Business Development / Relationship Management, Investments
The Shareholder Services team is responsible for shareholder account servicing and oversight of the transfer agents for the Dodge & Cox Funds (40 Act) and The Dodge & Cox Worldwide Funds (UCITS). The team also works closely with the Client Service team to build relationships with the Firm’s clients and the advisors who guide them.
The Intermediary Relationship Associate will join the Shareholder Services team and support the Intermediary Relationship Manager with efforts related to servicing and overseeing intermediaries (broker-dealers, bank/trust companies, registered investment advisors, clearing firms, and record keepers) that distribute the Dodge & Cox Funds and provide services to Fund shareholders. The Associate will serve as a primary day-to-day contact for internal stakeholders (e.g. Client Service, Legal, Compliance, and Fund Accounting) for operational intermediary matters, secondary contact for external stakeholders (e.g. intermediaries, transfer agents, Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation) for escalations, and will partner with the Intermediary Relationship Manager on related projects.
The Associate is expected to develop a strong working knowledge of the Firm’s largest intermediary relationships and investment strategies. As the Associate gains more experience, he/she may take on greater responsibility and autonomy servicing intermediary relationships in coordination with the Intermediary Relationship Manager.
