As a Senior Analyst, you will be a key driver of eVestment’s mission to bring transparency and efficiency to private markets. You will be tasked with helping build a best-in-class data solution for institutional investors, consultants and general partners. If the idea of leading high-impact, highly visible initiatives in a growing team seems exciting to you, this role could be a perfect fit.
In this role, you will:
• Be instrumental in the expansion of our Private Markets team as you partner with eVestment clients and asset managers to improve the availability of data to meet screening and due diligence needs
• Establish best-in-class operations – Embrace new technologies for data collection and leverage experience to develop institutionalized best practice for data collection and management
• Function both as a brand ambassador for eVestment Private Markets and as a zealous advocate and strong partner for our clients. You will demonstrate a keen understanding of different approaches to due diligence and communicate with clients and reporting managers to achieve desired outcomes.
• Act as a knowledge expert on eVestment’s suite of Private Markets solutions and technological capabilities. Work to develop new approaches to gathering data and deepen support of reporting managers who need to share their data with investors and consultants.
What we need: We are looking for proof of your passion for financial software and data and a desire to disrupt the paradigm for sharing data in due diligence. Having a BS/BA/BBA in Economics, Accounting, Finance, MIS, CIS, Mathematics, etc. is a great start, however this position is open to all majors. We’d like you to have 4-5 years of experience in the Private Markets space – whether at an Investment Manager, Consultant, Investor or Service Provider.
Having a strong working knowledge of databases (e.g., SQL), data management and customer service will set you apart from the crowd in our eyes. We are looking for leadership qualities. Progress towards CFA, CAIA, Investment Foundations or an advanced business degree is a strong plus.
A certain degree of personal accountability, creativity, and latitude are required and encouraged. Your desire to build working knowledge of applicable financial terminology and industry best practices will help you be successful in this role and in our company. You embrace technology (Excel proficiency is just the beginning for you); creating pivot tables, using VLOOKUP is already a part of your skill set.
We need excellence. This means your communication skills are stellar: polished, professional communication skills and detailed analytical skills are vital as client interaction is high. We need innovation. This means you question the status quo and love asking “What if…?” We need teamwork. This means when a colleague asks “Can someone help me with…?” you’re quick to answer “Yes.” We need humility. This means you understand about lending a hand where necessary. We need integrity. This means you deliver results with little supervision and don’t hesitate to acknowledge, own, and resolve errors you’ve made (we all make them, we just have to learn from them).
