  • Support other analytical needs such as providing content for Advisory Panels, working with index managers to standardize consultation content and respond to client inquiries.
  • Enhance the analytical content of major index methodology consultations.
  • Coordinate with the S&P DJI Research & Design Group when changes to an index are indicated and further research is requested by index committees.

  • Ability to assume responsibility, collaborate across groups and manage multiple projects.
  • Understanding of specific use cases of financial indices as benchmarks or as the bases of financial products.
  • Strong understanding of the impact of different methodologies on both indices and financial portfolios.
