Hi there, I am interviewing for a role in Accounts Associate at PIMCO in Asia but not too sure what the role is about. I don't want to seem too dumb about it when I come down.
It seems that the PIMCO strategy is to "outsource business to investment management companies" where they "select managers and cost controls". The JD seems to be like typical wealth management stuff preparing client reports on portfolio performance, risk metrics ettc. I was wondering if anyone would have insight into how PIMCO is doing in Asia and what an accounts analyst role entails?
Interview coming up for an account analyst position at PIMCO which falls under their Account Management - Client Servicing group. The job posting describes the role as the following... "The Account Associate Group serves a unique and dynamic role that is based around the core responsibility of servicing PIMCO’s institutional clients. The individuals that make up this team work within the broader account management group to ensure delivery of the highest level of service to clients.
Which one would you guys pick based on exits (MBA, more FO roles, etc.), learning, etc?
They're all very different and there's less information on them. I'd like to stay within finance (ideally a more FO role at a hedge fund) and am open to business school. Not looking to go into IB or PE.
Is anyone familiar with PIMCO's superdays? I am interviewing with a department that isn't the most technical (isn't Account/Portfolio, more client relationships) and am curious how the interviews and the 'assessment' are. Is the assessment an excel test? If so, what functions/formulas are expected?
