Your path to becoming a Fund Analyst.
Rigorous and requiring hours of commitment, graduates of the program receive familiarity in working with financial statements, and an ability to concisely state and support investment theses. The Analyst Candidate Program runs from October to April and consists of a weekly seminar, readings, exclusive speaker events, and required investment reports.
A combination of case studies, research, theory, and writings paves the way for students to become intelligent investors. With guided learning towards writing concise and well thought out investment reports, the Analyst Candidate Program prepares students for roles in investment research and management.
Admitted students are required to complete all required readings, homework, two investment reports, as well as attend all weekly sessions, speaker events, and annual stock pitch.
High performers may be invited back to be our Fund Analysts, or connected to other opportunities.
