We are seeking an experienced Equity Analyst to join our Consumer team within Global Industry Research (GIR). The ideal candidate will be responsible for conducting research and making recommendations on stocks in the global Consumer Discretionary and Staples ecosystem. This Global Industry Analyst (GIA) will conduct fundamental research that leads to differentiated insights derived from asking innovative questions, anticipating trends, identifying risks and potential disruptions in a rapidly changing industry. Over time, we expect the GIA to take on portfolio management responsibilities for his/her industry within the firm's research portfolios. Ideally the GIA will be based in Europe, however, other locations will be considered with the understanding that frequent travel to the region will be expected.

Essential Skills

The following essential skills are required for the role:

Investment acumen and passion - The GIA will have a deep understanding of the Consumer industry, sectors, and companies, identify mispricing and valuation discrepancies, make investment recommendations, and communicate his/her findings to Portfolio Managers globally, who manage long-only and hedge fund portfolios on behalf of our clients. The ideal candidate will be passionate about the markets, with a demonstrated track record of successful stock recommendations. He/she must exhibit a fundamental, research oriented, bottom up approach, supported by a strong investment philosophy and process. Furthermore, the GIA will be able to implement those ideas through a highly analytical and detailed approach.

Superior collaboration and influencing skills - The successful candidate will enjoy being an individual contributor within a highly collaborative team, and embrace the benefits of overlapping lines of company coverage and idea generation. The GIA will build strong trusting relationships internally with colleagues, and externally with company management teams. The ability to take risk and challenge investment views is critical, as is the humility to admit mistakes, and a desire to learn from others; the ideal candidate must recognize the benefits of diverse perspectives. The ability to communicate (both verbally and in writing) action oriented opinions clearly and with conviction, and to contribute to an open investment dialogue is important.

Growth mindset - The flexibility and openness to continue learning, evolving and growing as an investor is required. The GIA will have a global perspective, and creative approach for thinking about innovation and the next generation of the investment industry, and evolution of the Consumer sector within it.
