He/she will ensure there is clear direction and sufficient resources for each item and will also assist with completing these requests.
The Marketing Specialist will work closely with various functional teams (marketing, investor relations, investments, operations, and compliance). The ideal candidate will be able to “connect the dots” between client needs, market trends, and business goals in order to generate ideas and, ultimately, compelling marketing materials.
