First Republic Investment Management (FRIM) is an SEC-Registered Investment Adviser (RIA) owned by First Republic Bank. We work exclusively with high net worth clients. Typical clients include entrepreneurs, corporate executives, non-profits, and partners in venture capital, private equity, real estate, and law. Our team consists of 14 individuals, including two Wealth Managers and 12 supporting team members. The Associate will work closely with a Senior Associate and a Vice President, as well as both Wealth Managers, to support our team’s client relationships.

 

We are looking for a highly motivated professional to join our Palo Alto-based team as an Associate. The Associate will work closely with the existing team to manage important elements of the client relationship.

  • Interact with clients, supporting all aspects of their servicing needs related to the management of their relationship, researching client inquiries and managing follow up communication and materials
  • Enter trades on behalf of the client, either alone or at the direction of another team member
  • Construct client performance and asset allocation reports along with recommended portfolio changes
