We help the biggest names in business plan for every eventuality – we’re the world’s #1 insurance broker, the #1 provider of reinsurance, the #1 provider of investment consulting and the #1 provider of human capital consulting.
As the world leader in Investment Consulting, Aon has been advising employers and governments on their pension schemes and other assets for over 60 years. Today, we provide a wide range of clients with expertise that extends from setting their investment strategies and the day-to-day management of their investment portfolios, through to corporate transactions and transfers of assets from one investment manager to another.
Aon advises clients on a number of strategies that have taken advantage of recent financial market conditions, enabling their employees to enjoy retirement.
As a Graduate Investment Analyst, you will be a key member of our dedicated team, playing a vital role in meeting the expectations of our global clients through the delivery of high-quality servicing and advice. This will entail providing investment advice covering markets and strategic considerations, such as the management of assets and liabilities.
You will gain early experience of dealing with a wide range of investments and adapting investments around economic conditions and outlooks. You will also learn how and why pension scheme liabilities change as a result of economic assumptions, such as inflation and interest rates and the effect that market movements have on invested assets.
