Sales, Marketing, and Product
Our sales, marketing, and product team members are the faces and voices of MFS® to the financial advisors, consultants, and other financial professionals who sell our products. We support MFS’ corporate goals by weaving the MFS story into conversations held in offices, boardrooms, and living rooms around the world.
Sales at MFS are about building relationships. When an internal wholesaler calls a financial advisor and an institutional sales director makes a final presentation to a pension board, the conversations are very different, but the process is the same. We listen, understand clients' needs, and work with them to develop a solution. Because we solve many different problems for many different clients, we know that while every interaction will not result in a sale, every exchange can be a step toward a long-term relationship.
Our sales units are aligned with our clients. Our retail teams offer MFS mutual funds and managed account products to national and regional brokerage firms, insurance companies, and independent and financial institution-based financial advisors in the United States. Our international unit offers MFS Meridian Funds, retail investment products, and Sun Life annuity and investment contracts outside the United States.
Our institutional group offers a range of equity and fixed-income products through institutional vehicles and separately managed accounts to corporate and public pension funds, endowments, foundations, sovereign wealth funds and defined contribution plans, both domestically and internationally.
If you enjoy working in a collegial atmosphere, are a team player, are driven by sales success, and have the ability to listen and build long-term relationships with clients, you will find great opportunities and rewards at MFS. Whether we are selling products designed for individuals or institutions, all of our sales groups share a unity of purpose, a focus on building relationships, and a competitive advantage. Sales people at other organizations face competition from every corner, sales people at MFS know that their only competition is located outside the company.
A consistent investment process and a prestigious history make for a great story, but it’s the way you tell the story that helps create sales success. We make the MFS story relevant to a broad range of audiences. We produce fact sheets for sales associates at brokerage firms, press releases for industry journalists, sales ideas for financial advisors, and annual reports for our funds’ shareholders. We manage sales events and conferences, support community outreach programs, and manage our internal and external websites. We develop campaigns and marketing strategies for different segments within our advisor community.
We research, write, e-mail, advertise, strategize, plan, respond to requests for proposals, tweet, podcast, and concept to keep MFS employees, clients, and partners engaged and informed. We communicate the key elements of the MFS story — our global, collaborative investment, and research platform, innovative history, and disciplined process — to audiences around the world. We need a multi-talented team to support all our communications and sales channels.
Our product team works directly with portfolio managers and research analysts to create new products that support the changing needs of our retail and institutional clients. They also develop the strategic messaging behind our existing products, and assess our position in the highly competitive investment management marketplace. Product specialists provide a direct link among our clients — financial advisors, consultants, professional buyers — and our investment professionals. They are a single point of contact for key distributors in all channels, all markets, and third-party platforms, helping investment professionals understand the objective behind each MFS product and portfolio so they can evaluate the merits on behalf of their clients.
If you have finance, investing, or product development experience, would enjoy providing analytic support to an established investment manager with a history of innovation, and have the skills to act as a dedicated resource for professional advisors and strategic partners, we encourage you to explore opportunities to join the product team.
