APAC Credit Trader
Wellington Management
Central Hong Kong, Hong Kong


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.

We are transitioning to a hybrid work environment where both remote work and the office play a critical role. Our vision is a future where all employees are empowered to work flexibly to drive the best outcomes for our clients.

Flexible work is a mindset and a core value. Our employees are encouraged to work remotely two days a week as a standard practice and will have flexibility in terms of working hours.

We are seeking to hire a Credit Trader to execute orders from portfolio managers and analysts across our APAC book of business, to include cash and derivatives.

This is an execution role, but there is significant opportunity and expectation to add value to client portfolios through collaboration with portfolio managers and analysts.

This position is based in our Hong Kong or Singapore office. However, we are transitioning to a hybrid work environment in which both remote work and time spent in the office will play a critical role.

Going forward, our employees are welcome to work remotely two days a week as a standard practice. The trader will be working collaboratively with our global trading teams located in Boston, London, and Hong Kong.

Wellington Management's trading philosophy and practices are based on the principles of seeking best execution, contributing to portfolio alpha, and managing regulatory, operational, liquidity and investment risks.

We seek to execute orders in a manner consistent with these principles and in accordance with our written policies, which emphasize the fair dissemination, aggregation, and allocation of investment opportunities across our investment platform and ultimately our clients.
