We’re training the next generation of Point72 Investors
Point72 is a global asset management firm that dedicates significant time and resources to the careers of its Portfolio Managers (PMs) and Analysts. PMs make investments, but Analysts do the deep and thorough fundamental research on which they rely. Today’s Analysts are tomorrow’s PMs and Point72 invests a lot of time in finding and training them. That’s why we started the Point72 Academy – to train the next generation of Point72 Analysts.
