Product Manager

The ambition of Product Management is to be the best products team in Europe, being ahead of the competition, adding value to our stakeholders and clients, having a profitable, effective and high quality product range, getting things done proactively, delivering on our promises, working hard, have respect and trust, daring to make mistakes and learning from them, and finally, having fun in what we do and how we do it.
The Product Management team’s focus is on building successful multi-client propositions by growth of existing investment strategies via new products, on product life cycle management and on the key maintenance of the existing product line-up and fund processes. The team consists of Product Managers specializing in depth in equity, fixed income or multi-asset, project management and a dedicated team for the technical and life cycle aspects of product management.
The Product Life Cycle Management team (PLCM) focusses on the product range of today, product data, product changes and optimization, operational excellence and act as the first point of contact for all questions on the product range. The main focus of the team is on the Luxembourg and Dutch product range, but expanding strongly to other regions as well. PLCM is working closely together with the rest of Product Management, the investment teams and Sales Offices worldwide.

Within PLCM we are looking for an experienced Product Manager whose main responsibilities will center around the Luxembourg based legal structures.

  • identification of technical product trends and opportunities;
  • identification of regulation and assessment of the impact on the product range;
  • liaise with the Luxembourg legal advisor and regulator where necessary.

The role will include overall responsibility for the Luxembourg prospectuses, participation on behalf of the Product Management department in cross departmental projects and general technical product projects. To do so, the Product Manager makes use of strong project-management and personal skills to mobilize the appropriate resources and is comfortable working in a multi-discipline and international environment at all levels of the organization. You have the ability to form an independent opinion and convince other team members and the organization. You like being challenged and you like to challenge your colleagues to get the best results. You bring (new) knowledge and new insights to the table. You are able to translate complex matters into clear results and realize them under high pressure.
