Job Description

AustralianSuper is for all Australians and businesses; we help invest members’ money to create the best possible retirement outcome. More than 2.2 million members trust us to invest more than $130 billion on their behalf. Our size has given us the ability to leverage significant investment opportunities for long term performance and lower fees that are passed onto our members.

We put members first in everything we do and are committed to the recruitment, development and support of a diverse workforce that share our values of Energy, Integrity, Generosity of Spirit and Excellent Outcomes.

Here’s where you come in…

The Portfolio Management System (PMS) is the core system used by AustralianSuper’s Investment teams to manage the Fund’s investment in Options, Asset Classes and portfolios.

This position plays a critical role in supporting the investment process by ensuring appropriate processes are in place to capture and maintain a comprehensive set of investment data in order to produce a complete, accurate and timely Investment Book of Record (IBOR).

Reporting to the Manager Portfolio Management Support, you will be a critical member of the team that will work to monitor and manage mandatory Corporate Action events and to ensure timely election instructions are received from the Investment teams on voluntary elections. You will have a passion for and deep understanding of corporate actions.

You will be the stakeholder’s first point of contact with any Corporate Action related queries as the subject matter expert and will ensure corporate events are loaded to schedules daily or as they are announced.

You’ll need…

Solid understanding of investment industry processes and instruments.

You will have worked in similar roles previously and have experience with and understand inter funding structures, and variances between the Investment Book and Accounting book of records. This will require a strong attention to detail, and the ability to manage workload to meet deadlines and expectations.

The role will require you to have proven stakeholder management skills and will confidently work with portfolio managers and the likes to achieve their needs. Working in a team environment, you will enjoy working with and supporting others, whilst still being able to work autonomously and drive your own work outcomes.

Prior experience with Aladdin is preferred but not essential.

If you would like the opportunity to work in a challenging, growing and rapidly evolving environment to deliver outstanding results that benefit members, please apply now! Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are encouraged to apply.

Agencies please note: this vacancy is being managed directly by AustralianSuper’s Recruitment team. We will contact our preferred agency partners should we require additional support. Thank you.
