Equity Research is the art of turning information into insight. Working alongside experts in our industry-leading team, you’ll learn how to help internal and external clients make informed investment decisions. You’ll support innovative offerings, while bringing your own incisive thinking to the table.
What to expect
Expect real responsibility. Your experience will begin with seven weeks of intensive training covering the core knowledge and skills you’ll need to make a strong start. After this, you’ll go straight into a specific sector team, working with a Senior Analyst and contributing insights and ideas to investment theses and reports. In time, you’ll find yourself presenting your ideas to colleagues as well as clients. Your responsibilities may include:
- Analyzing macro industry trends and company financials
- Gathering, synthesizing and interpreting data from publications and other sources
- Writing analyses
- Building financial models and industry databases
- Developing and delivering marketing materials for clients
