Hedge Fund Research Analyst
Our Hedge Fund Research Analyst will focus on coverage of the macro hedge fund manager universe and on investment due diligence.
Coverage of the Macro Manager Universe: You’ll focus on improving our coverage of macro hedge fund managers. Taking advantage of Clocktower’s unique network and access, you’ll produce reports and write-ups analyzing both specific managers and the broader macro and hedge fund space.
Investment Due Diligence: You’ll assist in the investment team’s investment due diligence process by analyzing the strategies of potential seed managers, including their research and idea generation, trading and portfolio construction, and risk frameworks. You’ll identify what gives a potential seed his or her edge, while being attuned to potential investment risks. Your writing skills will be important in assisting in drafting clear, detailed investment due diligence memos.
Client Support: Our clients are sophisticated institutional investors, including sovereign wealth funds, pension funds, and university endowments. You’ll respond to client research requests and work on ad hoc projects, including industry research, market overviews, and manager analysis. As you become more familiar with our business, you’ll increasingly interface directly with clients on regular calls and via email.
Investment Team Support: You will be a jack-of-all-trades, proactively solving whatever problems arise. You don’t get thrown or flustered easily, since you might find yourself stepping in and taking the lead on a call with a hedge fund CIO or in responding to an urgent client request. You don’t mind coordinating calendars and wrangling the busy members of our investment team.
