Description
Asset management is the management of a client's investments by a financial services company. The company (usually an investment bank) will invest on behalf of its clients and give them access to a wide range of traditional and alternative products that would not be to the average investor. Here is the interesting part: all this management produces a lot of documentation (factsheets, prospectuses, reports, press realeases, website content...) that must be delivered to the clients in their own language (it is mandatory for factsheets and prospectuses). This kind of translations are ordered by high-paying and reliable clients and they tend to be large projects.
