Equity Research
 
Research is an important component of the firm's equity franchise.  Research analysts serve two different "client" constituencies in their career:  J.P. Morgan's institutional investor clients and internal personnel from sales and trading who leverage our analysts' research and industry/sector expertise.  This capability supports an outstanding network of relationships with corporate and institutional clients that lie at the heart of our Corporate & Investment Bank franchise.
 
Description:
 
We are looking to hire an Associate to join our Food Producers and Retail team in New York.  The research associate’s primary responsibilities include industry analysis and company-specific coverage, primarily in the Food Retail and Protein Manufacturing spaces.  This involves core research ranging from dissecting earnings releases and regulatory filings to assessing relevant news events, modelling financial statements and industry dynamics, performing detailed valuation work, writing research notes and sector pieces, and speaking to internal and external clients and management teams about the stocks and sector. 
 
Research is fast-paced, demanding and intellectually stimulating. We look for candidates who possess strong accounting, finance, quantitative and business writing/communication skills, as well as modelling, forecasting, and valuation experience.
Qualifications:
 
The ideal candidate will have 3-5 years of experience in research, investment banking or another analytical and demanding role, ideally in the consumer sector.  Candidates should demonstrate an advanced level of proficiency in Excel, strong written and oral communication skills, and a passion for the markets.  An MBA from a top-tier institution is strongly preferred.  A CFA, or progress toward a CFA, is a plus.
 
Candidates must be adaptable, have the ability to work well under pressure in a sometimes-intense environment, and be able to work independently to produce accurate, detailed materials while meeting tight deadlines.   Intellectual curiosity, a strong work ethic and a team player mentality are desired attributes.
