Who we are: New Street Research is the preeminent global research and analysis firm focused on the Communications Services sector. We have offices in New York, London and Singapore. The team is comprised of top-ranked analysts that led teams at JPMorgan, UBS, Credit Suisse, and Merrill Lynch in the US, Europe, Asia and emerging markets.
We left investment banks to found New Street because we knew that we could do research better if we were independent; we knew we could innovate; we knew we could create a product that was substantially more valuable than anything coming out of investment banks; we wanted to be and work with entrepreneurs. We also knew we would have more fun if we used our knowledge, skills and relationships to do more than just research.
What we do: Our primary business is advising institutional investors where to invest in the Communications Services sector; however, when we are at our best we are combining intellect and industry knowledge to help shape the industry we cover. We solve problems for investors, telecom & cable companies, regulatory agencies and other industry participants ranging from investment decisions, capital raising, capital deployment, strategy and policy.
What you will learn: First and foremost you will hone your problem solving and analytical capabilities. You will learn to build frameworks to dissect, explain and solve complex problems. These skills will be invaluable wherever you go next, whether it is in research, public market investing, private equity, consulting, banking, or industry. You will work directly with senior analysts (no layers). You will debate strategy with the CEOs and CFOs of some of the largest companies in the world. You will debate investment ideas with the largest and most successful investors in the world. You will be expected to learn fast and put yourself in a position to manage projects independently from the start.
Must have: Raw smarts; intellectual curiosity; strong problem solving skills; eloquence; the ability to work fast and with a cool head under pressure; facility with excel.
Nice to have: Knowledge of the telecom, cable and media sectors; strong financial modeling skills; prior consulting, investment banking, investing or equity research experience.
