At EY, you’ll have the chance to build a career as unique as you are, with the global scale, support, inclusive culture and technology to become the best version of you. And we’re counting on your unique voice and perspective to help EY become even better, too. Join us and build an exceptional experience for yourself, and a better working world for all. 


Preferred locations for this position are London and New York City but highly qualified applicants from other locations will still be considered.


In a fast-changing and uncertain world, the right insights make the difference between seizing an opportunity and missing it entirely. EY Knowledge helps EY to win in the market by providing the right insights at the right time through an agile, client-first organization. 

This Analyst position will see you provide deep insights and perspectives on the Wealth & Asset Management sector to EY leadership, participate in client meetings and external events to strengthen EY’s presence and reputation in the market, and mentor more junior analysts to develop their commercial and analytical skills. Focused areas will include either Sustainability, Wealth Management & Private banking, or Alternative assets.

The opportunity:

EY recognizes the power of knowledge to anticipate change, unlock value and drive growth. As a Wealth & Asset Management Industry Analyst, you will provide powerful insight to EY's Financial Services leaders and practitioners related to their external market positioning and client service. You will combine strong analytical skills and a strategic mindset with real-world perspectives driven by an understanding of client issues and broader marketplace drivers. You will have a key role to connect and collaborate across our global network of Knowledge Analysts along with our Industries and Service Lines business network to further strengthen the quality of your insights.


Your key responsibilities include:

  • Engaging with and challenging EY senior leadership to provide commercial and provocative perspectives on the issues, challenges and opportunities facing our clients in the industry
  • Co-creating insights beyond publicly available information, interacting with EY leaders and external networks to build proprietary data sets and evidence for differentiated points of view
  • Leading/contributing to multidisciplinary teams for delivery of strategic and complex projects, often working virtually across industries, service lines and geographies


Skills and attributes for success:
As a trend-watcher for the Wealth & Asset Management Industry, you will harness a natural curiosity about business models and emerging themes that are reshaping the Wealth & Asset Management sector to curate and co-create insights that empower our clients to act decisively.
We know it takes specialist skills to gather, generate and analyse a rich pool of information and turn it into powerful insights that give clear future-facing directions. You will be known for translating your big picture thinking and ability to explain complex concepts into crisp, clear, concise and graphic-rich communications, using appropriate analytics and visualization tools.

To qualify for the role, you must: 

  • Have 5+ years experience in researching trends in the Wealth & Asset Management industry
  • Expertise in at least one of the priority Wealth & Asset Management focus areas of Sustainability, Wealth Management & Private banking, or Alternative assets
  • Have deep analytic capabilities leveraged, including surveying and data storytelling, in support of EY’s Wealth & Asset Management thought leadership agenda
  • Have strong commercial acumen, able to connect client business issues with EY solutions
  • Have experience in interacting with senior business leaders, leading conversations, and offering differentiating perspectives
  • Have a proven ability to deliver succinct and structured oral and written communications


What we look for:
Someone who will thrive on partnering with our global Wealth & Asset Management Industry leaders and external client teams to create distinctive insights and perspectives for Wealth & Asset Management Industry practitioners to take to clients.  A trusted business advisor willing to work collaboratively in helping frame the business issues that drive new solutions for our Financial Services industry practice.


What we offer
As part of this role, you'll work in a highly integrated, global team with the opportunity and tools to grow, develop and drive your career forward. Here, you can combine global opportunity with flexible working. The EY benefits package goes above and beyond too, focusing on your physical, emotional, financial and social well-being. Your recruiter can talk to you about the benefits available in your country. Here’s a snapshot of what we offer:

  • Success as defined by you: We’ll provide the tools and flexibility, so you can make a meaningful impact, your way.
