Point72 Academy Hosts Inaugural Spring Insight Program in London

April 2024

Point72 Academy was thrilled to recently host its inaugural Spring Insight Program in London for eight university students. This year’s program was an in-person, one-week immersion experience for students planning to graduate in 2026 who were eager to learn more about our business and firm culture. Our goal was to increase students’ awareness and access to a career in investing.

Over the course of five days in our London office, participants learned from our Academy staff and analyst coaches about the role of a Point72 investment analyst, and participated in a series of training sessions on how to critically evaluate stocks. The group also heard from Jean Horenstein, Operating Officer for Investment Professional Development (IPD), and got to know our Head of UK, Will Tovey, over lunch.

“The Spring Insight Program is a great opportunity for ambitious students to gain a real-world understanding of our business and culture at Point72. It was rewarding to see all the students develop a strong understanding of financial markets and stock picking over the course of the week, while at the same time make lasting connections. We look forward to more Academy accelerator programs as part of our commitment to developing the next generation of talent at Point72.” – Jean Horenstein

Throughout the program, participants were asked to evaluate a single stock. At the end of the week, they then presented pitches and received feedback from Jean; Sam Elsokari, an Analyst Coach who works with our EMEA Long/Short analysts; and Alice Owen, a London-based Program Specialist on our Investment Professional Development team. The group also met with members of our Long/Short Equity business, including analysts and senior management, to learn about the different ways analysts have shaped their careers at Point72.

We’d like to thank everyone involved for a great week! We look forward to welcoming a new class in 2025 and hosting similar Insight Programs later this year in the U.S. and Japan (applications still open here).
