What happens after you buy a stock or bond? Ensuring that trades are executed accurately and within portfolio guidelines is the work of global investment support. Comprising several behind-the-scenes units, our investment operations team connects MFS’ traders to the wider universe of banks and custodians.
MFS® is a premier global investment manager. As we create new products and invest in new securities, markets, and nontraditional assets to meet the needs of investors worldwide, we look for our operations units to ensure data integrity, trade processing accuracy, collateral management, and corporate actions. If you are detail oriented, seek broad exposure to the mutual fund industry, and would enjoy the opportunity to develop core leadership skills, you may be a strong addition to our team.
With hundreds of portfolios under management at MFS, reconciling daily trading activity is a complex process. Ensuring trades are accurately executed is only the beginning. Maintaining good working relationships with banks and investment houses is a key responsibility, as is making sure cash balances and accounts are reconciled every day.
With functions ranging from front-end compliance and corporate actions to data integrity and trade support, our middle office group is a direct link between our portfolio managers and our back-office processing unit. We also work with sales teams to “onboard” new accounts and with traders to discuss the processing of new security types. Problem solving is a core component of what we do. Our work demands that each team member develops the ability to identify issues and to quickly assess what to handle and what to elevate.

"Ultimately, portfolio managers need to have 100% confidence that what they see in their portfolios is accurate. We manage the post-execution life cycle of every trade and make sure assets are where they’re supposed to be."Why Work at MFS?
