Life at Newton
Newton is a stimulating and rewarding place to work, which is reflected in the success we have had in retaining our investment personnel.
Zamanur Shah, applications support analyst: I was incredibly nervous at first, but what I found very quickly was that everyone in Newton is incredibly friendly. If I change my career path in the future I will always have this experience that I can fall back on.
Rorie Evans, client director: So as I was going through my resettlement I heard about the returning military programme that BNY Mellon runs, and so applied to it and was fortunate enough to get a position on it. I’m studying for the CFA, which, I have to say, Newton have been very supportive with; they’re paying for me to do it and giving me some time off to do it as well which is great.
Lottie Meggitt, responsible investment analyst: So I started rowing for Cambridge University in the first year of Newton’s sponsorship of the Boat Races, and this was the first year that the women had equal funding. The game completely changed for women. Because of that, because I spent two years of my life, wearing Newton Investment Management on most of my clothes, I felt very positively about Newton because of that. Newton have been very, very supportive when it comes to development and they’re willing to give you the flexibility.
Hanneke Smits, chief executive officer: Making investments on behalf of clients is very, very difficult, and in particular doing it well, and to that extent, it’s very important that we have diversity of thought, and the simplest way to achieve that is through hiring people from diverse backgrounds.

Vocational Trainee Programme
At Newton we are committed to the development of talented school leavers – the Newton Vocational Trainee Programme has been in place since 2012 and provides bright and determined A level students the opportunity to work at a global investment management firm whilst continuing in higher education.
As well as offering a challenging and rewarding start to their career, Newton will fund a two year (part time) HND Accounting and Finance course at the European College of Business Management for each trainee. Successful HND graduates will then be offered the chance to continue on the Programme in order to convert their qualification to a BA Hons Degree in Business Studies.
The benefits of the Programme are clear – trainees can begin building their career in the finance industry while still progressing academically and without the burden of college fees – and Newton can recruit competent young people that are motivated and hardworking, and whose age and educational backgrounds help to bring diversity of thought into the firm.
There are currently 11 trainees at Newton, at various stages of the Programme. They are working in a wide variety of departments within including those supporting the investment process, relationship management of Newton clients and investment operations, plus desktop support roles within the technology team. All of the six BA graduates each achieved at least a 2:1 BA Hons degree in Business and Finance – and all but one of these individuals remain at Newton and are progressing in their chosen career path within the firm.
