The Graduate Equity Research Analyst position is SIG’s full-time entry level role as analyst on SIG’s Market Intelligence team. As an equity research analyst you will partner with our senior analysts and traders to identify investment opportunities in the equity or options market.


Research analysts provide real-time opinions on breaking news and in-depth analysis of future volatility events. You will be responsible for finding opportunities that other market participants may not be capitalising on, either by discovering new information or considering existing knowledge from a different perspective. Analysts are embedded in a trading desk and the analysis you provide will directly impact trading decisions.


At SIG, we place a high value on education and development, especially for recent graduates. You will experience this dedication to training as you work collaboratively with the research analysts and traders on your desk to gain hands-on exposure. This is also the opportunity to travel to other SIG locations to progress your training and also travel within Europe attending conferences and analyst meetings. You will also learn about options and the decision-making strategies that our traders employ. This role provides the unique opportunity to combine the quantitative aspects of finance with creative problem-solving in order to develop trade ideas in a fast-paced, proprietary trading environment.


This is a graduate role with a projected start date of Summer 2018.


Specific job duties include

  • Identifying and analysing upcoming volatility events.
  • Providing real-time opinions on breaking news.
  • Collaborating with derivative traders on investment ideas.
  • Forecasting dividends.
  • Evaluating special situations such as mergers, acquisitions, and other corporate actions.
  • Traveling to company events and conferences as required.
  • Performing stock valuation analysis.

What we’re looking for


  • Minimum of a bachelor's degree
  • Passion for, and identifiable interest in the financial markets and current affairs
  • Strong written, analytical, quantitative and financial research skills
  • CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) designation is not a prerequisite, though interest in completing the program or having passed Level 1 is an advantage.
  • Ability to prioritize and complete multiple tasks in a fast-paced, dynamic environment
  • Prior exposure to fundamental company research an advantage
  • Familiarity with a trading environment and derivative products preferred
  • A self-starter, quick learner, effective communicator, and problem solver
  • Willingness to work additional and flexible hours when necessary
