We are seeking an experienced Equity Analyst to join our Consumer team within Global Industry Research (GIR). Based in either Boston or London, he/she will be responsible for conducting research and making recommendations on stocks in the global Consumer ecosystem.  This Global Industry Analyst (GIA) will conduct fundamental research that leads to differentiated insights derived from asking innovative questions, anticipating trends, identifying risks and potential disruptions in a rapidly changing industry.   The ideal candidate will have a deep understanding of the industry, sectors, and companies, identify mispricing and valuation discrepancies, make investment recommendations, and then communicate his/her findings to Portfolio Managers globally, who manage long-only and hedge fund portfolios on behalf of our clients.  Over time, we expect the GIA to take on portfolio management responsibilities for his/her industry within the firm's research portfolios.
