An asset manager is responsible for managing, monitoring and keeping track of the many and varied assets owned by a company.
Salaries typically depend on location, employer and level of responsibility. Salaries and career options improve with chartered status.
While some asset managers achieve this position through industry experience, a career in asset management today will generally require a degree or equivalent in a subject such as Building and Construction, or associated, relevant subjects such as Business Studies, Finance, Statistics or Accounting.
Many also go on to undertake further study as part of a Masters degree, or by acquiring additional skills though training initiatives such as the Endorsed Training Scheme (ETS) supported by the Institute of Asset Management (IAM).
