Global Investment Research - Analyst
After graduating from college or university, new analysts are placed into equity, credit, economics, commodities or strategy research teams. This provides them with the opportunity to specialize in a specific area.
What You Would Be Doing
New analysts attend a training program that introduces them to the firm and provides insight into GIR and its relationship with other groups within the firm. Focused training sessions cover essential skills including accounting, valuation, financial modeling and writing.
Once this training is complete, analysts join an industry team and work closely with senior analysts, associates and other team members. Daily responsibilities may include analyzing companies and sectors, building and maintaining models and analyzing data and market trends. Analysts also interact with clients, the sales force and management teams of covered companies.
First year analysts will also have the opportunity to study for the Level 1 Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exam, a valuable, internationally recognized exam within the financial industry.
