Equity Research

You will need to continuously stay up to date on a wide variety of macroeconomic trends, market forecasts and financial news - this allows you to identify attractive investment opportunities. Once an opportunity is identified, you form an investment thesis and conduct thorough qualitative and quantitative research to evaluate the potential of the investment.

Monitoring market fluctuations

Financial Analysis

You will use various financial analysis methods to uncover the company's actual value. You will then visualise these findings and data to inform better investment decisions. The financial analysis techniques will cover both fundamental and technical analysis.

Deliver & Monitor A Portfolio

Based on the equity research and financial analysis on the investment opportunity, you will pitch a recommendation on the company. After appropriate evaluation, this will be included in your team portfolio. You will then monitor the performance of your team's portfolio and share any findings and indicators to potentially update the course of action of the firm.
