About the Intelligence Team - Asia Team:
Intelligence Analysts at Point72 identify, monitor, and assess compliance risk. We support senior management by providing strategic assessments, actionable recommendations and real-time escalations. Intelligence Analysts work as part of a team-we collaborate with colleagues, produce short- and long-term written assessments, and brief senior leaders. We are tasked with conveying complex, evidence-based insights in writing and briefings, often times working with fragmentary or partial information. We seek to understand the big picture so that we can explain its significance to senior management. Intelligence also monitors employee activity for evidence of violations of applicable federal securities laws, internal compliance policies and procedures, and relevant rules and regulations enforced by the SEC, FINRA, and other organizations.

As an Intelligence Analyst on the Asia Team at Point72 you will:
  • Define intelligence questions and issues clearly, and appropriately scope research and projects
  • Produce sophisticated and well-written analysis that provides insight, not simply information
  • Monitor employee communications for potential violations of relevant laws, rules, regulations, and policies
  • Analyze employee trading activity
  • Innovate and design in-house Asian language models and tools for implementation by the team
  • Use regional/area knowledge and language skills to inform analysis and communicate with employees in Hong Kong and Singapore

Intelligence Analysts join Point72 from a wide-range of academic and professional backgrounds; many have prior experience working in the US Intelligence Community, but some join soon after completing graduate or professional school. You should be excited and able to quickly learn about the industry, but no prior experience in finance is required. This position requires professional fluency in Chinese.
To succeed as an Intelligence Analyst at Point72, you must embody the following values:
  • Teamwork: we collaborate and support each other to accomplish our goals. We push each other to be better because we are only as strong as our weakest member.
  • Innovation & Excellence: we don't settle and we don't believe in "good enough". We bring our best effort every day and are committed to constant improvement.
  • Integrity: we demonstrate the highest standards of ethics and integrity. Our work is truthful, direct, and unbiased. We protect sensitive and confidential information and exercise discretion in all aspects of our work.
  • Courage: we are not afraid to fail. We accomplish difficult and high-stakes work in an environment with a high degree of uncertainty. We may sometimes be wrong, but we learn from our mistakes and improve.
  • Curiosity: we always ask "why"? We don't accept the first answer or the easy answer; our goal is to understand. We don't just report information; we put information into context and provide insight and analysis. We solve puzzles even when we don't have all the pieces.
You also need:
  • Professional fluency in Chinese language, particularly reading skills
  • Master's degree, or bachelor's degree with 1-3 years of professional experience, in East Asian Studies or related field
  • Deep regional or functional expertise including travel or residency in China or the region.
  • Experience working with different technology applications or data analytics tools such as MS Excel, Tableau, Stata, R, or Analyst Notebook
  • Ability to think critically, analyze information, and provide clear and concise findings
  • Interest in the Financial Industry
  • Excellent interpersonal and written and verbal communication skills
We take care of our people
We invest in our people, their careers, their health, and their well-being. We want you to concentrate on success and leave the rest to us. When you work here, we provide:
  • Fully-paid health care benefits
  • Generous parental and family leave policies
