Our firm provides a full range of investment banking, sales, trading, research and strategy across the spectrum of equities, fixed income, and foreign exchange, as well as wealth management, in the Americas, Europe and Asia.

Our research analysts use a variety of methodologies and data sources including surveys, industry contacts and public documents, as well as benefiting from collaborations with fellow Jefferies analysts following other industries, geographies and asset classes.

You will join an experienced, established and successful equity research team that is currently expanding coverage across global companies. The research team works with/alongside broader US and Asian research teams.

Key Responsibilities

The key responsibilities are:

  • To support the senior analyst to maintain/build out stock coverage and contribute to the European Capital Goods sector
  • To support the lead analyst in the provision of strong fundamental research allowing us to service institutional investors with sufficient intensity to drive vote capture, and support the interface with colleagues in sales/trading and Investment Bank.
  • Regularly update financial models for all companies under coverage with a focus on earnings season preparation and reviews.
  • Develop unique industry-wide supply/demand models that consider macroeconomic trends as well as industry-specific drivers.

Person Specification

The following skills and experience are required for this role:
  • A strong academic background is expected and some experience with relevant sector end markets will be an advantage, though a more financial academic background will also be considered (or equivalent).
  • You will have experience in detailed financial modelling of companies' financial statements as appropriate for equity research production, including forecasting.
  • Additionally, strong written and inter-personal skills are also required, and the latter is necessary given that the role will involve direct interaction with institutional and corporate clients.
  • Strong Excel skills and more broadly Microsoft Office applications and sourcing data from the internet
  • Ability to perform under pressure and meet time sensitive deadlines, sometimes for extended periods of time
  • Commitment to task and attention to detail
  • Self-starter: must be organised and able to work independently

Desired Experience / Skills
  • Previous experience either as a research analyst or in the industrials sector is advantageous.
