RCIF Fund Analysts manage RCIF's private fund on behalf of investors. Alongside our President and VP Research, they are responsible for conducting in-depth research and discussing investment ideas during weekly meetings.  Those who are offered a position on the team will have the opportunity to improve their investment skills with a group of like-minded passionate students, and leverage RCIF's extensive alumni network who have experience ranging from Buy-side roles, to consultancy and running their own fund

Fund Analysts are accepted on a rolling basis and require very strong analytical skills, comfort with financial statement analysis, and a passion for value investing.
