A Swiss long-only asset manager is looking for a junior equity analyst to be responsible for our financial models in our public company shareholdings. You will be reporting to the Senior Analyst/Head of research and work alongside our junior analyst team. You will be responsible for researching investment ideas as well as updating forecasts as new information comes in (typically a quarterly release or an acquisition) to ensure that we have a good understanding of the financial drivers and the potential for positive and negative earnings surprises over the coming 12 months. You are expected to have strong modelling skills and to be able to think independently.
Unlike many Analyst positions your focus will be on understanding the business drivers and potential areas of weakness of strength, not in generating new investment ideas. You need to be genuinely passionate about Excel modelling and understanding every financial aspect of different business models. You need to be able to analyse and understand a broad breadth of industries, although we tend to avoid businesses which are too complex or are driven by macro factors that are difficult to forecast. Therefore we are not looking for a particular industry expertise, but instead someone who has good understanding of what kind of business models are attractive and how these can be modelled and analysed to ensure we understand how the business is truly performing.
You will be working with a small team (<10 individuals) that allows everyone to contribute. We believe that remote working is more effective in combination with more intensive get togethers. We can accommodate anyone to work from anywhere in Europe, including part-time.
If you are a Master student currently studying and looking to gain real world experience as a working student, we encourage you to apply. Provided individual performance is high, we will be happy to make you an offer as a permanent Analyst once you completed your study and you have worked with us as a working student for several months.
If you're interested in this opportunity, forward your CV and an example Excel forecast that you have built of a company that you believe has an attractive business model, which would form the basis for a discussion of your analytical process.
If you do not have an example you can submit, we will be happy to give you a company name for a sample analysis you can work on.
