Job Description:

BlackRock's Large Cap Growth team seeks a Research Analyst/Associate who will be responsible for conducting fundamental research and contributing to the investment process for BlackRock's Fundamental Large Cap Growth products reporting into the Director of Research.

The Large Cap Growth team manages approximately $19 billion in growth focused equity portfolios. The team focuses on business models that have the potential for high returns on invested capital, high free cash flow conversion of net income and opportunities to replicate their success globally. Cornerstone to the team's approach is building portfolios around a blend of three types of growth stocks:
  • Superior - industry leaders taking share with long-term persistent advantages
  • Durable - sustainable business models more mature in their life cycle that exhibit sustainable margin improvements or significant return of cash to shareholders
  • Periodic - businesses that thrive in expanding economies, but where margins are volatile

The team's bottom-up, fundamentally based process seeks to deliver consistency of returns and preservation of capital over the long term investing for earnings strength more than exploiting benchmark or market pricing anomalies.

Responsibilities:
  • Conduct company research - including financial analysis, due diligence on industry trends, company management and strategies.
  • Meet with management teams to build stronger understanding of underlying industry, competitive dynamics, business drivers, and strategic direction. Attend industry conferences.
  • Present to senior team members why the consensus is incorrect on the duration of growth or a best in class business model. Make stock specific recommendations.
  • Build and update financial and valuation models, synthesize and assess financial, industry data and conduct primary research through industry sources.
  • Articulate investment theses in both formal presentations and more informal discussions and communicate with investment professionals throughout the firm

Qualifications:
  • Bachelor's Degree and currently pursuing MBA; CFA preferred.
  • Outstanding analytical and organizational skills.
  • Passion for fundamental investing.
  • Ability to synthesize and communicate large amounts of information in succinct manner.
  • Proficiency with Microsoft Excel and some modeling experience.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills.
