The Analyst Program begins in mid-July with direct placement on a desk within Fixed Income & Commodities. With a flat structure and an open trading floor, the Analyst Program includes the opportunity to collaborate and learn from experienced professionals and to participate in practical workshops, a structured mentor-and-buddy program and organised social events.
Analysts begin with the Firmwide Institutional Securities training program in London with peers from Institutional Equity, Investment Banking, Global Capital Markets, Equity Research, Investment Management and Private Wealth Management. The training covers financial modelling and capital markets, and enables Analysts to gain a broad understanding of each business in the Institutional Securities Group. Analysts then undertake the Sales & Trading specific training, which generally consists of intensive IT training, Excel and desk-specific applications, practical skills sessions, regulatory examinations and FCA preparation.
