With more than 300 employees who manage assets of more than EUR 71.10bn March 2021, our organisation is lean, efficient, and dynamic. Our flat hierarchies provide a lot of space to develop especially to proactive employees.

The Investment Division constitutes the core of Erste Asset Management. In it, investment solutions are developed and managed across the various asset classes such as fixed income, equities, multi asset management, and responsible investments. The Investment Division is supported by our Back Office, which is in charge of the administrative aspects of our funds and provides its services from the departments of Tax and Fund Reporting, Investment Operations, and Fund Operations. Risk Management is responsible for measuring and controlling all product-specific risks in investment funds and portfolios. Our Sales departments are split into Institutional Sales (International and Austria) and Retail Sales Austria. While investment solutions for domestic and international clients such as pension funds, insurance companies, and groups fall within the perimeter of Institutional Sales, Retail Sales is responsible for the comprehensive advisory of all Austrian retail sales partners. Our control functions Compliance, Internal Audit, and Legal ensure the correct procedures in the respective operating area, both internally and externally.

Internship at Erste AM

Theresa Traxler, summer intern

Theresa Traxler, Insights from a young employee

Theresa, what did you especially like about your experience at Erste AM?

As part of my summer internship at Erste Asset Management, I had the unique opportunity to take part in the development of a company-wide macro outlook under consideration of respective implications on the asset allocation. In this context, the Investment Day serves as a platform for knowledge exchange and discussion in order to broaden our perspective and learn. It will be followed by further research in the future, resulting in our own EAM view 2030.

What do you think are the most important things you can take from your internship?

As a new employee, I particularly appreciate being involved in important issues right from the beginning. Being able to learn from my experienced colleagues, as well as external speakers, is a huge benefit for the start of my career in Finance. It helps me to understand the importance of certain macroeconomic drivers with regard to our strategic asset allocation. From the event I particularly remember one thing our CEO Heinz Bednar mentioned: “Our objective is to add intelligence to what we do and allow for creativity to develop ideas and new products.”

This sentence perfectly summarizes the whole event and my experience. It acts as an enabler for decision making based on profound research and open discussions. In fast-moving times with many challenges, it is more important than ever to stay informed and encourage creative exchange.

Our values as employer – Erste Group

As modern employer we know that it is not money what provides our employees with a deep sense of satisfaction, but a meaningful task.
To know that one is embedded in an open, competent team, that one is working at the cutting edge of banking, and that one can actively and constructively shape one’s own development while at the same time doing good for society.

 

Earning money can have a deeper meaning…

… an open corporate culture

Earning money can have a deeper meaning when the focus is on people. When you are treated with respect and are accepted as human being with all your strengths and weaknesses. When you like going to work and the atmosphere and the team spirit are good and you get on with your colleagues. And when what you do – i.e. your job as such – is interesting and satisfying, is needed by someone and makes a difference.
 

… create your own career

Earning money can have a deeper meaning when you take decisions, determine the direction your development takes and the course of your career, and have control over things. When you have a perspective in your career, when you can develop from a personal and professional point of view, when your job offers you ongoing training and new challenges and experiences.


… contribute to society

Earning money can have a deeper meaning when you work for an employer who assumes responsibility, is socially active, and whom you can be proud of. When your work contributes to society. And when you can also affect positive change on the back of honorary activities via your employer.

Erste Campus – Erste Group’s hotspot of cooperation

Erste Campus symbolises the new corporate culture: a central location for about 4,500 employees of Erste Group and its subsidiaries, who for the first time in corporate history are united under one (HQ) roof.

“It is our goal to create a work environment where our employees can cooperate and jointly develop ideas in a simple manner across organisational structures.”

Andreas Treichl, former CEO Erste Group

 

“The vision for Erste Campus is based on an identity-creating, transparent architecture that is open to the urban space and in touch with nature. It contributes to the revival and upgrade of the environment and creates optimal workplaces for all employees.”
