The Financial Analyst needs to have significant initiative and the ability to think creatively to “get to the right sources”. They will ultimately have a lot of responsibility in shaping the output of many of the research products created and will work closely with all team members including Managing Directors on a frequent basis. The ideal candidate should be comfortable with data accumulation through various methods (utilizing databases, google searches, etc.), interpreting and presenting data, synthesizing research findings into concise reports / summaries, etc. based on above.

The preferred candidate should also have either work or educational experience in elementary financial analysis e.g. worked as an analyst, or accountant or studied financial management / analysis.

The candidate must thrive as a self-starter, as they will have tremendous autonomy and they should be 100% comfortable with working remotely.
