Beginning Your Investing Career with Point72 Academy
The Point72 Academy is a paid, full-time opportunity to apply your experience to the complex and ever-changing puzzle of the global markets. You will learn to create and refine financial models, prepare stock recommendations, and communicate your ideas effectively.
Our investment teams rely on deep subject-matter expertise, and the combination of your health sciences background and our financial training can help launch your investing career.
The Healthcare Associate program begins in Summer 2022 and includes two sections—a three-month classroom intensive, followed by five months of special projects, investment research, and continued coaching from our Academy and Investment Professional Development teams. If you are successful, at the end of the program you will be placed full-time on a healthcare-focused investing team in an analyst role.
Your experience in the program will include:
Academics: Through focused classroom work, you will build a foundation in accounting, financial modeling, and fundamental research with instruction from Academy faculty, Point72 investment professionals, and leading university professors.
Apprenticeship: You will pair your new skills with your expertise in health sciences to tackle special projects from our healthcare portfolio managers, developing insights in support of their investment processes.
Mentorship You will join Point72’s internal network of Academy alum and analysts who can advise you throughout the program and beyond.
We pride ourselves on analyst development and on being a place where great talent can build a long-term career. Today, nearly one-third of our analysts graduated from the Point72 Academy program, and roughly half of Point72 portfolio managers that went through our emerging manager program, Point72 LaunchPoint, started as analysts at the Firm.
