Managing Partner
We are working with one of Europe’s leading equity investment management firms to source two high-potential Junior Analysts who are interested in gaining experience in short selling. This is a hugely interesting opportunity for someone in the early stages of their career to work with highly talented investors in a thoughtful and collaborative environment.

Previous short selling experience is not required however an active interest in short selling, experience in detailed financial analysis, or having undertaken personal research into the field would all be advantageous.

We are keen to hear from applicants principally from two backgrounds:

1) Equity research: The ideal profile will have 2-4 years’ experience from another investment management firm (long-only or long/short) or a high-quality sell-side organisation.

2) Accounting: 3+ years' experience in professional services (transactions, audit, etc).

Candidates must either have completed a chartered accountancy course or have passed at least Level 2 of the CFA examinations.

We are open to a wide range of career backgrounds and sector specialisms, but broad awareness of current affairs and the stock market is vital.

It is essential that you can demonstrate:

  • A strong academic profile, with a minimum 2:1 (or equivalent) at degree level.
  • A demonstrable interest in investing and financial markets.
  • A desire to learn and progress a career in investing.
  • An ability to read and interpret financial statements.
  • Knowledge of valuation methods.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Self-awareness and an ability to learn from mistakes.

Our client is a highly transparent organisation that are committed to their people, and have excelled at developing talent in-house, with an extremely strong retention rate. There is a very flat organisational structure, with a challenging but supportive environment, and a focus on continuous improvement and learning from mistakes.

This is a unique opportunity with rapid progression available to those who learn and develop quickly.

Our client fosters a diverse and inclusive workplace, so if you’re excited about this role but your experience doesn’t align perfectly, we encourage you to apply anyway.
