Fundamental Research Analyst
Research analysts are vital to the firm’s fundamental investing groups, and we’re looking for talented individuals with a unique perspective to join our team. Candidates may have a passion for investing, but they may also be newcomers to the field and simply interested in tackling complex, multifaceted problems.
Research analysts will be placed in one of three groups for the summer (Fundamental Equities, Credit Opportunities, or Asset-Backed Securities), where they will research, analyze, and perform due diligence on potential investments, all while gaining exposure to live deals as they progress.
What we're looking for
- A demonstrated aptitude for financial analysis is a plus, as are excellent communication skills and previous internship experience at an investment bank, alternative asset manager, or long-only manager, though time spent working in finance is only one of many paths that can lead to an internship with us.
- Successful interns in this role will not only analyze new investment ideas but will also contribute ideas of their own.
