Investment 2020 - the future of finance

Investment 20/20


As a leading UK investment firm, we at Columbia Threadneedle Investments are pleased to be a part of Investment 20/20, offering young people their first job in The City through 12-month paid trainee roles.

While technical ability and academic success are important considerations for our trainees, CTI knows that being a part of our global, fast-paced environment also requires broader capabilities such as collaboration and teamwork, effective communication, and an affinity with our core values: Client Focus, Excellence, Integrity, and Respect. We seek to recruit talented school leavers and graduates of all educational backgrounds.


We are currently accepting applications for our 2019 Investment 20/20 programme. Please apply by April 30th, 2019.

About Columbia Threadneedle Investments

Columbia Threadneedle has more than 2000 employees, including over 450 investment professionals working out of 19 countries across the globe. We are in the business of investments, but our clients and their goals are our top priority, whether they invest to build a nest egg, leave a legacy, or retire comfortably.

We are pioneers in the field of responsible investing and have a great track record. At CTI, we were the first European asset managers to disclose our gender diversity data and the first to pledge for gender balance by signing the HM Treasury's Women in Finance Charter.


Employees and trainees of Columbia Threadneedle are encouraged to donate their time and talents to volunteer. They are also proud to work for a company committed to supporting local charity partners that focus on education, art, and sports to engender social change.
