Research

Research
Research is an ideas factory. This is the team that digs deeper into everything that affects the world’s financial markets.
  • Credit Research

    Credit Research is ideal for analytical thinkers with the curiosity to dig further into financial statements, credit agreements and indentures. The team sits on the corporate credit trading floor, just rows away from where the trade execution occurs. It’s a fast-paced operation that’s organized into four primary groups: high yield, investment grade, emerging markets and strategy.

    Whichever group you work in, you’ll have daily meetings with Sales and Trading colleagues, where you’ll deliver a succinct summary of what to discuss with clients throughout the day. You’ll also talk to clients daily yourself, giving them our views on a credit or sector, and how valuations might be affected by specific events.     

  • Equity Research

    This award-winning team provides fundamental research on nearly 1,700 companies across the Americas and Europe. Our analysts create actionable investment ideas based on independent, objective, primary research.  They deliver in-depth expertise by identifying industry trends and individual company inflection points.  Our team interacts with institutional money managers, corporate executives, industry experts, as well as our internal partners across Markets, Banking and Research.

    The ability to articulate and present succinct, accurate, insightful messages is crucial. You’ll learn to react swiftly to market movements and provide quick but thorough analysis on how industry trends or geopolitical movements may affect the industry or specific companies you cover.    

  • Macro Research

    The Macro Research team is diverse. It includes analysts who develop and present the Barclays Research view on economies, bond markets and commodities, as well as strategists who build recommendations based on these views. The individuals in Macro Research come from many different academic backgrounds, but most have some grounding in economics.

    Compared with the Equity or Credit Research teams, Macro Research is a small group. But the views they develop are inputs for a wide variety of both internal clients (Sales, Trading, and other parts of research) and external clients. The type of individual who thrives in Macro Research is therefore someone who gets excited about digging into the nuance of data and developing insights, but should also be at ease formulating a compelling story about their view and communicating this in written work, graphics, and presentations.
