  • A commitment to the highest ethical standards
  • Curiosity and a desire to constantly deepen expertise
  • Creative thinking and an ability to see connections others miss

What does an investment analyst do?

Since 2015, we have been teaching critical thinkers to apply their skills to the market through programs centered around academics, apprenticeship, and mentorship. As an investment analyst, you’ll work closely with your portfolio manager and team to develop a deep understanding of companies across industries and around the world. As you learn to understand what drives stock prices, you’ll try to predict changes before they happen and see your results in real time.

 

“I was a history major, and I was really drawn to the research aspect of the analyst role. When you study history, everything’s static. When you research companies, it’s dynamic and you see changes every single day. You’re constantly trying to solve a new puzzle with verifiable solutions, rather than theorizing on what might have been.”

Continuing Your Career at Point72

After successfully graduating from the Point72 Academy full-time program, you’ll earn the opportunity to join a long/short equity investing team and an internal network of Point72 Academy alums. As an analyst, you’ll have opportunities to continue to grow as you learn from your PM, senior leadership, and dedicated skill development programs.

“What’s great about being an analyst here is that the learning never stops. Every day is a dialogue with your PM, pitching ideas and hearing their feedback. And it’s not just your PM—there are so many resources and investment professionals to learn from. It’s been valuable to be able to follow my Point72 Academy experience by hearing so many different processes and perspectives on being an investor.”
