Portfolio Manager High Yield at SEB in Stockholm

Would you like to work at the Credit Fixed Income unit? Are you driven, independent and structured? We are looking for a portfolio manager for our high yield team in Stockholm.

About the position
You will primarily work with managing assets in the US and European markets. We monitor the market from a sector perspective, and you will be responsible for the investments in a few sectors. Together with the team, you will also determine the strategic portfolio composition. Our investment process has its starting point in a thorough credit analysis, but we also use quantitative methods and models in our bond selection process. The position requires extensive contacts with the international capital market and with issuing companies.

SEB Credit Fixed Income is a unit within SEB Investment Management AB. We manage fixed income credit funds and segregated mandates for institutional clients. We are active in investment grade and high yield bonds, and our products span relative, total and absolute return strategies. Our main focus is the international bond market. You will work in a team of eight persons specialized in managing corporate bonds.

Your profile
To succeed in the role you need to be a team player with a high degree of integrity, independence and internal drive. You have a strong interest in capital markets and especially the high yield market. Previous experience as a portfolio manager in the credit fixed income market is a big advantage. You work in a structured way and understand the drivers behind market assessments with regard to risk compensation.

We prefer that you have several years of experience from high yield portfolio management and credit research. We also expect you to have a M.Sc. in Economics or in Engineering with additional studies in economics. You must be fluent in Swedish and English.

Working at SEB
You will work in an industry undergoing major changes and at a workplace characterized by entrepreneurship, openness and genuine commitment. Working with us will give you the possibility to grow your talent through everyday learning, extensive training and other development opportunities. We see the value of a flexible working life, wellness benefits and a healthy lifestyle for our employees. Also, since the start of our company, we have taken an active role in our society’s social development and all our employees have, for example, the opportunity to contribute by getting engaged in a number of social initiatives.
