Advantus values a collaborative environment, demonstrated by our daily morning meeting where a cross-functional team of portfolio managers, analysts, traders, and client service professionals discuss current positions and market dynamics.

Based in St. Paul, MN, Advantus has over 100 employees. We're small enough to be nimble, yet large enough to focus on best-execution in investments for our clients.
