) by the MAS.
