Buy Side Research Analyst

Our Buy Side Research Analyst and Internship Programs provide opportunities to combine the quantitative aspects of trading and finance with creative problem solving.

Desk Training

Your first months as a Buy Side Research Analyst are largely dedicated to training. You will work with a senior analyst on the coverage of their sector, and working with traders to interpret information in the market place. After your training, you will be assigned primary coverage over your own stocks on a sector-focused trading desk.

“From my very first day on the desk, I was thrown right into the middle of things. Having never spent more than 10 minutes on a trading floor, it was great to hear the dialog that takes place between research and the traders from Day 1. Our training on the desk, from learning what is important to traders and how to make quick decisions, was essential for getting acclimated to the fast-paced environment. Recommending a trade and often seeing instant market feedback is a great tool and motivator for improving your thought process and generating new ideas.”
– SIG Equity Analyst

Classroom Education

SIG is committed to providing the tools and knowledge necessary for you to succeed in your role. You will participate in classroom education where you will learn about options theory, decision science, and the products that SIG trades.

Your Impact

The layout of our trading floor promotes a collaborative environment where our Buy Side Research Analysts and traders work together to create an informed decision making process. Each situation is unique; some have relatively simple solutions, while others require comprehensive analysis. You will be challenged to creatively problem solve in order to translate market information into trading ideas.
