Investment Underwriters

Work Environment

Investment underwriters work in corporate offices in banks and financial institutions. They work full time, usually 40 hours per week, with hours sometimes extending into the evenings or weekends to meet project deadlines. Much of the work day is spent on the computer, on the telephone, and in meetings. Some travel is required to visit clients and companies. The work environment is competitive and stressful, particularly because large amounts of money are often involved and any mistakes that are made can have big consequences. Successful investment underwriters are decisive, even tempered, and able to establish a good work/life balance.
