Do you enjoy watching how company-specific news and current events impact the financial markets? Like solving puzzles and working competitively with a team to win? SIG's Graduate Buy-side Research Program is an opportunity to transfer that passion into a successful career.
SIGSydney is on the lookout for bright, friendly students who are interested in the world around them to join our Graduate Buy-side Research Analyst Program starting in January 2022.
SIG is one of the world's largest market makers, with a unique approach to trading, technology, and research. While this background puts us at the top of our game, what really makes us successful is our quantitative approach to decision making and the collaboration between our employees.
Graduate Buy-side Research Analyst Program
Our Buy-side Research Analysts work directly with our traders to identify trading opportunities in the equity and options markets. From providing real-time opinions on breaking news to in-depth analysis of future catalyst events, our Buy-side Research Analysts have a constant impact on our trading strategies.
As a Buy-side Research Analyst, you will be responsible for finding opportunities that other market participants may not be capitalizing on, either by discovering new information or considering existing knowledge from a different perspective. You will be embedded in a sector-focused trading desk and work collaboratively with traders who rely heavily on the analysis you provide to make trading decisions.
As a graduate, you can expect on-the-job training and to have a direct impact on the business almost immediately.
At SIG, we believe that there is always something to learn and that ideas can come from anywhere, whether you are one of the founders or fresh out of university. Our focus on education has given us the reputation of having best-in-class development in the industry. As a Buy-side Research Analyst, you will have a personalised learning program and will attend finance classes with our graduate traders.
What we're looking for
Successful candidates typically have…
Apply -> Quantitative Assessment -> Case Study -> Interview -> Job Offer
We hire on a rolling basis and will lose roles when we have achieved our hiring needs. Therefore we recommend applicants apply early.
While we have made many adjustments in response to COVID-19, SIG is still defined by our commitment to collaboration, education, and community. We have every hope and intention to continue sending our graduate Equity Research Analysts to the US for training, we recognize that it is impossible to guarantee this part of the program during the pandemic. We will only resume international travel when it is safe for our employees to do so. In the event international travel is not possible, our new analysts will receive the same high-quality education that is typical of SIG's Graduate Equity Research Analyst Program in Sydney rather than the US.
We don't post salary ranges externally so any salary estimate you see listed on a third-party website was not provided by SIG and may not be accurate.
SIG is not accepting unsolicited resumes from search firms. All resumes submitted by search firms to any employee at SIG via-email, the Internet or directly without a valid written search agreement will be deemed the sole property of SIG, and no fee will be paid in the event the candidate is hired by SIG."
