Davidson Kempne – Investment Analyst Rotational Program 2023-2025

Location: New York

Role Description: 

This is a 2-year analyst program that will involve a rotation in the first year across different investment teams within credit and equities, ranging from U.S. Corporate Distressed, Real Estate, Structured Products, L/S Credit, Convertible Arb, Merger Arb, Special Situations and L/S Equities.  The experience will provide exposure to both private and public equity and credit markets. We will offer excel, corporate finance and accounting training, including access to extensive virtual programs, but most of the learning will come from apprenticeship and working side by side with the investment teams.  In the second year of the program the analyst will remain with one team to gain deeper knowledge and further develop skills. There is an opportunity to stay beyond the two years for analysts who perform at a high level.

No prior investment experience is expected but an interest in markets and investing is a plus. Responsibilities include working with the team to identify, research and recommend potential investments and monitor an investment from initiation to conclusion. The right candidate will be a self-starter and an independent, critical thinker who can work in an environment that emphasizes teamwork.

Ideal Candidate Qualifications: 

  • Strong academic achievement and analytical skills
  • Excellent oral and written communication
  • Ability to think quickly, critically and objectively
  • Team player
  • Self-motivated, pro-active and entrepreneurial spirit
  • Extracurriculars and leadership experience is a plus
