We are a self managed investment trust whose purpose is to grow the value of the capital that our shareholders have invested with us. This has been our aim for 125 years and we maintain a prudent approach to investment with an emphasis on long term returns.
Who are we?
We are the UK’s largest generalist investment trust by market value listed on the London Stock Exchange. As at the 31 of August 2012 we managed net assets of over £2.4bn. Our focus is on investment in global equities and fixed income, which we believe will provide good long term growth and income. We have outperformed the global growth sector on an annual basis over 5 years*.
* On a NAV and TSR basis as at 31 August 2012.
Our Management Training Programme is a rotational programme, based from our headquarters in Dundee. It has been specifically designed to provide trainees with an overview and understanding of the whole business.
Over a two year fixed term period, trainees will experience rotations in four key areas;
- Investment – Global Equities, Fixed Income, SRI and Private Equity
- Asset Management – Client Management, Sales and Marketing
- Savings – Projects, Platform Operations
- Executive – Strategy, CSR, Governance
Training and Development
At Alliance Trust we believe in the development of our people and therefore offer our graduates room to grow. Many of our previous Management Trainees have studied towards their IMC and CFA qualifications and have been involved in our mentoring and leadership programmes. Throughout the programme trainees will gain valuable industry specific qualifications in addition to individual training which will be tailored to suit their skill set and previous experience.
