Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) Analyst
Posted Oct 8, 2018 - Requisition No. 71165
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.

Good communication skills are key attributes of the role as this person will regularly be collaborating on research with Bloomberg Intelligence colleagues, and will be communicating with Bloomberg terminal clients via phone calls, in-person meetings, and online chat.
