Qube Analyst Program

Analyst Program Overview

 

Qube’s Analyst Program (QAP) consists of Finance students entering the third or fourth year of their program.

Prior to starting work, all student analysts go through an extensive training program: our Valuation Bootcamp, which introduces the students to Qube’s valuation approaches and models. All student work is peer reviewed and revised through a mentoring process with our associate portfolio manager.

First Year – Junior Student Analyst ($20/hr)

Commitment of 7-10 hours per week, 1-2 positions available ideally for those entering their 3rd year of Finance with a specialization in basic equity valuation.

After several training workshops, students will assist in evaluating and rating equity investments currently held in Qube portfolios. Our Portfolio Managers use these ratings as part of sell decisions within our portfolio. Equity valuations include basic quantitative and qualitative reviews (Phase 1 assignments) that determine and define both intrinsic share values, trends in key valuation factors, as well as other quantitative perspectives. Our equity valuation process follows prescribed and classic methodology as taught in the CFA curriculum.

 

Second Year – Senior Student Analysts ($22/hr)

Commitment of 7-10 hours per week, 1-2 positions available ideally for those entering their 4th year of Finance with a specialization in basic equity valuation.

Second-year students will complete equity valuations on prospective investments for the portfolio with recommendations for trade consideration. Fixed income valuation and portfolio construction, as well as other special assignments, will be offered to supplement second-year student experience opportunities. Assistance with mentoring, peer-reviewing, and training of first-year students’ analysts will be done by second-year analysts.

 

Team Lead ($23/hr)

Commitment of 7-10 hours per week, 1 position ideally for those entering their 4th-year of Finance with a specialization in basic equity valuation and have gained a year’s work experience at QIM.

The Team Lead will complete additional responsibilities among those of the Senior Student Analyst including, but not limited to:

 

  • On-campus assistance for student analyst recruitment
  • Engaging in mentorship and development of first-year students
  • Planning and promoting monthly social events within the research team and QIM staffers
  • Coordination of attending CFA Edmonton Society events
  • Partnering student analysts with QIM staffers
  • Tracking and monitoring of analyst’s performance utilizing the analyst scoreboard
