The Strategy & Planning Marketing Associate, Indexes, is aligned to the FTSE Russell business and sits within the Marketing Strategy and Planning function in the Marketing & Communications organization at LSEG. This organization, led by our Chief Marketing Officer, acts as a strategic partner to the LSEG business, powering commercial value through an insight led approach that maximizes the impact of our investment and our relevance in the market.

The Marketing Strategy and Planning function is the critical link between Business Strategy and Product, as well as Sales and Account Management to ensure all marketing activities are directly aligned to FTSE Russell's business priorities.

Marketing Strategy: Be the voice of our marketplace, and our customers

  • Develop an understanding of the various index series' construction methodologies and use cases, as well as their competitive landscape
  • Develop a deep understanding of the client base, their challenges, needs, and associated commercial opportunities
  • Contribute to the definition of the target audience for FTSE Russell's equity indexes, based on insights and analytics, proposition strategy, and specific index use case

  • Work with stakeholders in our Product, Sales, and Research teams to ensure marketing is aligned with and supportive of business the agenda, growth priorities, and our product launch process

  • Support the development of the messaging and positioning of our index solutions, including key proof points and USPs in order to develop compelling and differentiated value propositions
  • Support the creation of the Content Strategy considering the full buyer and influencer journey from Interest and Exposure to Purchase

Marketing Planning: Translate strategy into meaningful opportunity
  • Support and provide direction to the Marketing team responsible for developing a holistic and individual customer segment marketing plan for the business. This will include marketing partners from the Activation, Regional, Digital, PR, Events, ABM, and Content Marketing teams.
  • Work with the Senior Marketing Managers, Strategy and Planning, to propose marketing campaigns that will retain and grow FTSE Russell's business - driving awareness, interest, leads, opportunities and sales
  • Support the Senior Marketing Managers, Strategy and Planning, to develop Briefs for marketing campaigns including market situation, themes, key messaging including differentiators and proof points, KPIs and recommended channels to market
  • Work across all of the other Marketing and Communications functions to ensure the production of compelling campaign content and the activation of campaigns in markets globally
  • Track and measure budgets and campaign performance against KPIs set and report back to stakeholders on progress, performance, suggestions for future initiatives

In addition, we would expect this person to:
  • Infuse the LSEG brand into everything we do. Ensure brand activation is clearly integrated into message strategy and architecture, product design, value proposition and personas for core customer segments.
  • KPIs: Define the expectation of how marketing will drive results. Partner closely with the Customer Insight and Analytics team to set clear standards and reporting of Marketing ROI aligned to the Business. Assess performance quarterly against targets. Course correct based on learning as necessary.
  • Be a strong and effective communicator and collaborator. This person will need to be able to work across the breadth of our business and quickly understand what requirements are and how we mobilize teams to deploy marketing campaigns that deliver results.

Skills and experience
  • Experience in marketing into the financial markets community, with a particular emphasis on the Asset Management and Asset Owner segments would be beneficial
  • Experience of Product or Solutions marketing
  • Experience having worked with business and product teams to articulate compelling value propositions to customers and prospects
  • An understanding of indexes and their application would be advantageous

  • Good relationship management skills to satisfy a wide range of internal and external stakeholders with conflicting priorities
  • Demonstrate excellent time-management and multi-tasking abilities, and be able to independently meet deadlines, including internal check-ins.
