Careers

A firm of thoughtful, caring, passionate colleagues

GMO's talented people around the globe are our greatest asset and make a positive difference for our clients

An exceptional environment in which to build a career

  • For over 40 years, GMO has invested on behalf of a broad range of institutions, wealth managers, and families.
  • We have forged innovative investment strategies, become known across our industry for our thought leadership, and dedicated ourselves to helping our many clients fulfill their missions and better serve their constituents.
  • Privately owned, GMO is free from the external demands of public ownership or the competing priorities of a parent company. This independence allows our investment teams to bring the discipline and patience needed to maintain long-term views with conviction and allows us to provide our clients with candid, straightforward advice. It also enables us to invest in the infrastructure and talent needed to achieve our goals.
  • We place considerable value upon individual ideas and contributions. Our culture is open, inclusive, and encouraging of collaboration and debate. We believe that good ideas come from everyone within our firm.
  • We believe that a diverse team and an inclusive environment create the best results, so we recruit from the broadest possible talent pool, globally. Different backgrounds, experiences, and ideas all come together to produce a firm-wide diversity of thought and better solutions for our clients.

An unwavering commitment to our employees

  • We invest in our people, across all career stages, with the same long-term view that we bring to investing on behalf of our clients. We offer learning and development opportunities for all employees and seek to foster an environment that encourages and supports continuous growth.
  • We offer competitive compensation and benefits, and focus on helping our employees be fulfilled and balanced at work and at home.
  • We actively contribute to our communities, both as a firm and in supporting our employees' individual interests.
  • GMO is passionate about combating the impacts of climate change and sponsors many company-wide initiatives to reduce our environmental impact. Programs range from using recycled paper and composting our coffee grounds to making an annual donation to offset the carbon produced by our employees' travel.
