Research areas

Research areas
  • Credit Research

    The Credit Research team is ideal for analytical thinkers who enjoy a dynamic, fast-paced environment. Sitting on the corporate credit trading floor, the team is organised into four primary groups: High Yield, Investment Grade, Emerging Markets and Strategy. Our analysts undertake in-depth, fundamental analysis on companies around the world, looking at industry trends and company-specific factors. From there, the team’s analysis is translated into actionable trade ideas.

    You’ll learn to analyse market movements and news flow, and then provide a comprehensive view on their impact on the companies you cover.

  • Equity Research

    This award-winning team provides fundamental research on over 1,500 companies across the Americas and Europe. Our analysts create actionable investment ideas based on independent, objective, primary research. They provide in-depth expertise by identifying industry trends and individual company inflection points. And they interact with institutional money managers, corporate executives, industry experts, as well as our internal partners across Markets, Banking, Research and Quantitative Analytics.

    Articulating and presenting accurate, insightful messages is crucial here. 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. We’ve got analysts who develop and present the Barclays research view on economies, bond markets and commodities. And then there are strategists who build recommendations based on these views. The people here come from many different academic backgrounds, but most have some grounding in economics.

    Macro Research is a small group, but the views they develop are inputs for a wide variety of both internal clients and external clients. Who thrives here? Someone who gets excited about digging into the nuance of data and developing insights. Someone who’s at ease formulating a compelling story about their view and communicating this in written work, graphics and presentations.
