ESG Analyst, Sovereign Debt

London, United Kingdom, £ £ - Annual Annual, Permanent



Wellington Management offers comprehensive investment management capabilities that span nearly all segments of the global capital markets. Our investment solutions, tailored to the unique return and risk objectives of institutional clients in more than 60 countries, draw on a robust body of proprietary research and a collaborative culture that encourages independent thought and healthy debate. As a private partnership, we believe our ownership structure fosters a long-term view that aligns our perspectives with those of our clients.


Within the Sustainable Investment platform, we are seeking an Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) Analyst to join our Investment Research team. Based in Boston or London, the ESG Analyst will bring an understanding of the material ESG issues relevant to global sovereign debt, and will effectively communicate differentiated investment insights to Portfolio Managers and Analysts, to be incorporated into our clients\' portfolios.

Wellington views investment research as its core competitive advantage. The ESG Analyst will be a regular contributor to the investment dialogue. They will work with our Emerging and Developed Markets Sovereign Debt teams to define Wellington\'s approach to ESG sovereign debt coverage, establish and help execute an engagement agenda with sovereign issuers, and consider research partnerships to further our effort.

In addition to conducting fundamental ESG research and engagement, as appropriate the ESG Analyst will have the opportunity to represent the team and communicate our ESG integration process to clients, consultants, and prospects.


The following essential skills are required for the role:

  • Passion - We are seeking an ESG Analyst who is passionate about both sustainability issues and global markets, and who has experience analyzing ESG issues as they pertain to sovereign debt, whether that be through their academic studies or in their professional career. The ideal candidate will bring subject matter expertise on Environmental issues in particular, ideally alongside Governance topics and Social issues, along with an understanding of how these can impact sovereign debt;
  • Superior collaboration and influencing skills - The successful candidate will enjoy contributing to a highly collaborative investment environment, and will embrace the benefits of overlapping lines of idea generation. The ESG Analyst will build strong trusting relationships internally with colleagues and externally with clients, prospects, and local government/regulatory agencies. The ability to provide a point of view and challenge the status quo is critical, as is the humility to admit mistakes, and a desire to learn from others. They must recognize the benefits of diverse perspectives. The ability to communicate (both verbally and in writing) action oriented investment recommendations clearly and with conviction, and to contribute to an open investment dialogue is important;
  • Growth mindset - The flexibility and openness to continue learning, evolving and growing as an Analyst. The ESG Analyst will have a global perspective, and creative approach for thinking about innovation and the evolution of Sustainable Investing and ESG as it applies to evaluating sovereign debt globally.

Additional qualifications and individual characteristics include:
  • A strong academic background, including a Masters level degree (or equivalent qualification) in Economics is required. This should include studies specifically related to Environmental Economics, Climate Change, Energy Policy or similar;
  • Relevant professional experience (1-3 years) as an ESG Analyst or Sovereign Analyst would be additive, but is not essential;
  • Demonstrated ability to employ quantitative/econometric modeling and research skills to assist in economic and market analysis;
  • Strong work ethic and attention to detail;
  • Ability to set priorities and execute a research agenda;
  • Capacity for differentiated thinking and ability to problem solve effectively;
