The three-year program will help you gain insight into our industry, firm and culture, as well as gain knowledge of the different business divisions that support our investment functions.
The program is split into two parts: (1) for the first 1.5 years you will be working on your business and technical skill set all while assimilating into the firm, your job and our culture and (2) the second 1.5 years you will be discovering your long-term fit here at the firm and will be placed into positions across the firm that are complementary to your skills and interests, and the firm’s business need. IAs have successfully transitioned into roles on their current IA teams, onto other teams in the firm and into other offices across the globe.
We expect new entrants to join the InvesTech Associate Program upon their graduation from university. As part of your onboarding you will participate through our Base Camp Development Program. This program is designed to equip you with new skills and knowledge of our clients, industry, firm, and culture while developing a strong internal network of both your peers and senior colleagues that will set you up for a successful transition into the firm. By investing in your personal growth at the beginning, you will help us continue to exceed our client’s expectations.
