The Public Finance Full-Time Analyst Program provides undergraduate students an opportunity to master the analytical, quantitative and interpersonal skills necessary to develop an exciting and rewarding career on Wall Street. Analysts joining Public Finance will participate in a six-week intensive Training Program alongside Sales & Trading Analysts, based in New York. Analysts are then placed directly with a group in Public Finance where opportunities exist in one of the following product areas: Syndicate, Infrastructure, Higher Education, Public Power and Utilities, Housing and Health Care.
Public Finance Analysts participate in an orientation program that covers the Firm’s businesses and the transition from the academic to the corporate world, creating the chance to establish a network throughout the Firm globally. The Analysts then attend divisional training where they learn the core skills required to be successful on the job. The curriculum includes daily market updates, accounting courses, credit risk analysis, business overview speaker sessions, product and technical training and registration preparation. In addition, Public Finance Analysts receive training in municipal finance, municipal bond math, credit derivatives, options and yield curve fundamentals. Analysts have several opportunities to network with peers, mentors and managers through team-building sessions, learning lunches, community service, social events and more.
