Careers at Bloomberg

New York

Posted Aug 7, 2017 - Requisition No. 59926

A buy-side analyst needs his/her most recent investment case updates and internal security scores to hit his/her fund manager’s workflow. S/he publishes this critical information using Bloomberg RMS, allowing portfolio monitoring tools and research feeds to be updated with his/her the latest thinking.
A fund manager needs immediately to see how his/her analyst’s estimates compare against the market consensus. Using Bloomberg RMS, s/he can see this instantly to profit from opportunities.

The head of research wants to ensure that his/her analysts always publish an update on a stock within a certain number of days from an earnings release. Using this product, clients are able to search across a universe and see which stocks haven’t had a recent update from their analysts immediately after earnings.
The buy-side use Bloomberg's Research products to optimize their workflow both on desktop and mobile. Our creative research products enable buy-side analysts to publish and share their meeting notes, investment theses, and other critical custom data (such as internal scores, target prices, estimates, ratings) and more over the Bloomberg terminal, with this content being fully integrated into our core functionality.

As the research environment changes with regulation and standard methodologies, we have a full suite of research tools which allow the buy-side to monitor and analyze broker interactions.
