This is an exciting opportunity for an exceptional individual to make an impact in our growing Strategic Insights team and further their career in a consulting environment.

Company Overview

NMG Consulting is a leading global specialist consultancy, offering consulting, insights, analytics, and implementation to financial institutions including wealth management firms (pension funds, platforms, and advice providers), asset managers (institutional and retail), and in protection (insurers and reinsurers).

Summary Statement

As a consultant in our growing Strategic Insights team, you will be responsible for producing leading insights that help our clients in their strategic decisions-making. You will do this primarily by improving access to their customers across priority markets and distribution channels, building and measuring brand & reputation, testing product concepts and understanding new markets.

You will work on bespoke primary research studies, and significantly contribute to a growing suite of bespoke and multi-client, regional and global studies for clients in asset management, wealth management, and protection.

The role is focused on global, European and UK insights programs across wealth and asset management.

It is very hands on and will involve immersion in all aspects of the insights process, from study design, respondent sampling, fieldwork, analysis, insight generation, and delivery of content, across qualitative and quantitative methodologies. There is ample opportunity for rapid professional growth in a client-focused, commercial environment that encourages and rewards curiosity, entrepreneurial instinct, and initiative.

There will be close interaction with our clients and consulting team, opportunities to interview senior industry executives for asset owners (pension funds, sovereigns, private banks etc.) for our institutional-focused studies and undertake in-depth primary research among financial advisers and end consumers. Many of our studies are global, and extensive international travel to markets in Europe, North America and APAC is a feature.

Our work can be highly demanding, complex, and produces leading insight and often global content. Accordingly, this role suits a motivated, collaborative, curious and highly communicative individual who possesses strong technical and analytical skills, an appetite for client and stakeholder management, and personal qualities of perseverance and commitment to excellent outcomes.

The immersion in our methodologies along with the ability to articulate insights will be critical for success, but there is also significant scope for improvement in processes in an entrepreneurial environment with real room for growth.

This requires an individual with a combination of industry knowledge, technical skill, and a flair for content. For the successful candidate, it will build their knowledge of asset and wealth management, offer new experiences, and develop their consulting capability and expertise.
