This project received pledges on Thu 02 Nov 2017

12 analysts enrolled in a 15 week, 9-hour intensive course in modelling and valuation training with everyone completing 2 firm specific coverage of 8 equity research reports and 2 sell-side M&A pitchbooks. At our industry sponsors’ discretion, each analyst will receive at least 8 weeks of part-time internships with a hedge fund or private equity firm alongside alumni coaching and networking.

WHAT WE DO

Our goal is to give opportunities to the most committed of Warwick students from all years and disciplines that have unflinching desire to enter the financial sector. They undergo intensive training in the necessary skills and experience in financial modelling, valuation and networking to enter boutique investment banks, private equities and hedge funds.

Our project promotes:

  • Intensive training (modelling, DCF, LBO, restructuring) and practice (sector research, equity research) on our Analyst program
  • Investment banking, private equity, and hedge fund vacancies
  • Public events, including: alumni talks, networking, company presentations
  • Participation of Case Study Events and Competitions

INDUSTRY PARTNERS

Wall Street Prep and Wiley have partnered with us to aid us in the technical training of our analysts.

University of Warwick, Dartmouth Partners, and a network of private alumni donors assist us in the job marketplace.

WHY BE OUR DONOR?

We believe we offer a unique opportunity to all Warwick students that is founded on meritocracy rather than internal networking within student relations and societies. We offer Warwick students equal opportunities to accessing our employment-enhancing Analyst program and London networking events free of charge. However, this industry-standard experience comes at a cost, that we must rely on our network of donors: student subscribers, alumni and firms to keep this project going.

Please review our Rewards section to see which pledge would be best for you.

OUR BACKSTORY

As 4 undergraduate finalists at Warwick with previous experience in other prominent finance-related societies, we noticed a gap in the technical skills of Warwick students that prevents them from entering the boutique financial advisory industry.

Consequently, we have established a finance lab that focuses on financial advisory to give the opportunities to the most committed of Warwick students from all years and disciplines that have a strong commitment to enter the financial sector.
