Who we're looking for

Portfolio Managers in Point72 LaunchPoint share certain characteristics: a passion for the markets, deep domain expertise, and a desire to be an entrepreneurial investor while adhering to the highest ethical standards.

  • Senior analysts and sector heads with demonstrated success
  • Multi-manager associate portfolio managers looking for long-term opportunity
  • Single managers who want to leverage our resources to scale
  • Top-performing Point72 analysts ready to make the jump to PM

Customized to your process

We act as a business incubator, tailored to enhance your individual strengths, fill any gaps in your process, and lay a strong foundation for your career here.

“I’d been an analyst for 13 years, six at Point72, and I felt like I had a good process and depth in my coverage. When I was entering the program, all of the questions I was being asked were about how to play to my strengths: What kind of business do you want to run? What sort of team? What tools do you need? How can we support your success? The leaders here have built their own portfolio manager businesses, taken risk in the market, and seen ups and downs. They know different styles can succeed and really want to underwrite your growth.”

Invested in your success

We provide you with time, support, and capital so you can focus on building your business – and our Firm leadership makes every effort to help enable your success.

"We spend a lot of time developing our talent and giving them the resources they need to best adapt and grow in their careers. I started my career in Point72 LaunchPoint which was a fantastic experience and since then, I’ve seen three of my own analysts become PMs here. A lot of the best practices that I continue today and impart on my team were learned while I was in the program. It’s a great opportunity to hone your skills and test your limits while building your business.”
