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.

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.

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.
