Bloomberg Intelligence - Equity Analyst - ESG
Posted Feb 11, 2020 - Requisition No. 81264
Companies are the backbone of the stock and bond markets. Bloomberg Intelligence ("BI") conducts in-depth research on large and midsize companies to help stock and bond investors effectively evaluate those companies. We analyse the unique attributes of each business, how it competes against other companies in its industry and how the business strategies and successes translate into financial results. Our analysis also focuses on the industry looking at the changing landscape and how it will affect company performance. Our analysts also research the technology, regulation, litigation and economies that will shape the environment for these companies and the related industry impact.
BI research is a combination of written analysis accompanied by interactive charting and analytics created from company reported data as well as industry and government data. Analysts review, check and curate this data into comprehensive and logically arranged dashboards to support their own research and to provide Bloomberg Terminal users a platform to view and analyse the data as well.
The BI ESG Team
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and Sustainable Finance are at the heart of Bloomberg LP’s global strategy. The commitment to leading the ESG conversation with data and analysis has spanned more than a decade, and includes ESG teams across the organisation in Global Data, Global Products and Global Research & Media.
As the investment research arm of Bloomberg, Bloomberg Intelligence currently has a global dedicated team of 5 Analysts – and is continuing to grow. The team leverages Bloomberg’s differentiated platform, proprietary technology, data analytics, and culture of innovation – to deliver unique ESG and thematic insight and solutions to our clients.
BI ESG team is looking to hire an ESG Analyst in London, to expand all aspects of the team’s work.
In this role the analyst will help drive understanding of how ESG and sustainable themes can be used to make better-informed investment decisions through the development of company, industry and thematic proprietary research. Through research publication, data management and marketing, the analyst is expected to effectively communicate relevant insights and investment themes, identifying financial impacts of complex issues. The analyst will be expected to promote BI ESG insights internally and externally.
In this role, the analyst will also have the opportunity to contribute to broader ESG initiatives within Bloomberg and in the markets.
